Welcome to the Department of Modern Culture and Media

 

 

Modern Culture and Media is committed to the study of media in the context of the broader examination of modern cultural and social formations. Our curriculum proposes a distinctive subject matter, stresses comparative analysis and theoretical reflection, and highlights the integration of theory and practice, creative thought and critical production. In research and teaching at both the graduate and undergraduate level, MCM combines the analysis of diverse texts — visual and verbal, literary and historical, theoretical and popular, imaginative and archival — with the study of contemporary theories of representation and cultural production and creative practice in a range of media. Through studying MCM, students will become critically sophisticated and knowledgeable about the theory, history, and analysis of media and cultural forms. They will also learn to produce innovative work — whether in theory, media practice, or historical scholarship — that interrogates and transforms conventional understandings of these forms.

JOB POSTING

MCM seeks a Media Archivist to maintain the department's collection of 16mm films, DVDs, and digital media and to teach courses related to media archiving. 

Brown University's Department of Modern Culture and Media is committed to research and teaching that crosses traditional disciplinary boundaries: we span the usual separation of creative practice and critical theory, as well as the division between the humanities, arts, and social sciences. At the same time, the modern media of film, video, television, photography, sound technologies, and digital media lie at the core of the program. 

The Media Archivist is expected to maintain, organize, grow, and diversify the department's collection of 16mm films, DVDs, and digital media; to facilitate the use of the Archive for courses and events; and to offer one course an academic year to support students' understanding of media and archival formations as well as to develop skills in media archiving, curation, conservation, and exhibition.
