Description:

 The Film and Media Studies Program at Smith College invites applications for a 3-year, benefits eligible position at the rank of Visiting Assistant Professor to begin July 1, 2023. The successful candidate will be both a scholar and a maker. We seek scholars of the history and theory of experimental media who can also demonstrate the capacity to teach in one or more areas of media production, broadly conceived.

While experimental media is the area of scholarly expertise we are most seeking, we invite applicants who alternately or additionally are scholars of: critical race studies and media, global cinema, or gender and sexuality in media. The successful candidate will teach five courses per year in Film and Media Studies ranging from the introductory level to advanced seminars, and including both media analysis course and media production courses.
