2 new positions at AU in Visual and Multimodal Anthropology, Deadline Oct. 30

TWO POSITIONS at Aarhus University: Associate Professor and Tenure-track Assistant Professor in VISUAL and MULTIMODAL ANTHROPOLOGY (DEADLINE for applications OCTOBER 30)

I am so happy to pass on these news – please share with all potential candidates!!

Six years ago, we established the EYE and MIND MSc track in visual anthropology in collaboration with Moesgaard Museum. From 2021, I plan to focus most of my time on a new 5-year ERC project, which will be hosted at the department. For this reason we are seeking candidates dedicated to continuing, developing and expanding the MSc track in new directions and who will take up the responsibility of coordinating the MSc track.

We are looking for candidates with strong academic contributions in the field and with solid skills in the use of audiovisual and multimodal methods of anthropological research, analysis and dissemination. Applicants with expertise in ethnographic filmmaking, exhibition-making or photography or with skills in the use of other forms of multimodal ethnography are welcome to apply. We hope to attract applicants with a desire to explore and experiment with the boundaries of visual and more-than-textual forms of anthropology, for instance via research in/through the use of social media or other emergent technologies, or through participatory design processes. We see this as a key element in a broader, and necessary, rethinking and redevelopment of the methodologies of the anthropological discipline and of the ways we can teach ethnographic methods in worlds increasingly saturated by audiovisual and multimodal forms of communication.
