Colorado College invites applications for an Assistant Professor of  
New Media (tenure-track) from candidates across the liberal arts whose  
research addresses the theory and practice of media, digital culture,  
and technology. An ideal candidate will examine the interplay between  
society, technology, and art within a broad historical framework.  
Candidates should also focus on the impact of media and technology on  
ways of thinking, the production of subjectivity, and the interaction  
of community and aesthetics.

The Assistant Professor of New Media will be housed in the recently- 
constructed interdisciplinary Cornerstone Arts Center. Given the  
primacy of the arts in the Cornerstone, it is important for candidates  
to demonstrate facility with current artistic theory and practice. As  
part of their professional responsibilities, candidates will be  
expected to actively promote the use of Cornerstone’s facilities,  
which include smart classrooms, digital computing labs, and publicly  
accessible, multi-purpose spaces designed to cultivate connections  
among artistic and critical practices. This task includes helping to  
develop an all-college program in Media Studies. Candidates should  
understand the demands particular to pedagogy in the liberal arts and  
the college’s commitment to critical thinking and writing across the  

Although the position will emphasize theoretical approaches to the  
study of media, candidates with teaching experience in a creative  
field related to their area of research are encouraged to apply. Ph.D.  

For full consideration, applications and complete dossiers (curriculum  
vitae, three letters of recommendation, graduate transcripts, and  
teaching philosophy) should be submitted by January 15, 2011 to:
