Jobs: Four Faculty Positions in Digital Humanities and New Media, University of Connecticut

Faculty Job Openings › University of Connecticut.

The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences is dedicating four new faculty positions to the Digital Humanities and New Media cluster.  Three of the four positions will specialize in the Digital Humanities, and will encompass the use of technology in the study of text and the adaptation of literary criticism to account for the many new types of literary production made possible from new technology.  This cluster will enable the College to position its students and faculty at the leading edge of literary studies, preparing majors, especially those in the Department of English, exceptionally well for a changing economy and enabling faculty to compete for external grants supporting the creation of digital publications, editions, journals, and archives.  Additionally, a position in New Media with an academic home in the Department of Communication Sciences will serve as the link between the Digital Humanities cluster and a closely related cluster focused on Digital Media.
