        Subject: 4 appointments in digital humanities at Connecticut

Digital Humanities and New Media positions at the University of Connecticut

The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences is dedicating four new faculty 
positions to the Digital Humanities and New Media cluster.  Three of the 
four positions will specialize in the Digital Humanities, and will 
encompass the use of technology in the study of text and the adaptation 
of literary criticism to account for the many new types of literary 
production made possible from new technology.  This cluster will enable 
the College to position its students and faculty at the leading edge of 
literary studies, preparing majors, especially those in the Department 
of English, exceptionally well for a changing economy and enabling 
faculty to compete for external grants supporting the creation of 
digital publications, editions, journals, and archives.  Additionally, a 
position in New Media with an academic home in the Department of 
Communication Sciences will serve as the link between the Digital 
Humanities cluster and a closely related cluster focused on Digital Media.
