                       IN TECHNOCULTURAL STUDIES

         Division of Humanities, Arts, and Cultural Studies
                    University of California, Davis

The University of California, Davis invites applications and nominations for
the Director of the Center for Technocultural Studies, a new UC Davis
interdisciplinary educational center with an emphasis on creative research
and teaching at the intersections of the arts, humanities, and technology.
The mission of this center will include interventions and investigations in
the social, political, cultural and artistic implications of technology for
our rapidly globalizing world. Four general subareas of research are
envisioned: Digital Studies; Hypertext-Hypermedia Studies; Program in Visual
Culture, and a Program in Artistic Intervention and Resistant Responses. The
Director will oversee development of new undergraduate and graduate programs
in technocultural studies, will provide direction and planning for
multimedia facilities and studios, and will develop a strong public presence
for the Center. Responsibilities will include curriculum and faculty
development, fund raising, and the development of partnerships with
innovators in the digital arts, media and industries as well as research and
teaching. The Center will complement existing programs in the Division of
Humanities, Arts, and Cultural Studies [HARCS], and provide a bridge between
HARCS and the social sciences, engineering, sciences and agriculture. The
position will be a senior appointment and requires a Ph.D., MFA, or
equivalent, a record of strong scholarly or artistic accomplishment and
evidence of a sustained commitment to interdisciplinary research and
collaboration. This appointment has a beginning date of September, 2001.
