The candidate should engage at least two of these three substantive areas. By Judaic studies we mean theoretical and methodological examinations of Judaic culture across the diaspora including spaces both within and beyond the United States. Attention to Jewish and Judaic epistemologies and ontologies as represented through textual case analysis or performance studies (i.e., film, theater, popular culture, mediated texts, rhetorical documents). Particular issues such as Judaic philosophy and political ideology, Judaic community-building and narrative, Israeli media representations and public memory, and Judaic intersections among race/ethnicity, gender identity and expression, sexualities, ability, class, geography, citizenship, national origin, and age are preferred. The teaching load for this position is 2/2 that includes courses in Communication and Multimedia Studies and, depending on area of specialization, the Department of Theatre, as well.
