U New Mexico Job Ad: Culture & Comm (USA)

Job adsAssistant Professor in Culture and Communication, Department of Communication & Journalism, University of New Mexico, NM. Deadline: November 14, 2018.

The intercultural emphasis at UNM defines culture broadly as pertaining to emergent identities; discursive practices and norms; performative, artistic, and mediated forms; locations of speaking/acting/producing; organizational systems; and institutional structures. Culture is socially constructed and structurally produced and therefore a factor that is influential across all communication contexts. Courses reflect this emphasis, focusing on questions and critiques of “diversity” in and across local, national, and global contexts; identities and subjectivities (i.e., nationality, race, gender, ethnicity, sexuality, class, multivocality, intersectionality, positionality, and agency); and places and spaces (i.e., transnationalism and globalization, migration, borderlands, social activism and change, and sustainability).
