The candidate will be responsible for developing and teaching large undergraduate lecture courses on the history of film and media, undergraduate classes for majors in art history and media studies, and graduate seminars for an innovative Ph.D program in art history, which includes a concentration in art practice and also enrolls MFA students in its courses.
