POSITION CRITERIA:   The successful candidate, who must have PhD at the time of appointment, will teach six classes in the Media and Visual Culture program.

The two remaining courses will be in the candidate’s area of specialization. There will be some expectation of advising and other service to a relatively new, growing program. Field of expertise is open, but preference given to those working on international and global media cultures, especially in the global south.
