Submission Deadline: FRIDAY, AUGUST 13, 2021 (5pm)
 

For over four decades, TIFF has been committed to transforming the way people see the world through film. Central to this commitment is our pledge to preserve and promote Canada’s moving-image culture through educational initiatives and learning opportunities. TIFF is currently accepting applications for the 2021 Jeffrey and Sandra Lyons Canadian Film Scholarship, supporting the development of scholarship or research-creation that activates the archive. The award aims to:

  • increase access to the reference and archival collections of the Film Reference Library (FRL);
  • support research and research-creation that deepens knowledge about Canadian film and media;
  •  and strengthen the relationship between cultural and academic institutions in pursuit of knowledge mobilization.

TIFF encourages proposals from scholars, researcher-creators, and artists whose project would benefit from the unique collections of the FRL. Applications were previously accepted from MA, PhD, and post-doc students exclusively. In recognition of the interdisciplinary nature of film and media research, and the diversity of methodological approaches within the field, we have expanded the eligibility requirements to include those enrolled in any master’s program who are pursuing related research.

This Scholarship provides the recipient access to the extensive resources and collections of the FRL for one month between October 2021 and May 2022. On-site access to research materials will be conducted safely and in line with COVID-19 protocols. Digital research may be possible, depending on the Special Collection and the research material requested. The successful applicant will be provided with a stipend of $1,000 CAD, a designated office space, and access to the FRL’s collections in support of their research. Special Collections of particular interest include the archives of experimental filmmaker Mike Hoolboom; the Conquering Lion Pictures Archive of materials related to the works of filmmakers Clement Virgo and Damon D’Oliveira; the Deepa Mehta Archive; the Christopher Chapman archive; and the archives of score composer Christopher Dedrick.

The FRL is the ultimate free resource for filmmakers, students, researchers, screenwriters, and film and television professionals. A proud affiliate member of the International Federation of Film Archives (FIAF), the FRL is dedicated to the preservation of Canada’s cinematic history, maintaining extensive archival and research collections with a focus on Canadian cinema. The collection is a library and archive that includes a comprehensive reference collection on all aspects of filmmaking and cinema studies (books, periodicals, research files, audio-visual materials, photographs), and Special Collections representing over 100 industry figures in Canadian cinema.

Call for Applications – Postdoctoral Fellowship

“The Sociability of Sleep: Careful Design for Collective Conditions”
Université de Montréal and McGill University, Montreal, Canada
DEADLINE: June 15, 2021
 
We are seeking a postdoctoral fellow for a 10-month position to work on the new interdisciplinary research-creation project: The Sociability of Sleep. The candidate will work directly with Professors Aleksandra Kaminska (Director of the Bricolab, Université de Montréal, Communications) and Alanna Thain (Director of the Moving Image Research Lab, McGill University, English) and have the opportunity to work with project collaborators. These include researchers and practitioners from communication and media studies, media arts, cinema and performance, psychiatry, psychology, and clinical medicine across Montreal’s universities.
 
The Sociability of Sleep is funded through a special initiative to support interdisciplinary, experimental, and intensive projects. We explore exceptional and everyday experiences of sleep and its problems to generate new knowledge and empathies for sleep conditions, defined as a disordered and debilitating relation between sleep and wakefulness (including, but not limited to somnambulism, insomnia, narcolepsy, parasomnias, dreams and nightmares, sleep apnea, chronodiversity, etc.). Through collaboration between artists, scientists, and media studies scholars, we aim to generate novel sleep situations that make perceptible, and thus actionable, our key intuition: that sleep is much more social than it might seem. In sleep, we become radically vulnerable in a way that requires social forms of care: individuals are experts of their somatic experience, and yet access to the sleeping self relies on the perception of human and technological others. How might exploring a sleeper subjectivity—the quotidian ways we navigate time, space, ourselves, and others—help us rethink and reanimate the sociability of sleep itself?
 
