INTERNATIONAL CALL FOR APPLICATIONS Postdoctoral Fellowship at the Center for Advanced Research in Global Communication, Annenberg School for Communication, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA. Deadline: April 1, 2018.
The Center for Advanced Research in Global Communication at the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Pennsylvania invites applications for a “CARGC Postdoctoral Fellowship.” This is a one-year position renewable for a second year based on successful performance.
The Center for Advanced Research in Global Communication (CARGC) produces and promotes scholarly research on global communication and public life. As an institute for advanced study dedicated to global media studies, we revisit enduring questions and engage pressing matters in geopolitics and communication. Our vision of “inclusive globalization” recognizes plurality and inequality in global media, politics, and culture.
CARGC postdoctoral fellows work on their own research, typically a book manuscript, and collaborate with staff and postdoctoral, doctoral and undergraduate fellows. They also design and teach one undergraduate course, typically during their second year. They also present a CARGC Colloquium and publish at least one original CARGC Paper with CARGC Press. Fellows are provided a stipend of $50,000, a research fund of $3000, health insurance, a work space, computer and library access.
We are interested in scholars integrating primary sources and regional expertise in theoretically inflected, historically informed, comparative, translocal and transnational analyses of media, technology, geopolitics and culture. Candidates challenging normative paradigms and incorporating non-Western theories, sources and contexts, are especially welcome. Current research groups focus on “theory and history in global media studies,” “geopolitics, media & culture,” “digital sovereignty,” and “radical media and culture.”
