Senior Global Media Position

Global Media and Representation
Mellichamp Academic Initiative Professorships

The University of California, Santa Barbara, invites applications from 
well-established scholars and teachers for an endowed chair in the field 
of "Global Media and Representation." As one of four positions clustered 
around the study of global civil society and dedicated to creating a 
high-profile, dynamic core of senior faculty interested in teaching, 
research, and collaboration within this area, this position will focus 
on the global expansion of media in the twentieth and twenty-first 
centuries. Media such as print, audio, video, graphics, publishing, and 
the Internet have played a central role in weaving the world together 
into evermore complex networks of communication, exchange, 
interdependence, and exclusion, and in creating a new global civil 
society. We are particularly interested in candidates who seek to 
investigate what happens to conceptions of the world when they are 
obliged to submit to the subjectivities, dominions, technologies, 
protocols, and politics of the global media. This exploration may 
consider what happens to information of all kinds (cognitive, sensate, 
imaginative) in the transmissions, translations, interactions, 
dispersions, diversions, and transformations that its cultural 
representation and mediation entails or requires - how these processes 
transpire on a global scale, what controls, manipulates, undermines, and 
dominates them both overtly and covertly, and how, particularly, these 
processes alter representations of what the global was, or is, or should 
be, or could be.

The university is particularly interested in candidates who can 
contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community 
through research, teaching, and service. UC Santa Barbara is an Equal 
Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer. Please respond to the Chair of 
the search committee with a letter of interest, cv, and the names of 
three references. To ensure full consideration, applications should be 
received by December 1, 2007.