We engage these questions by working on 1) developing interdisciplinary approaches to sleep research taking advantage of the tools, methods, and insights of arts, humanities and social sciences; 2) thinking critically and historically about technologies of sleep, including biometrics and sleep tracking apps; and 3) identifying, analysing, and producing artistic interventions into sleep in design, media, and performance, to see how they might enrich normative treatment of sleep conditions. Our approach is rooted in art-science experimentation, collaboration, prototyping, and various forms of “critical making” that integrate and engage with qualitative or quantitative research data. Over the two years of the project, we have planned a series of experimental events, including Sleep Salons, maker labs and prototyping workshops, artist residencies, pedagogical videos, a summer school, and a final exhibition.
 
We are looking for a critical and engaged researcher with an established interest and expertise in sleep. We are open to a variety of (inter)disciplinary backgrounds, including: media studies, communications, cinema studies, performance studies, science and technology studies, media arts, visual and sound arts, disability studies, design, urban planning, architecture, Indigenous studies, gender, feminist and sexuality studies, critical race studies, visual and material culture, information science, history of science, neuroscience, psychology, psychiatry, sociology, research-creation, curation, critical making, etc.
 
The fellow’s primary responsibilities will be to facilitate the collaborative activities across the team, while also developing their own research within the project. They will have the opportunity to be implicated in all aspects of the project with specific responsibilities to be determined according to their particular interests and profile. These may include curation, programming, medical or public outreach, publishing collaborations, workshop design, prototyping, exhibition design, etc. The position is best suited for someone with strong organizational and communication skills, experience working collaboratively, and an enthusiastic approach to interdisciplinary teams and research.
 
The fellow will have a workspace and access to equipment, mentoring, and support through the project headquarters at the Bricolab and the MIRL, as well as the opportunity to access partner resources and expertise, including the Topological Media Lab (Concordia), the Visualisation Laboratory and Screen (UdeM), Artefact Lab (UdeM), Hexagram, GRAFIM, the Dream & Nightmare Laboratory within the Center for Advanced Research in Sleep Medicine (UdeM, Hôpital du Sacré-Coeur), and the Sleep Lab (McGill Health University Centre), among others.
 
Eligibility: Candidates must have received a PhD within the past 5 years, or have a doctoral defence scheduled prior to Sept. 15, 2021.  Regardless of field or discpline, they must have demonstrated expertise in a relevant area of sleep-related research. The fellowship is open to both national and international scholars. Fluency in English is essential; working knowledge of French is an asset.
 
We welcome and encourage applications from racialized persons/visible minorities, women, Indigenous persons, persons with disabilities, ethnic minorities, and persons of minority sexual orientations and gender identities, as well as from all qualified candidates with the skills and knowledge to engage productively with diverse communities.
 
Start date and duration: The position is from Sept. 1, 2021 to June 2022, with the possibility of a renewal for a second 10-month term (July 2023-April 2023).
 
Salary: The salary is $35,000 CAD for 10 months, plus 17% in benefits. The fellow will also have access to a research stipend for materials and research dissemination.
 
TO APPLY
Documents required: 1) a current CV, 2) a cover letter describing your training, relevant research interests and a brief description of the work you would like to pursue in relation to the project including, if relevant, any anticipated material needs (max 2 pages), and 3) contact information for 2 referees.
 
Please send your application as a single PDF file to both a.kaminska@umontreal.ca and alanna.thain@mcgill.ca. Zoom interviews for shortlisted candidates will be held on June 17-18.
 
Deadline: June 15, 2021

CARNEGIE APPOINTMENT IN HUMANITIES AND COMPUTING – DALHOUSIE UNIVERSITY

 

The Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASS) at Dalhousie University, in cooperation with the Faculty of Computer Science (FCS) at Dalhousie University and the History of Science and Technology Program (HOST) at the University of King’s College, invite applications for a probationary, tenure-stream Assistant Professor level position in Humanities and Computing.

