THE MEL HOPPENHEIM SCHOOL OF CINEMA

FACULTY OF FINE ARTS, CONCORDIA UNIVERSITY

Tenure-Track Faculty Position in Critical Sexuality Studies in Film and Media

Concordia University’s Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinema in the Faculty of Fine Arts invites applications for a full-time, tenure-track faculty position in Critical Sexuality Studies in Film and Media to begin August 1, 2019.


Position Description

Film Studies at Concordia University is an internationally renowned leader in scholarship and curriculum devoted to the study of sexuality, gender, and queer film and media. Having participated as a co-founder and co-leader of the Minor in Interdisciplinary Studies in Sexuality since its establishment in 1999, the program has drawn hundreds of students to Montreal over the past twenty years. Integral to Film Studies and its undergraduate and graduate programs are pioneering courses that address the role of cinema and media in sexuality and queer study. Notably, Concordia hosted the first undergraduate class in North America devoted to the study of HIV as a cultural and political phenomenon and actively maintains the Queer Media Database (www.mediaqueer.ca).

We are seeking candidates with expertise in LGBTQ+ approaches to film and media. Applicants must display an outstanding record of research and teaching across these areas, as well as a strong commitment to interdisciplinary inquiry and the support of diverse communities. The ideal candidate will value intersectionality and integrate this into their research, teaching, and service.  


Responsibilities

The successful candidate will be expected to teach specialized courses on LGBTQ+ topics alongside more general Film Studies classes. Their courses will contribute to the new BA Major in Interdisciplinary Studies in Sexuality, housed in the Simone de Beauvoir Institute. Other responsibilities include the supervision of MA and PhD theses, serving on graduate committees, in addition to performing suitable administrative duties. Over time, the selected candidate will actively embrace program stewardship and engage in committee work at the department and Faculty levels.


Qualifications

Applicants should hold a PhD in Film, Media, Cultural Studies, or a related discipline(s), have substantial teaching experience at the university level, and demonstrate an active program of research exemplified by a record of publications across the relevant fields. We require a candidate with the ability to mentor students at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Prior experience of service and commitment to diversity and inclusivity will stand as a high priority. Although classes are taught in English, a foundation in French is deemed an asset.


About the Faculty and the School of Cinema

With over 4,000 students, faculty, and staff, the Faculty of Fine Arts is among the five largest art and design schools in North America. Montréal, our home, is exceptional: with 170,000 university students, a vibrant cultural scene, and the most affordable tuition in Canada, the city ranks among the top ten best destinations in the world for tertiary education. While supporting a significant Anglophone population, Montréal is the second largest French-speaking city after Paris. North America’s number one choice for international events and festivals, Montréal was the first metropolis to be designated a UNESCO City of Design by the Global Alliance for Cultural Diversity. Nestled in the heart of this pulsing city, embraced by a dynamic research university, the Faculty of Fine Arts benefits from extraordinary access to brilliant practitioners, thriving venues, cross-cultural perspectives, and an extensive network of outstanding facilities for research and production.

Taking advantage of our place within the rich fabric of a research university and our long history as one of the premiere sites in Canada for the study and creation of the arts and arts-based scholarship, the Faculty of Fine Arts is currently engaged in a transformative moment in which pedagogical, conceptual, theoretical, and material practices find resonance with a significant diversity of approaches. In our university community, live performance, historical research, methodological innovation, theoretical scholarship, technical experimentation, skills-based production, community fieldwork, as well as traditional and digital fabrication are equally valued. In addition to curricular experimentation, the formation of significant research centres and external partnerships in the Faculty of Fine Arts have enriched opportunities for faculty and students.

The Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinema—Canada’s largest university-based centre for the study of film animation, film production and film studies—is highly regarded around the world. The School hosts programs in Film Studies, Film Production, and Film Animation. Among the degrees offered are a BFA in Film Studies, a BFA in Art History and Film Studies, MAs in Film Studies and Cinematic Arts, and a PhD in Film and Moving Image Studies that attracts a diverse and international student body.

