    Professor of Culture and Technology, Director of MA in Digital Humanities

    The University of Virginia's newly established Media Studies Program seeks
    applicants for a senior, chaired Professor of Culture and Technology. We
    are seeking an energetic, imaginative, dedicated scholar and teacher with a
    commitment to expanding our understanding of the relations between culture
    and technology, preferably with an interest in digital media and
    information technology. Successful candidates should have a distinguished
    record of publication and teaching. This person will serve as Director of a
    Master's degree in Digital Humanities (beginning Fall 2002) and develop
    undergraduate courses in the area of culture, technology, and media from a
    disciplinary perspective (history, sociology, psychology, history of
    science, cultural studies, anthropology, literature, information science,
    philosophy, or other field). Teaching load is three courses per year (one
    course relief for tenure of Directorship, normal load is 2/2), with other
    responsibilities normally associated with a faculty appointment. All
    appointments in Media Studies have a tenure home in a discipline-based
    department, usually within the College of Arts and Sciences. Immediate
    review of applications will begin December 15, 2001 and continue until
    filled. Anticipated start date for the appointment is August 25, 2002.

    Interested candidates should send a cover letter, resume, indication of
    teaching interests, list of references, and one representative publication to:
