The Gloria Steinem Endowed Chair in Media, Culture and Feminist Studies reflects and builds on the work and world view of Gloria Steinem, feminist, organizer, reporter, editor, and humanist. The chair inspires students and faculty at Rutgers, as well as the wider audience outside the university, to explore and reimagine the role of the media in serving democracy, with explicit focus on women and under-served communities. Connecting the worlds of academia and media, this chair will invite all students to come together across boundaries, to analyze, critique, and create media that reflect reality, and to provide facts, narratives, and new forms of storytelling that advance empathy, democracy, communal action, and innovative solutions.
This notable leader may come from the academic, media, and/or activist worlds and will engage with topics such as a) examining the relationship among media technologies, democracy, social change, gender and racial equality, and public policy as well as catalyzing and supporting others in the Rutgers and engaged communities; b) providing opportunities for students and faculty to learn from scholars, experts, and activists with frontline experience; c) developing classes and educational programs to enhance students’ understanding of how technology and media shape who we are; and d) guiding students toward critically analyzing important social and cultural questions and encouraging them to take action to address social inequalities.
The successful candidate will be the first Gloria Steinem Chair and therefore will play an important role in shaping the chair’s development, ensuring that its work is world-leading in envisioning its positive impact on gender equality in society. The successful applicant’s expertise and interest may be grounded in gender, communication, media, or information. He or she will be excited by students and teaching; a leader who will foster robust collaboration among related scholars and practitioners and build a hub for innovation in teaching and practice. We seek a leader who is creative, dynamic, and energetic, an effective and trusted communicator who is excited about collaborating and leading a diverse and dynamic team of colleagues and students, and about engaging in national and international arenas. The successful candidate will also have a demonstrable record of public engagement as a public intellectual, scholar, professional, and/or activist in related areas.
This is a two to three year rotating position. Responsibilities of the position include undergraduate and graduate teaching assignments in communication, media, information, and women studies; an active program of engagement in the candidate’s area of expertise and interest; initiating and facilitating events and collaborations (e.g., workshops, internships, symposia, guest lectures, projects, etc.); and communicating on behalf of the Gloria Steinem Endowed Chair with all relevant stakeholders. The expected start date for the position is September 2018.
