Binghamton University’s Cinema Department develops artists and creative thinkers who are willing to explore the experimental. A strong history of underground and independent production has made our trailblazing department an antidote to the Hollywood industry model.
We seek applicants for a tenure-track position in film studies with a specialization in documentary studies, histories, and theories of media, and/or moving image art. The ideal candidate will have a research and teaching concentration that addresses cinema through a global approach to theories and practices of race and ethnicity. We welcome candidates whose work takes a critical and engaged approach to cinema in a global context and demonstrates expertise in one or more of the following areas: transnationality; diasporic and/or hemispheric contexts and cultures; the internationalization of cultural forms and publics; circulation and migration; colonialism, decolonization, and postcolonialism; and networks of global exchange. Preferred candidates would contribute to the diversity of the Department.
This is a full-time, tenure-track appointment in our film studies stream at the rank of assistant professor with a 2/2 teaching load. The successful candidate will maintain an active scholarly practice and will also contribute to the department via service, including committee work, independent studies, thesis, curricular development, etc. We started an MFA in Cinema Program in Fall 2023, and the successful applicant will work together with the faculty, staff, and students to shape this new program.
