University of Michigan Assistant Professor Position
An open position at the University of Michigan with field specialization and demonstrated expertise in the area they have termed "digital environments." Scholars examining all aspects of digital media are encouraged to apply. AC is interested in how new technologies and information cultures intersect with questions of migration, immigration, class, community, identity, political democracy, social networking, race, gender, projections of American power, and/or citizenship. Applicants whose research foregrounds the cultural impact and dimensions of digital media are particularly encouraged to apply, as are those whose work intersects with American Studies, Ethnic Studies, or Cultural Studies.
This is strictly an assistant professor, tenure-track position. This is part of a cluster hire in Digital Environments with parallel searches occurring in our Department of Communications Studies, Department of English Language and Literature, and the School of Information Technology.