Poste de professeur menant à la permanence avec double affectation
Art canadien des images en mouvement

Le Département d’histoire de l’art et l’École de cinéma Mel-Hoppenheim de la Faculté des beaux- arts de l’Université Concordia lancent un appel de candidatures afin de pourvoir un poste de professeur en art canadien des images en mouvement. Il s’agit d’un emploi à temps plein avec double affectation et menant à la permanence. La date prévue d’entrée en fonction est le 1er août 2018.

Contexte
Comptant plus de 4 000 étudiants, professeurs et employés, la Faculté des beaux-arts de l’Université Concordia figure parmi les cinq plus grandes écoles d’arts et de design en Amérique du Nord. Accueillant bon an mal an quelque 170 000 étudiants et étudiantes, qui y profitent des droits de scolarité les plus bas au Canada, Montréal est en constante effervescence culturelle. D’ailleurs, la métropole québécoise figure au palmarès des dix meilleures destinations dans le monde au chapitre de l’enseignement supérieur. Bien qu’elle abrite une importante population anglophone, elle est la deuxième métropole francophone du globe après Paris. La toute première à obtenir le titre de ville UNESCO de design de la part de l’Alliance mondiale pour la diversité culturelle, Montréal est un lieu de prédilection des amateurs d’événements et de festivals internationaux. Blottie au cœur de cette cité dynamique, partie prenante d’une université au profil de recherche vigoureux, la Faculté des beaux-arts bénéficie d’un accès extraordinaire à de brillants praticiens, à des lieux de diffusion florissants, à de fascinantes perspectives transculturelles ainsi qu’à un vaste réseau d’installations de recherche et de production de grande qualité.

Faculté des beaux-arts, Département d’histoire de l’art et École de cinéma Mel- Hoppenheim
Tablant sur la place qu’elle occupe au sein d’une université de recherche de haut calibre, la Faculté des beaux-arts est reconnue depuis longtemps comme l’un des plus importants centres du Canada voués aux études, à la création et à l’élargissement des connaissances en arts visuels. Par ailleurs, elle vit actuellement un élan transformateur où les pratiques pédagogiques, conceptuelles, théoriques et matérielles trouvent écho dans une importante diversité d’approches. Ici, la performance sur scène, la recherche historique, l’innovation méthodologique, l’érudition théorique, l’expérimentation technique, la production axée sur l’acquisition de compétences, le travail de terrain au sein de la communauté et les méthodes de fabrication, tant classiques que numériques, sont tous également valorisés. Outre les occasions d’expérimentation curriculaire, la constitution de centres de recherche d’importance ainsi que de partenariats externes à la Faculté des beaux-arts a contribué à élargir le champ des possibilités pour les membres du corps professoral et de l’effectif étudiant. En 2018, la faculté inaugurera une nouvelle banque de médias regroupant des archives de films, de vidéos et d’images liées à l’histoire de l’art et aux études cinématographiques. L’installation comprendra également des salles de séminaire, un espace de repos ainsi que des postes de visionnement pour les étudiants et les professeurs. Elle offrira ainsi un grand potentiel pour leurs futures initiatives et activités de recherche.

Le Département d’histoire de l’art joue un rôle vital tant au chapitre de l’étude et de la recherche sur l’histoire de l’art que des cadres théoriques, de la culture visuelle et matérielle, de la conservation, de l’éducation et de l’engagement communautaire. Chef de file canadien dans son domaine, le département offre des programmes de premier cycle complets en histoire de l’art, en histoire de l’art et études cinématographiques, et en histoire de l’art et arts plastiques. Il propose par ailleurs une maîtrise en histoire de l’art et un doctorat interuniversitaire, conjointement avec trois autres établissements. En outre, le département privilégie une grande diversité d’approches dans ses curriculums et activités de recherche, et encourage ses étudiants à contribuer activement à la discipline tout au long de leur formation. Ceux-ci évoluent dans un environnement collaboratif axé depuis toujours sur l’érudition avant-gardiste et sur l’enseignement actif et novateur. Les résultats d’apprentissage d’intérêt public insufflent une volonté tant chez les étudiants que les membres de la communauté universitaire de progresser dans un but commun.

