Faculty position in Experimental Media, begins September 2009. Review  
of complete applications begins January 6, 2009.

We seek a media artist with demonstrated experience teaching  
experimental moving image practices, and cultural and critical  
theories of media.  The successful candidate will have a strong  
commitment to teaching and will be able to contribute to an intensive  
media program that emphasizes the theory and practice of experimental,  
non-fiction and/or documentary production.  Because Evergreen  
organizes its curriculum through interdisciplinary coordinated studies  
(rather than through departments and courses) the ideal candidate will  
demonstrate engagement with one or more disciplines outside of the  
media arts through creative work, teaching or research.

We seek candidates with critical expertise and production skills in at  
least three of the following areas: experimental video, installation  
or performance, multi-media production, animation, sound design, and  
new technologies (such as circuit bending, Max/MSP/Jitter, or Arduino  
interfacing).  We require experience teaching visual analysis, media  
literacy, media history and theory and/or art history and theory, and  
the ability to work effectively with students on writing.  We are  
particularly interested in candidates who are exploring the  
implications of a globalized media culture, including internet or  
media activism, mass media and popular culture, and multicultural  
media arts.

This position is designed for a working artist and teacher with an MFA  
or other terminal degree and an active exhibition record.

Evergreen faculty members on teaching teams work closely with students  
and enjoy a high degree of freedom to determine the subject matter,  
pace, emphasis, classroom strategies and modes of evaluation.   
Candidates with experience teaching with faculty from disciplines  
outside the humanities are particularly encouraged to apply.  We also  
encourage applicants who have had experience teaching and/or working  
with students from underrepresented populations.

This is a Regular Faculty position, eligible for continuing  
appointment after two, three-year renewable contracts.  All  
requirements for this position must be completed by the end of  
academic year 2008-09.  Review of complete applications begins January  
6, 2009 and will continue until finalists are selected.


Evergreen is a public liberal arts college located in Olympia,  
Washington, 60 miles south of Seattle and 100 miles north of Portland.  
We emphasize integrated interdisciplinary study and team-teaching  
throughout the undergraduate curriculum and in three graduate  
programs. Teaching at Evergreen allows faculty members to exercise  
broad-ranging intellectual curiosity and to work collaboratively with  
faculty colleagues and students formulating interdisciplinary  
questions and inquiry.
