Teaching Fellow(s), Film Programme, Fixed term,
School of English, Film, Theatre and Media Studies, Victoria University, New Zealand

Applications are invited for one or more fixed-term Teaching Fellows to teach 1-3 courses in 2014: one 200-level course on Film Histories and one 300-level course on Film Industries, Institutions and Cultures (both Trimester one; February-June) and one 200 level course (Film Theory) in Trimester two (July-November). The short-term contract(s) will cover either one or both of the trimesters. The appointed staff will be coordinating, lecturing, assessing, tutoring and supervising tutors, and working with colleagues in the programme. The successful applicant(s) will have a postgraduate qualification in film or a related area, and tertiary teaching experience will be an advantage. Applicants are encouraged to propose their own courses or areas of specialty that might fall within Victoria’s film courses. These positions are especially well-suited for new PhD graduates looking for teaching experience. Relocation costs will not be available for applicants.
Applicants should send a cover letter, cv, the name of three referees and sample course outlines of teaching experience to School Administrator Morna Lorden at <Morna.Lorden at vuw.ac.nz> The deadline to submit applications is September 20 but will remain open until we have filled the position(s).

Human Resources questions should be directed to Associate Professor Thierry Jutel, (thierry.jutel at vuw.ac.nz<mailto:thierry.jutel at vuw.ac.nz>), and all other questions about the position to Professor Kirsten Thompson, Programme Director (kirsten.thompson at vuw.ac.nz<mailto:kirsten.thompson at vuw.ac.nz>.)

Brief information about the courses are below, but candidates are also encouraged to propose other topics within their specialty research areas:

FILM 201 Critical Approaches to Film Studies: This course involves a survey of the significant theoretical approaches that inform Film Studies. Topics will vary from year to year but may include realism, formalism, semiotics, narratology, psychoanalysis, phenomenology, and/or postmodernism.
FILM 204 Film Histories: This course investigates a specific period or type of film history. It will situate cinema in a particular historical context and examine historiographical approaches in Film Studies.
FILM 307 Film Industries, Institutions, and Cultures: The course focuses on the field of film in its cultural, institutional and industrial contexts. This may include consideration of cinema as industry; the cultures and practices of film and related creative industries; or the role and influence of cultural policies and institutions.