L’École de cinéma Mel-Hoppenheim − le plus grand centre universitaire canadien spécialisé en cinéma d’animation, en production cinématographique et en études cinématographiques − jouit d’une prestigieuse réputation internationale. Elle présente l’avantage de faire partie intégrante de la Faculté des beaux-arts de l’Université Concordia, un milieu transdisciplinaire extrêmement dynamique doté d’installations à la fine pointe de la technologie, où professeurs et étudiants évoluent dans un cadre artistique et culturel propice à la recherche et à l’étude. Le corps enseignant compte 26 professeurs à temps plein et une équipe de professeurs à temps partiel talentueux qui enseignent à plus de 800 étudiants. L’école propose des programmes en production cinématographique, en cinéma d’animation et en études cinématographiques menant à différents diplômes : B. Bx-arts en études cinématographiques, B. Bx-arts en histoire de l’art et en études cinématographiques, M. Bx-arts en études cinématographiques, et Ph. D. en études cinématographiques et images en mouvement. Nos douze professeurs à temps plein en études cinématographiques mènent des recherches actives dans une diversité de sous-domaines. En outre, notre programme de doctorat attire des étudiants étrangers de haut calibre, en plus de compter parmi les meilleurs du genre dans le monde.

La majeure en histoire de l’art et études cinématographiques permet l’exploration de ces deux domaines en tant que disciplines savantes. Axé sur la recherche et la rédaction, le programme recrute les étudiants les plus talentueux et représente un secteur de croissance dans les deux départements. Il permet de développer une compréhension interdisciplinaire des arts visuels et audiovisuels ainsi que des discours critiques et théoriques relatifs à chaque discipline. Depuis la création de la majeure en 2002, on a ainsi assisté à une croissance des convergences des pratiques cinématographiques expérimentales et des œuvres filmiques, ainsi que des difficultés et stratégies liées à la conservation, à l’archivage et à la préservation. Plus que jamais, ce programme hybride est tout indiqué pour former les étudiants dans le contexte élargi des images en mouvement et des institutions, artistes et pratiques d’archivage connexes.

Description du poste
Nous recherchons des candidats ayant une expertise en art des images en mouvement et en culture visuelle. « Art des images en mouvement » est un terme général qui englobe le film expérimental, la vidéo, les installations, le cinéma élargi ainsi que les autres formes d’art numérique – chaque discipline ayant une histoire et un avenir distincts et interreliés. Les candidats qui concentrent leurs recherches sur la conservation, l’archivage et l’historiographie sont les bienvenus. La préférence sera accordée à ceux et celles qui se penchent en particulier sur toute forme d’art des images en mouvement et de culture visuelle, et démontrent une expertise dans les médias canadiens, québécois ou autochtones avec un programme de recherche axé sur l’un ou plusieurs de ces domaines.

Responsabilités
La personne retenue sera affiliée à un département principal, déterminé en fonction de son champ d’expertise. Comme elle sera appelée à donner des cours de tronc commun tant en histoire de l’art qu’en études cinématographiques, elle devra cependant faire preuve d’aisance dans les deux disciplines. Elle participera par ailleurs à la gestion du programme de B. Bx-arts en histoire de l’art et en études cinématographiques, notamment en révisant le curriculum, en coordonnant le calendrier et en encadrant les étudiants. À ce titre, elle saura démontrer l’importance de la recherche et de la pédagogie collaboratives et interdisciplinaires en histoire de l’art et en études cinématographiques pour le succès continu du programme. Elle devra en outre superviser des étudiants des cycles supérieurs dans l’une ou l’autre des disciplines, ou les deux; siéger à des comités de supervision des cycles supérieurs; participer activement à la régie du programme et du département; exécuter des tâches administratives; et prendre part à des travaux de comités départementaux et facultaires. Seront considérées comme des atouts les activités antérieures ayant permis au candidat d’affirmer ses qualités de chef, de participer à des comités et de démontrer son attachement au pluralisme.

