Faculty Opening in Critical Race/Ethnicity and Communication
University of Washington

The University of Washington seeks a tenure-track assistant professor in
the area of race/ethnicity and communication in the Department of
Communication. Our graduate and undergraduate programs are founded on
principles of intellectual and cultural pluralism, interdisciplinary
theorizing, diverse methods of inquiry, public scholarship and community
engagement, and innovation through collaboration among faculty and
students. Building upon these core principles, Department faculty have
identified seven areas of emphasis -- communication and culture;
international communication; political communication; rhetoric and
critical studies; social interaction; technology and society; and
journalism. New faculty are expected to contribute significantly to at
least one of these areas.

Candidates should have interests in race/ethnicity and communication,
defined broadly to include face-to-face, on-line, mediated, or
mass-mediated contexts. Particular focus may include critical race
the social construction of race in relationship to issues of power; the
shifting nature of conceptualizations of race; the enactment or
challenging of racial conceptions through media representations, public
discourse, or rhetoric; the ways in which cultural ideologies are
constructed by, are reflective of, and/or contribute to communication
about race; transnational or postcolonial analyses of race; anti-racist
inter-cultural discourses; linkages among race and other "differences"
such as gender or class; racialization, nationalism and diaspora; or the
creation of identity (e.g., political, social) within groups that have
been historically marginalized.

The Department of Communication has plans for an interdisciplinary
on communication and issues of difference; our new colleague will play a
central part in shaping that initiative.  The Department of
was recognized in 2002-03 as a campus leader in the retention of

University of Washington has a substantial institutional commitment to
these issues.

Faculty are expected to conduct research, teach 4 courses during a
three-quarter academic year, and supervise graduate students at the
master's and doctoral levels. Applicants must demonstrate a potential
excellence in research and teaching and the ability to contribute to the
Department's curriculum. Experience mentoring students of
under-represented groups would be highly valued. Candidates must have
earned or be close to completion of a Ph.D. by September 2005, in a
