The School of Humanities, Arts, and Cultural Studies and the Interdisciplinary Art and Performance (IAP) Program invite applications for a non-tenure-track full time Lecturer position with expertise in at least two of the following areas:  interdisciplinary art, performance, digital media, games, media criticism, and 20th and 21st century experimental Art and Performance.

We seek an artist and/or a scholar and whose expertise falls within the purview of interdisciplinarity, new media, performance, humanities, cultural studies, and social practice. Candidates should have the ability to critique diverse categories of social and/or cultural interaction and provide a framework for students to experiment with and revise prevailing distinctions between creative and intellectual fields while engaging in open dialogue about topics in contemporary art and life. The anticipated teaching portfolio of the successful candidate will include undergraduate courses in several areas of art including: video, printmaking, games, sound, movement, acting, voice, theory, and other media, including familiarity with systems of knowledge outside of the field of art. Candidates must be invested in art-making and aesthetic theory as forms of critical inquiry integrating research and interdisciplinary problem-solving. The position will include supporting the teaching of our online IAP program, which mirrors the immersion program.

The IAP program allows students to develop intellectual and creative strengths towards future careers that revolve around contemporary art and culture. IAP facilitates individual educational and professional goals specific to each student that often combine critical thinking, problem solving, conceptual development with other academic areas, from the humanities to digital arts, performance, philosophy, psychology, humanities, and cultural studies. The program facilitates creation in the form of interdisciplinary exchanges and collaborations.

Teaching will encompass the entire curricular range from introductory courses for both prospective majors and general education students, to intermediate and advanced courses focused on connecting material and immaterial art practices with current issues and theory. The successful candidate will have extensive experience and/or a vested interest in online teaching of the arts. They will be able to offer students sustained access and rigorous exposure to interdisciplinary art practices in order to stimulate open consideration of the role of art in communities. Other areas involved in this conversation would necessarily include: the nature of audience-artist relationships; the softening of disciplinary boundaries; the potential for creative practice in political mobilization; and the role of art in society and across the arts, humanities, cultural studies, and social sciences in a liberal arts curriculum.  Since our online IAP program is highly enrolled, it is critical that the successful candidate will have experience and/or interest in online education. Lecturers in the New College of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences typically teach four (4) courses per semester with a 20% service obligation.

The candidate will be expected to collaborate and contribute effectively within our community with a strong commitment to facilitating diversity, equity, and inclusion. ASU’s faculty engage in teaching, research, and service.
