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.”
