Offer accepted: 2/21

NOTES:

  • The email address for applications is a typo. Correct address is burnistonjc@appstate.edu
  • The addition of a scheduled campus interview on 12/21 is a little dubious seeing that the committee has yet to do a round of interviews at MLA.  But, hey, stranger things have happened.  
  • Even more confusing to see 2 campus interviews scheduled now. Anyone have an idea about how many MLA interviews there are? 
  • I think they decided to only do Skype interviews. (x2)
  • I'm going to call B.S. on the report of 3 campus interviews being scheduled.  It looks like someone is abusing the anonymity of the wiki and causing undue stress for the people who have had Skype sessions.  Not cool.  
  • Several different people posting in several different locations on the same day, just to cause "undue stress" for others? Not likely (meaning, there's no reasonable logic for assuming the information above is inaccurate).
  • Agreed with the previous comment. My guess is App State wants to get candidates in to beat those interviewing at MLA to getting out an offer. I've seen this before, esp. with my colleagues in rhet/comp, where the competition is particularly stiff. Then again, I've also a university go back to the contestant pool after three campus visits, so anything can happen still. Good luck, all.
  • Four on-campus interviews?  Interesting.

  • 10/16 When preparing application materials last month, I asked the chair whether they wanted names of references or actual letters. He said names of references would suffice.

  • Thank you! But my potential panic wasn't about the legitimacy of the search but the disappearance of my applicaiton from the system. I'm wondering if other applicants can still log in and see their applications.
  • You may want to contact the department. I just checked and my application is still there and reads as "In Progress."
  • Yikes. Thanks. 
  • I just checked and mine reads as "in progress" as well.  Did you get a confirmation number when you submitted your application?  If so, maybe you could contact HR to see if it can be tracked that way?
  • Same issue here, looks like my application has disappeared from the New School careers portal. Who did you end up contacting about this?
  • I emailed the department chair but haven't heard anything yet.
  • I suggest emailing the department senior secretary Karen Noyes.

  • UNCW also posted a desperation call on 12/10 for a lecturer position to cover three courses in the Spring.  Perhaps the "campus visit scheduling" that is underway has to do with filling that immediate need.  If not, something very strange is going on with a hiring committee reviewing applications, conducting preliminary interviews, and moving to campus visits all within the span of two weeks.

NOTES:

  • Just today my application to this position showed up "Incomplete" on Interfolio with letters newly requested. Did I just miss this the first time or was this a "request for additional materials?"
  • I just checked Interfolio and see a newly "Incomplete" status for this application as well, but haven't received an email asking for letters.  Has anyone received such an email?  
  • Yes, I received an email asking for letters. Maybe they are coming in staggered one at a time?
  • Received a request for letters 11/23. My area is AfAm + US media/Hollywood, so maybe the requests were staggered depending on the joint appointment (French, English, AfAm)? 
  • I received an email too, late in the day on Friday. I think it is the next stage of the selection process, they basically added this new requirement and activated the folder to accept the letters. Once you upload the letters it will show as complete again.
  • So does anyone have an application status that DIDN'T change to "Incomplete" yesterday?
  • I also got a letter; wrote a response and got a very nice note almost immediately.  Though I know that doesn't add clarity to whether this is a long list or if everyone got a letter request.
  • (11/16) My interfolio application lists me as incomplete and needing to file letters too, but I didn't get an email.  According to the Yale office, only those people whose candidacy is advancing have been contacted; it seems as if everyone's Interfolio application is now incomplete though.  The person in the office wasn't categorical, but I think if you didn't get an email you're done.  A bit messy, no?
  • (11/17) Same here, incomplete interfolio application but no email. I guess everyone received it? Out of curiosity to those who received emails, what field of specialization did you identify?
  • (11/17) ^^ History and Theory of Media
  • Did anyone get a timeline for the next stage?
  • So has anyone else received NEITHER a formal rejection email NOR a request for letters at this point?  Am assuming I've been wiki-jected, but the quirkiness of this process is keeping faint hopes alive...
  • I had assumed I was out of the running based on the information here (although I missed that rejection emails went out). Today, on 12/2, I just got a request for letters of recommendation and a research statement. Weird weird weird. (My field: History and Theory of Media) - x2
  • I noticed on interfolio that there was a request for a research statement, but I was only asked for letters.  Was anyone else asked for a research statement?  Maybe it is a junior/senior thing? REPLY: You're right, the email specified only letters; I uploaded the research statement anyway, since it was there on the interfolio page and I had one burning a hole in my pocket.

