The FTVDM Department focuses on intermedial frameworks that emphasize social justice and inclusivity and would particularly welcome a scholar who expands the department's research and teaching coverage of LGBTQ, race, ethnic, and/or disability studies approaches. Record of scholarly affiliation with related departments and area/ethnic studies research centers also a plus. Deadline for submission of application: November 1, 2018.