The successful candidate will teach 2 courses per year in FCS: 1 section each of CSCI 1800 (Computing and Society in History) and CSCI 1801 (Case Studies in Computing and Society) OR 2 sections of either class, with each section having an enrolment of up to 250 students. The faculty member will also have further annual teaching duties in FASS and/or HOST, to be confirmed at time of appointment based upon the teaching load of the chosen FASS home department. A 1 course release will be granted for serving as course director of CSCI 1800 and 1801. This position is a Carnegie appointment, meaning that the colleague will be a member of King’s Faculty rather than of the Dalhousie Faculty Association and will be expected to contribute to the administration of King’s as well as of Dalhousie. The appointment is intended to further a meaningful exchange of ideas and expertise in Humanities and Computing across King’s and Dalhousie, and to ensure that the new colleague has a strong community of support. The new colleague’s home for research purposes, including funding, grant application support, conference travel, etc., will be in FASS and King’s as per existing Carnegie appointment practices, but they will be encouraged to form research collaborations and connections with colleagues in the Faculty of Computer Science as well as with HOST and FASS colleagues. At Dalhousie, their main administrative home will be in FASS, but they may also be expected to contribute to administration within the Faculty of Computer Science: for example, by serving as a FASS representative on relevant FCS committees.

A record of, or demonstrated potential for, excellence in teaching and research in Humanities and Computing (broadly construed) and specific competency in areas relevant to the History of Science and Technology is required. A record of publication will be an asset. Applicants must have in hand, by the start date of the appointment, a Ph.D. in a field appropriate for appointment in a FASS department (see list at https://www.dal.ca/faculty/arts/departments.html).

Dalhousie University is committed to fostering a collegial culture grounded in diversity and inclusiveness. The university encourages applications from Indigenous persons, persons with a disability, racially visible persons, women, persons of a minority sexual orientation and/or gender identity, and all candidates who would contribute to the diversity of our community.

Position description

The Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinema, Concordia University, Montreal, is seeking candidates with expertise in LGBTQ+ and feminist approaches to film and media. Applicants must display a strong record of research and teaching across these areas, as well as a commitment to interdisciplinary inquiry. Candidates with experience teaching gender and sexuality as they intersect with issues of race, class, religion, nationality, ethnicity, and disability are especially encouraged to apply. The ideal candidate will value principles of equity, diversity and inclusion, and integrate these into their research, teaching, and service.

The successful candidate’s teaching assignment will include specialized courses on feminist and LGBTQ+ topics, alongside more general Film Studies classes. These courses will contribute to the FMST BFA degree as well as the new and growing BA Major in Interdisciplinary Studies in Sexuality, housed in the Simone de Beauvoir Institute. During the initial appointment, the successful candidate will normally be expected to teach up to six undergraduate lecture courses in Sexuality and Representation, Queer Cinema, Women and Film, and Approaches to Film Studies, and up to seven courses (21 credits) per annum if reappointed. Other responsibilities may include some committee and administrative work.

Qualifications and assets

Applicants should hold a PhD in Film, Media, Cultural Studies, or a related discipline(s), and have teaching experience at the university level that demonstrates commitment to principles of equity, diversity and inclusion. Applicants should also demonstrate success with teaching topics that reflect the current state of the field in gender and sexuality studies. Preference will be given to candidates who demonstrate a successful scholarly record in gender and sexuality studies, and with abilities in a range of approaches to the field. Prior experience indicating academic or community service with the same commitment to diversity and inclusivity will be a recognized strength. Although classes are taught in English, a foundation in French is an asset.

How to apply

Applications should be submitted electronically to filmstudies.cinema@concordia.ca on or before April 23, 2021. Submissions must clearly identify the job title (Limited Term Appointment in Critical Sexuality Studies in Film and Media) and position code (21_LTA_CINE_M2), and include a cover letter; curriculum vitae; a statement of teaching philosophy and interests; evidence of teaching effectiveness (including course syllabi and evaluations); one example of published scholarly work (a peer-reviewed article/chapter in the area of expertise relevant to this call); and the names and contact information of three referees. All inquiries regarding this position should be directed to Dr. Joshua Neves, Department Hiring Committee Chair, joshua.neves@concordia.ca. The appointment is expected to commence on August 1, 2021. Review of applications will begin soon after the position has closed, but will continue until the position is filled. Only short-listed candidates will be notified. The department regrets that it cannot consider incomplete applications.

Concordia University is strongly committed to building an equitable and inclusive community, and recognizes the importance of diversity in achieving excellence in teaching and research.

Required soft skills include outstanding writing and communication skills, a strong collaborative working style, good time management, and adaptability.

This Post-Doc position will include opportunities to produce publications, participate in conference presentations and directly contribute to content design for Archive/Counter-Archive’s hybrid publications.
