Rollins College (Florida) would like to invite you to consider joining a dedicated team who oversee an interdisciplinary department and undergraduate major in Critical Media and Cultural Studies. Our curriculum includes core courses centered on research and theory; elective courses in an area of concentration congruent with each student’s interests (e.g., Economic Inequality; Gender and Sexualities; Media and Human Rights); and lab requirements focused on skills such as video shooting and image-, sound-, and video editing.
As a small, highly-interdependent department, we seek a colleague who will contribute to and thrive within a collaborative environment. Our program is grounded in Rollins’ core mission of “global citizenship” and in the values of equality, peace, and justice; we seek a colleague whose teaching, research, service, and everyday life strive to embody that mission and those values.
Our new colleague typically will teach 6 courses per year, perhaps half of them in our core: Introduction to Media and Cultural Studies; Researching Media and Culture; Critical Frameworks for Contemporary Culture; and Senior Research Practicum. Typical class size is 18-22.
Research and teaching foci of particular interest include but are not limited to: Social Justice Journalism, Human Rights Journalism, Peace Journalism, Public Interest Journalism, Social Justice Filmmaking, and Digital Storytelling (especially as it pertains to equality, peace, and justice). Other desirable qualities include journalism and/or filmmaking experience; participation in and/or supervision of a campus media outlet; and the ability to train students in video shooting and editing.
This tenure-track assistant professorship begins August 2014. Terminal degree is preferred, advanced A.B.D. considered. The College offers generous research, conference, and international travel funds. Interested candidates must apply online through Rollins’ employment website.