All adjunct faculty are expected to have a Ph.D. or terminal degree in the area of their teaching and must be approved by the appropriate academic unit at NYU.  In some instances, significant professional expertise and experience in a relevant field may be suitable. The salary will be based on equivalent and appropriate adjunct faculty rates for the course. The lecturing role includes all preparation, delivery, and marking.

Course description: Expressive Culture: Film CORE-UA 9750 Film and American Politics: Introduces students to the formal study of film while exploring the changing popular vision of American politics that is seen in films about Washington, D.C. From the populism of the Depression era films of Frank Capra to post-WWII paranoia, the cynical films of the post-Watergate era and more recent depictions of media-constructed realities, we explore the ways film reflects and shapes our understanding of contemporary and historical American political culture. At the same time, students learn how filmmakers create meaning through the building blocks of editing and cinematography and the manipulation of audience expectations of genres, stars, and “Hollywood endings.”

Appointment to this position will be for a term of one year, with the possibility of renewal for an additional year, beginning fall 2016, and will carry the rank of Visiting Assistant Professor.

The incumbent will teach a total of five courses in the history and theory of cinema and media. The field is open, though we especially value work in (1) global cinema/media, with a special emphasis on a non-Western cinema and (2) early/silent cinema.

Cinema, modern culture’s primary art form, is central to the media traditions and industries that structure contemporary society, and Oberlin College’s Cinema Studies Program is committed to exploring cinema in its critical, creative, historical, cultural, technological, and comparative media contexts. On the idea that to genuinely understand cinema and other media one must create media forms as well as analyze them, the Program integrates the critical study and production of cinema and related media, and majors may take both hands-on media production as well as critical studies courses.

The new appointment’s classes will be integral core courses that help define the major and reflect the Program’s direction. To nurture our strong commitment to exploring cinema within the broader historical, theoretical, and cultural matrix of Media Studies, we seek to hire someone whose work emphasizes comparisons among different media forms, examines cinema and other media in terms of their technological foundations and cultural implications, and studies media in the historical context of the centuries- old, ongoing relationship between technological innovation and artistic practice. Ideally, the incumbent will offer advanced courses on technology and media practices surrounding the birth of cinema, along with introductory courses in cinema and media studies.

The incumbent will teach two introductory classes (What is Media? and Introduction to the Advanced Study of Cinema), and some combination of three intermediate and advanced courses in the historical and/or theoretical relations among media, technology, and culture in his or her area of specialization. Candidates must have a Ph.D. (in hand or expected by September 2016) and demonstrate interest and potential excellence in undergraduate teaching. Successful teaching experience at the college level is desirable.

To apply, all application materials must be submitted electronically through Oberlin's employment website to  https://jobs.oberlin.edu . A complete application will be comprised of 1) a Cover Letter that includes an articulation of the applicant's teaching philosophy; 2) a Curriculum Vitae; 3) Unofficial transcript; and, 4) Letters of Reference from three (3) recommenders.  By providing these letters you agree that we may contact your references. Please note that our system does not work with Interfolio. You will need to submit a valid email address for each of your recommenders; the system will email each recommender to request a letter of reference.

Review of applications will begin on March 1, 2016 and will continue until the position is filled. Completed applications received by the February 25, 2016 deadline will be guaranteed full consideration.  

Questions about the position can be addressed to: </span>grace.an@oberlin.edu or Grace An, Director, Cinema Studies Program, at 440-775-6657.

Oberlin College is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer with a strong institutional commitment to the development of a climate that supports equality of opportunity and respect of differences based on gender, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, and gender identity and expression.  Oberlin was the first coeducational institution to grant bachelor's degrees to women and historically has been a leader in the education of African-Americans; the college was also among the first to prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation.  In that spirit, we are particularly interested in receiving applications from individuals who would contribute to the diversity of our faculty.
