About Binghamton University:
Binghamton University is a world-class institution that unites more than 130 broadly interdisciplinary educational programs with some of the most vibrant research in the nation. Our unique character - shaped by outstanding academics, facilities and community life - promotes extraordinary student success.
Binghamton merges rigorous academics, distinguished faculty and state-of-the-art facilities to engage and challenge its 18,000 students. The high-achieving Binghamton student body also represents a great diversity of life experiences, from first-generation college-goers to international students. Beyond their talent, these classmates share a desire to shape the future through technology, insight, intellectual exploration and community service.
Binghamton University's Cinema Department develops artists and creative thinkers who are willing to explore experimental modalities of practice. A strong history of underground and independent production has made our trailblazing department an antidote to the Hollywood industry model.
We seek applicants for a tenure-track position in film studies with specialization in documentary studies, histories, and theories of media, and/or moving image art. The ideal candidate will have a research and teaching concentration that addresses cinema through a global approach to theories and practices of race and ethnicity. We welcome candidates whose work takes a critical and engaged approach to cinema in a global context and demonstrates expertise in one or more of the following areas: transnationality; diasporic and/or hemispheric contexts and cultures; the internationalization of cultural forms and publics; circulation and migration; colonialism, decolonization, and postcolonialism; and networks of global exchange. Preferred candidates would contribute to the diversity of the Department.
This is a full-time, tenure-track appointment in our film studies stream at the rank of assistant professor with a 2/2 teaching load. The successful candidate will maintain an active scholarly practice and will also contribute to the department via service, including committee work, independent studies, thesis, curricular development, etc. We started an MFA in Cinema Program in Fall 2023, and the successful applicant will work together with the faculty, staff, and students to shape this new program.
We are committed to offering an enriching educational environment that is inclusive of all of its constituents and that fosters a diverse, multi-vocal, connected community. We recognize that the field of cinema does not reflect the diversity of the population that it serves. We invite applications from colleagues who share in our commitment to a more inclusive discipline, through research and teaching.
This position is part of Binghamton's multiyear cluster hire initiative in Arts Practice, Performance and Research in the 21st Century.
Applicants must have a PhD in film studies, art history, or a related field by time of appointment, as well as a strong dedication to teaching and active research program. Interdisciplinary, global and cross-cultural perspectives are highly encouraged.
