Concordia University (CAN) - TT Full Time Faculty Position, Canadian Moving Image ArtsEdit

Concordia University’s Department of Art History and the Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinema in the Faculty of Fine Arts invite applications for a full-time, cross-appointed tenure-track faculty position in Canadian Moving Image Arts Studies to begin August 1, 2018. 

Context: With over 4,000 students, faculty, and staff, the Faculty of Fine Arts is among the five largest art and design schools in North America. Montréal, our home, is exceptional: with 170,000 university students, a vibrant cultural scene, and the most affordable tuition in Canada, the city ranks among the top ten best destinations in the world for tertiary education. While supporting a significant Anglophone population, Montréal is the second largest French-speaking city after Paris. North America’s number one choice for international events and festivals, Montréal was the first metropolis to be designated a UNESCO City of Design by the Global Alliance for Cultural Diversity. Nestled in the heart of this pulsing city, embraced by a dynamic research university, the Faculty of Fine Arts benefits from extraordinary access to brilliant practitioners, thriving venues, cross-cultural perspectives, and an extensive network of outstanding facilities for research and production.

Faculty and Departments: Taking advantage of our place within the rich fabric of a research university and our long history as one of the premiere sites in Canada for the study and creation of the arts and arts-based scholarship, the Faculty of Fine Arts is currently engaged in a transformative moment in which pedagogical, conceptual, theoretical, and material practices find resonance with a significant diversity of approaches. In our university community, live performance, historical research, methodological innovation, theoretical scholarship, technical experimentation, skills-based production, community fieldwork, as well as traditional and digital fabrication are equally valued. In addition to curricular experimentation, the formation of significant research centres and external partnerships in the Faculty of Fine Arts have enriched opportunities for faculty and students. In 2018 a new Media Bank will open in the Faculty, in which the combined film, video, and image archives of Art History and Film Studies will be housed. This facility will include seminar rooms, breakout space, as well as viewing stations available to students and faculty, and offers great potential for future research initiatives and activities.

The Department of Art History is a vital environment for the study and research of art’s histories, theoretical frameworks, visual and material culture, curatorial practice, education and community engagement. As one of Canada’s leading programs, the Department of Art History offers full undergraduate degree programs in Art History, Art History and Film Studies, and Art History and Studio Art, as well as an MA in Art History and an interuniversity PhD, offered collaboratively with three other institutions. Our curriculum and research reflect a diversity of approaches, and we encourage students to become active contributors to the discipline throughout their studies. The Department of Art History is a mutually supportive environment with a longstanding tradition of ground-breaking scholarship and where teaching is active and innovative, with public learning outcomes often providing a means to invite a sense of shared purpose among our student body and larger university community.

The Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinema—Canada’s largest university-based centre for the study of film animation, film production and film studies—is highly regarded around the world. The School has the distinct advantage of being situated in Concordia’s vibrant Faculty of Fine Arts, where faculty and students enjoy numerous cross-disciplinary opportunities, state-of-the-art resources and facilities, and a rich artistic and cultural context for research and study. Currently, the School’s faculty complement includes 26 full-time professors and a talented cadre of part-time instructors, teaching more than 800 students. The School hosts programs in Film Production, Film Animation, and Film Studies. Among the degrees offered are a BFA in Film Studies, a BFA in Art History and Film Studies, an MA in Film Studies, and a PhD in Film and Moving Image Studies. Our 12 full-time Film Studies faculty members are active scholars in a diversity of subfields, and our PhD program attracts high-caliber international students, and is among the top Film Studies graduate programs in the world.

Since its creation in 2002, the Major in Art History and Film Studies has offered a course of study at the intersection between art history and film studies as scholarly disciplines. A research and writing-intensive program, it attracts top students and is a growth area for both departments. It is a program in which students develop an interdisciplinary understanding of the visual and audio-visual arts, as well as the critical and theoretical discourses pertaining to each discipline. Since its inception, intersections between experimental film practices and moving image gallery works have increased in current moving image arts practice, as have the challenges and strategies of curating, archiving, and preservation. More than ever, this hybrid program is well situated to train students in an expanded history of the moving image, and the associated institutions, artists, and archival practices.

Position Description: We are seeking candidates with expertise in moving image arts and visual culture. Moving Image Arts is an umbrella term that includes experimental film, video, installation arts, and expanded cinema, along with other modes of digital arts—all of which have distinct and interrelated histories and futures. We welcome candidates whose research encompasses curating, archiving and historiography. Preference will be given to applicants with a scholarly record focused on any modality of moving image arts and visual culture, including a demonstrated expertise in Canadian, Quebec, and/or Indigenous Media with a research program grounded in one or more of these areas.

Responsibilities: The successful cross-appointed candidate’s primary department will depend on their field of expertise, but since they will be expected to teach core undergraduate courses in Art History and Film Studies, they must be comfortable within both disciplinary milieux. Responsibilities will also include the stewardship of the BFA in Art History and Film Studies, including review of curriculum, timetable co-ordination, and mentoring students. In this role, they should demonstrate the ways collaborative, interdisciplinary research and pedagogy in Art History and Film Studies are central to the continued success of this program. The candidate should be prepared to supervise graduate students in either Art History or Film Studies, or both, and serve on graduate supervisory committees, as well as actively embrace program and department stewardship, perform administrative duties and engage in committee work at the department and Faculty levels. Prior activities demonstrating leadership, service, and commitment to diversity will be an asset.

Qualifications: Applicants should hold a PhD in either Art History or Film Studies, or a related discipline(s), have substantial teaching experience at the university level, and must demonstrate an active program of research as well as a record of publications. They should have a significant research and scholarly profile in Canadian, Quebec, and/or Indigenous moving image arts studies. Additional expertise in curatorial and archival activities will be considered an asset for the position. Although classes are taught in English, a foundation in French would be considered a strong asset.

Application Requirements and Deadline

Applications should be submitted electronically to arth.film@concordia.ca on or before November 1, 2017. Submissions must consist of a letter of application; curriculum vitae; a statement of teaching philosophy and interests; a teaching dossier showing evidence of teaching effectiveness (including course syllabi, evaluations, and examples of student work); a research philosophy highlighting future research plans; detailed examples of completed/in-progress works; one example of published scholarly work (peer-reviewed article); and the names and contact information of three referees. Short-listed candidates will be required to provide an attestation of terminal degree. The departments regret that they cannot consider incomplete applications.
