[Commlist] International Call for Applications: Faculty Fellowship, Center for Advanced Research in Global Communication
Tue Feb 11 08:08:55 GMT 2020
INTERNATIONAL CALL FOR APPLICATIONS
Faculty Fellowships, Center for Advanced Research in Global
Communication, Annenberg School for Communication, University of
The Center for Advanced Research in Global Communication at the
Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Pennsylvania
invites applications for CARGC Faculty Fellowships. We have a very
limited number of these positions, reserved for full-time faculty
members from institutions other than the University of Pennsylvania,
which typically last one full semester, though other arrangements may be
possible. This is ideal for scholars seeking a base during funded
sabbaticals and research leaves.
The Center for Advanced Research in Global Communication (CARGC)
produces and promotes scholarly research on global communication and
public life. As an institute for advanced study dedicated to global
media studies, we revisit enduring questions and engage pressing matters
in geopolitics and communication. Our vision of “inclusive
globalization” recognizes plurality and inequality in global media,
politics, and culture. Our translocal approach fuses multidisciplinary
“area studies” knowledge with theory and methodology in the humanities
and social sciences. This synthesis of deep expertise and
interdisciplinary inquiry stimulates critical conversations about
entrenched and emerging communicative structures, practices, flows, and
struggles. We explore new ways of understanding and explaining the
world, including public scholarship, algorithmic culture, the arts,
multi-modal scholarship, and digital archives. With a core commitment to
the development of early career scholars worldwide, CARGC hosts
postdoctoral, doctoral, undergraduate, and faculty fellows who
collaborate in research groups, author CARGC Press publications, and
organize talks, lectures, symposia, conferences, and summer institutes.
CARGC Fellows work on their own research, and collaborate with staff and
postdoctoral, doctoral and undergraduate fellows. They present a CARGC
Colloquium and publish one CARGC Paper with CARGC Press. Fellows are
provided a workspace, computer and library access.
CARGC Fellows integrate primary sources and regional expertise in
theoretically inflected, historically informed, comparative, translocal
and transnational analyses of media, technology, geopolitics and
culture. Candidates challenging normative paradigms and incorporating
non-Western theories, sources and contexts, are especially welcome.
Ongoing research groups focus on theory and history in global media
studies, geopolitics and the popular, digital sovereignty, and radical
media and culture. We recommend that applicants review our website to
familiarize themselves with our mission and priorities:
This is a residential fellowship. CARGC strives to be an inclusive
community of scholars driven by intellectual curiosity and exchange, and
rooted in the life of the Annenberg School, the University of
Pennsylvania, and the city of Philadelphia . To foster mentoring and
collaboration at all levels, we expect fellows to be fully engaged in
the life of the center. Fellows are therefore expected to work at our
beautiful sixth floor premises—CARGC’s “World Headquarters”—on the Penn
campus at least four days a week during their stay.
Candidates should have least two years of post-PhD degree academic
experience and have an affiliation with a university or research
institute during the period of the fellowship.
