Assistant Professor in Global Media Studies (Tenure track)

Department of Modern Culture and Media

Brown University



Tenure track Assistant Professor in Global Media Studies, with special interests in television and/or new media in the Department of Modern Culture and Media, Brown University, to begin July 2011.


Modern Culture and Media is a department that emphasizes the theoretically informed analysis of film, television, video, new media, photography, sound technologies, and print in the context of modern and contemporary cultures. The Department seeks candidates for a tenure-track position in Global Media Studies with special interests in new media and/or television. We are interested in a humanities scholar focusing on Global Media Formations. This scholar’s research should critically engage the technological and theoretical transformations and media flows that are rapidly resituating all forms of media and social practices: from televisuality and new media to gaming, vidding, and social networking, from consumer culture and imagined communities to geopolitics and war. We are interested in scholars challenging older conceptions of national culture, region, canons, and/or tradition. Possible research interests also include: the productions and receptions of one or more non-Western or Global South media practices, texts, audiences and/or industries; the comparative/historical analysis of the relations between media formations and other cultural practices; and/or the history and theory of one or more media forms. This position is subject to budgetary approval.


Applicants must have received their Ph.D. by the time of appointment. The candidate should have a strong commitment to teaching and be fluent in television and/or new media theory.


Applicants should send a letter of application, a curriculum vitae, and three letters of recommendation. Applications must be postmarked by November 15, 2010.