Qualifications
Le candidat doit être titulaire d’un Ph. D. en histoire de l’art, en études cinématographiques ou dans un domaine connexe; posséder une expérience considérable de l’enseignement universitaire; montrer qu’il est activement engagé dans un programme de recherche; posséder un bon dossier de publications; afficher un excellent profil d’enseignement et de recherche dans l’art des images en mouvement canadien, québécois et autochtone; et, de préférence, faire état de connaissances additionnelles en conservation et en archivage. Bien que les cours se donnent en anglais, une connaissance élémentaire du français constitue un atout important.

Exigences et date limite
Le dossier de candidature doit être transmis par voie électronique à arth.film@concordia.ca au plus tard le 1er novembre 2017. Pour poser votre candidature, veuillez nous faire parvenir les documents suivants : lettre de présentation; curriculum vitæ; énoncé de vos champs d’intérêt et de votre philosophie d’enseignement; preuve de vos aptitudes en enseignement – plans de cours, exemples d’œuvres et de travaux d’étudiants et évaluations à l’appui; énoncé de votre philosophie de recherche explicitant votre plan de recherche à venir; exemples détaillés de travaux en cours ou accomplis; un exemple de travail d’érudition publié (article évalué par un comité de lecture); nom et coordonnées de trois répondants. Si votre candidature est retenue, vous devrez présenter une preuve d’obtention de diplôme terminal. Le département se verra dans l’obligation de rejeter les candidatures incomplètes.

Toute question concernant le poste peut être transmise par courriel à l’adresse arth.film@concordia.ca, à l’attention de : Elaine Paterson (Ph. D.), directrice du Département d’histoire de l’art, et Catherine Russell, directrice de l’École de cinéma Mel-Hoppenheim

Cross-Appointed Tenure-Track Faculty Position in
Canadian Moving Image Arts Studies

Concordia University’s Department of Art History and the Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinema in the Faculty of Fine Arts invite applications for a full-time, cross-appointed tenure-track faculty position in Canadian Moving Image Arts Studies to begin August 1, 2018.

Context
With over 4,000 students, faculty, and staff, the Faculty of Fine Arts is among the five largest art and design schools in North America. Montréal, our home, is exceptional: with 170,000 university students, a vibrant cultural scene, and the most affordable tuition in Canada, the city ranks among the top ten best destinations in the world for tertiary education. While supporting a significant Anglophone population, Montréal is the second largest French-speaking city after Paris. North America’s number one choice for international events and festivals, Montréal was the first metropolis to be designated a UNESCO City of Design by the Global Alliance for Cultural Diversity. Nestled in the heart of this pulsing city, embraced by a dynamic research university, the Faculty of Fine Arts benefits from extraordinary access to brilliant practitioners, thriving venues, cross-cultural perspectives, and an extensive network of outstanding facilities for research and production.

Faculty and Departments
Taking advantage of our place within the rich fabric of a research university and our long history as one of the premiere sites in Canada for the study and creation of the arts and arts-based scholarship, the Faculty of Fine Arts is currently engaged in a transformative moment in which pedagogical, conceptual, theoretical, and material practices find resonance with a significant diversity of approaches. In our university community, live performance, historical research, methodological innovation, theoretical scholarship, technical experimentation, skills-based production, community fieldwork, as well as traditional and digital fabrication are equally valued. In addition to curricular experimentation, the formation of significant research centres and external partnerships in the Faculty of Fine Arts have enriched opportunities for faculty and students. In 2018 a new Media Bank will open in the Faculty, in which the combined film, video, and image archives of Art History and Film Studies will be housed. This facility will include seminar rooms, breakout space, as well as viewing stations available to students and faculty, and offers great potential for future research initiatives and activities.

The Department of Art History is a vital environment for the study and research of art’s histories, theoretical frameworks, visual and material culture, curatorial practice, education and community engagement. As one of Canada’s leading programs, the Department of Art History offers full undergraduate degree programs in Art History, Art History and Film Studies, and Art History and Studio Art, as well as an MA in Art History and an interuniversity PhD, offered collaboratively with three other institutions. Our curriculum and research reflect a diversity of approaches, and we encourage students to become active contributors to the discipline throughout their studies. The Department of Art History is a mutually supportive environment with a longstanding tradition of ground-breaking scholarship and where teaching is active and innovative, with public learning outcomes often providing a means to invite a sense of shared purpose among our student body and larger university community.

The Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinema—Canada’s largest university-based centre for the study of film animation, film production and film studies—is highly regarded around the world. The School has the distinct advantage of being situated in Concordia’s vibrant Faculty of Fine Arts, where faculty and students enjoy numerous cross-disciplinary opportunities, state-of-the-art resources and facilities, and a rich artistic and cultural context for research and study. Currently, the School’s faculty complement includes 26 full-time professors and a talented cadre of part-time instructors, teaching more than 800 students. The School hosts programs in Film Production, Film Animation, and Film Studies. Among the degrees offered are a BFA in Film Studies, a BFA in Art History and Film Studies, an MA in Film Studies, and a PhD in Film and Moving Image Studies. Our 12 full-time Film Studies faculty members are active scholars in a diversity of subfields, and our PhD program attracts high- caliber international students, and is among the top Film Studies graduate programs in the world.

Since its creation in 2002, the Major in Art History and Film Studies has offered a course of study at the intersection between art history and film studies as scholarly disciplines. A research and writing- intensive program, it attracts top students and is a growth area for both departments. It is a program in which students develop an interdisciplinary understanding of the visual and audio-visual arts, as well as the critical and theoretical discourses pertaining to each discipline. Since its inception, intersections between experimental film practices and moving image gallery works have increased in current moving image arts practice, as have the challenges and strategies of curating, archiving, and preservation. More than ever, this hybrid program is well situated to train students in an expanded history of the moving image, and the associated institutions, artists, and archival practices.

Position Description
We are seeking candidates with expertise in moving image arts and visual culture. Moving Image Arts is an umbrella term that includes experimental film, video, installation arts, and expanded cinema, along with other modes of digital arts—all of which have distinct and interrelated histories and futures. We welcome candidates whose research encompasses curating, archiving and historiography. Preference will be given to applicants with a scholarly record focused on any modality of moving image arts and visual culture, including a demonstrated expertise in Canadian, Quebec, and/or Indigenous Media with a research program grounded in one or more of these areas.

Responsibilities
The successful cross-appointed candidate’s primary department will depend on their field of expertise, but since they will be expected to teach core undergraduate courses in Art History and Film Studies, they must be comfortable within both disciplinary milieux. Responsibilities will also include the stewardship of the BFA in Art History and Film Studies, including review of curriculum, timetable co-ordination, and mentoring students. In this role, they should demonstrate the ways collaborative, interdisciplinary research and pedagogy in Art History and Film Studies are central to the continued success of this program. The candidate should be prepared to supervise graduate students in either Art History or Film Studies, or both, and serve on graduate supervisory committees, as well as actively embrace program and department stewardship, perform administrative duties and engage in committee work at the department and Faculty levels. Prior activities demonstrating leadership, service, and commitment to diversity will be an asset.

Qualifications
Applicants should hold a PhD in either Art History or Film Studies, or a related discipline(s), have substantial teaching experience at the university level, and must demonstrate an active program of research as well as a record of publications. They should have a significant research and scholarly profile in Canadian, Quebec, and/or Indigenous moving image arts studies. Additional expertise in curatorial and archival activities will be considered an asset for the position. Although classes are taught in English, a foundation in French would be considered a strong asset.

Application Requirements and Deadline
Applications should be submitted electronically to arth.film@concordia.ca on or before November 1, 2017. Submissions must consist of a letter of application; curriculum vitae; a statement of teaching philosophy and interests; a teaching dossier showing evidence of teaching effectiveness (including course syllabi, evaluations, and examples of student work); a research philosophy highlighting future research plans; detailed examples of completed/in-progress works; one example of published scholarly work (peer-reviewed article); and the names and contact information of three referees. Short-listed candidates will be required to provide an attestation of terminal degree. The departments regret that they cannot consider incomplete applications.

All inquiries regarding this position should be sent to arth.film@concordia.ca and directed to: Dr. Elaine Paterson, Chair, Department of Art History and Dr. Catherine Russell, Chair, Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinema
