Assistant Professor in Digital Media Studies

The Department of Communication and Culture at Indiana University  
invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professor position  
in digital media studies to begin Fall 2008. We seek an individual  
with expertise in critical approaches to digital media to join an  
innovative, interdisciplinary program that includes media studies,  
ethnography and performance studies, and rhetoric and public culture.  
While we invite candidates from a wide range of disciplinary  
backgrounds, we encourage applicants involved in research on the  
cultural, political, and communicative aspects of online games and in  
the broader field of digital game studies. Research may involve the  
formal qualities of digital games, their social and political  
dimensions, as well as questions of genre, narrative, and history.  
Applicants should be prepared to discuss the role that digital media  
play in shaping perceptions of history and culture, in forging  
individual and collective identities, and in mediating social change.  
Applicants are expected to have a strong research agenda and a  
commitment to excellence in teaching. Preference will be given to  
candidates who have their Ph.D. in hand by the date of appointment.  
Applicants should send a letter of application, curriculum vitae,  
writing sample, and three letters of recommendation.  Review of  
applications will begin on November 16, 2007. Address applications  
to: Christopher Anderson, Chair, Digital Media Studies Search,  
Department of Communication and Culture, 800 East Third St., Indiana  
University, Bloomington IN 47405.

Indiana University is an equal opportunity/affirmative action  
employer and has a strong commitment to the principle of diversity in  
all areas. We are especially interested in receiving applications  
from a broad spectrum of scholars, including women, members of racial  
and ethnic minorities, and disabled individuals.
