Technology Studies

The Communication, Culture & Technology (CCT) M.A. program at
Georgetown University focuses on the ways that new technologies of
communication and digital media are reshaping human experience on all
levels from the local to the global, and how these technologies are
redefining the practice of science, research, education, government,
media, business, and culture and the arts more broadly.  The CCT
Program is now redefining its emphasis on technology and technology
studies, including developing a new lab, which will be a hub of
technology knowledge, discovery, and research, connecting CCT and
Georgetown to the larger world of practice and innovation in all
sectors. The new lab will provide a means for CCT to create
partnerships with leading private sector information organizations
developing innovations in digital media, knowledge management, and
Internet applications; to remain at the forefront of research by
creating relationships with initiatives in the Digital Humanities and
the Information Schools; and push forward the boundaries of knowledge
through external support by agencies and foundations such as NSF and

As a major step toward accomplishing this larger mission for CCT, the
program seeks to appoint a tenure-track Assistant Professor with a
solid knowledge of the key technologies in the post-Internet and
digital media environment, and with interdisciplinary expertise in the
study of technology, including history, theory, and current
methodologies. Applicants must be proficient in teaching the technical
aspects of how technologies work and how such technologies are
employed in communication-related fields.  The appointee will be
expected to help teach a new Fundamentals of Technology course, a core
course in the CCT curriculum, with a focus on the practicum component.
