The UCLA Department of World Arts and Cultures/Dance is conducting an Assistant/Associate Professor search for a scholar-practitioner working in one of the following areas: Visual Culture Studies, Critical Curatorial Studies, and Documentary Media-Making. They seek a colleague who will strengthen offerings in the arts of contemporary social movements and the politics of art production. Their program values arts-activism and they welcome applications from persons whose research foregrounds the perspectives of historically underrepresented communities. Ideal candidates will be conducting interdisciplinary research that takes the form of both scholarly and creative outputs. They hope to hire a scholar-practitioner whose work demonstrates how a mode of representation is shaped through collaborative research design and a practice of methodological ethics. Applications are sought from candidates who specialize in at least one of the following areas:

  • Practices and discourses that consider diverse or underrepresented cultural perspectives in the field of Visual Culture Studies.
  • Practices and approaches of Critical Curatorial Studies.
  • Documentary media-making that embodies critical engagement with institutionalized practices of documentary representation. Fields of specialism may span ethnographic, observational, performative and poetic documentaries.
