Georgia Tech's School of Literature, Communication, and Culture is an
internationally recognized leader in redefining humanities-based education
for the digital era. The school has brought together a uniquely strong
faculty in film studies, hypertext, interactive narrative, electronic art,
media and performance studies, and in cultural studies of science and
technology. The research life of the School includes Configurations, the
journal of the Society for Literature and Science, and the film journal
Postscript. The School's faculty are engaged in new media project
development both in LCC's dedicated New Media Center and in collaboration
with innovative computer scientists through Georgia Tech's Center for
Graphics, Visualization, and Usability. The School offers a B.S. in
Science, Technology, and Culture and an M.S. in Information Design and
Technology. A Ph.D. is in the planning stages.
The School plans to make two appointments in interactive media: one at the
rank of associate professor and one at the rank of assistant professor. It
seeks candidates who are practitioner-theorists with expertise in one or
more of the following specialties: digital art and design, simulation and
game design, 3-D computing, humanities computing, electronic
journalism, digital filmmaking and videography, and/or educational
applications of new media. Applicants should have either a Ph.D. in an
appropriate field or an appropriate terminal degree. Candidates for the
senior position should have significant publication and/or digital products.
