Language, Technology and Politics
The Communication, Culture & Technology (CCT) M.A. program at Georgetown University focuses on the relationship between new computational technologies of communication and areas such as science, scholarship, culture, government, media, business, journalism and the arts. The program seeks to appoint a tenure-track Assistant Professor working on the relationship between language and technologies of communication and associated political issues. Candidates whose research emphasizes technology, internet linguistics, language and politics, intercultural communication, or language and sex/gender, race, class or national identity will be given priority. They should be current in the history, theory, and methodologies of their field. Applicants who demonstrate classroom experience using new media/digital teaching approaches, such as student-developed Web sites, blogs, digital stories, documentary film, and digital portfolios, are especially encouraged to apply. The successful candidate will have scholarly publications and teaching experience at the graduate level (or comparable), and be prepared to advise and to mentor M.A. thesis projects. Faculty are expected to contribute broadly to the interdisciplinary research and teaching of the program.
Outstanding candidates may be considered for appointment at a higher rank. Georgetown University is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity employer and strongly encourages applications from women and minority candidates as part of its commitment to professional excellence and diversity.
