DEPARTMENT OF ART HISTORY and MEL HOPPENHEIM SCHOOL OF CINEMA FACULTY OF FINE ARTS, CONCORDIA UNIVERSITY
Cross-Appointed Tenure-Track Faculty Position in Canadian Moving Image Arts Studies
Concordia University’s Department of Art History and the Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinema in the Faculty of Fine Arts invite applications for a full-time, cross-appointed tenure-track faculty position in Canadian Moving Image Arts Studies to begin August 1, 2018.
We are seeking candidates with expertise in moving image arts and visual culture. Moving Image Arts is an umbrella term that includes experimental film, video, installation arts, and expanded cinema, along with other modes of digital arts—all of which have distinct and interrelated histories and futures. We welcome candidates whose research encompasses curating, archiving and historiography. Preference will be given to applicants with a scholarly record focused on any modality of moving image arts and visual culture, including a demonstrated expertise in Canadian, Quebec, and/or Indigenous Media with a research program grounded in one or more of these areas.
The successful cross-appointed candidate’s primary department will depend on their field of expertise, but since they will be expected to teach core undergraduate courses in Art History and Film Studies, they must be comfortable within both disciplinary milieux. Responsibilities will also include the stewardship of the BFA in Art History and Film Studies, including review of curriculum, timetable co-ordination, and mentoring students. In this role, they should demonstrate the ways collaborative, interdisciplinary research and pedagogy in Art History and Film Studies are central to the continued success of this program. The candidate should be prepared to supervise graduate students in either Art History or Film Studies, or both, and serve on graduate supervisory committees, as well as actively embrace program and department stewardship, perform administrative duties and engage in committee work at the department and Faculty levels. Prior activities demonstrating leadership, service, and commitment to diversity will be an asset.
Application Requirements and Deadline
Applications should be submitted electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org on or before November 1, 2017. Submissions must consist of a letter of application; curriculum vitae; a statement of teaching philosophy and interests; a teaching dossier showing evidence of teaching effectiveness (including course syllabi, evaluations, and examples of student work); a research philosophy highlighting future research plans; detailed examples of completed/in-progress works; one example of published scholarly work (peer-reviewed article); and the names and contact information of three referees. Short-listed candidates will be required to provide an attestation of terminal degree. The departments regret that they cannot consider incomplete applications.
All inquiries regarding this position should be sent to email@example.com and directed to:
Dr. Elaine Paterson, Chair, Department of Art History and Dr. Catherine Russell, Chair, Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinema
