         Subject: Endowed chair in digital humanities


Dartmouth College is pleased to announce the creation of a senior
position in the Digital Humanities for a newly endowed Chair in
innovative fields. The successful applicant should be committed to
inter-disciplinary collaboration, technological innovation, and
creating curricular links within the Humanities and across divisions.
The position offers the opportunity to define a new area of research
and teaching, building on Dartmouth's existing strengths in the
Humanities and Computing. The field of research and teaching is
open; we seek candidates with practical and/or theoretical expertise
in one or several of the following disciplines in the Arts and the
Humanities: visual arts, screen studies, new media, performance arts,
music and sound, film, TV/Video, and literature. Expertise in
computer hardware and/or software will be welcome but is not
essential. The role of the Chair in Digital Humanities is intended to
be broad in scope, potentially incorporating current or future
initiatives in cyber-culture and the creation, performance, and
critical study of digital arts, including a consideration of the
socio-political and theoretical implications of new artistic
technologies. The endowment for this Chair provides additional funds
for projects involving research and teaching in the Digital
Humanities. The successful candidate will be located in a single
Dartmouth department or program, or jointly appointed to one or more
departments or programs. Considerable flexibility exists regarding
joint appointments, which may cross departmental or even divisional
boundaries. One of the most diverse institutions of higher education
in New England, Dartmouth College is an equal opportunity/
affirmative action employer and has a strong commitment to diversity.
In that spirit, we are particularly interested in receiving
applications from a broad spectrum of people, including women,
persons of color, persons with disabilities, and veterans. The Search
Committee will begin reviewing applications after October 1, 2006.

Applications will be considered until the position is filled. Please
send letter of application, CV, and the names of three references
