We are seeking an emerging scholar to enrich and advance our program in Screen and Cultural Studies. The Screen and Cultural Studies Program at the University of Melbourne is an innovative and distinctive formation that fosters research and teaching in both Screen Studies and Cultural Studies, as well as the critical intersections between these disciplines. This particular role will teach into the Cultural Studies stream.

Our Cultural Studies stream focuses critical attention on how cultural life is being transformed by three key developments: the intensified mobility of people and cultures in globalization; the impact of new media technologies in everyday life; and the far-reaching environmental and social aftermaths of industrial modernization. These developments produce a number of effects that shape contemporary cultures globally: the reconfiguration of older forms of collective social life into multiple, transnationally inter-connected publics; the transformation of ethnic, gendered, sexual and other identities in the context of cultural superdiversity; unprecedented levels of cultural complexity in public cultures, in everyday life, and in workplaces; and the new cultural centrality of environmental risk.
