Culture, Aesthetics and Media specialising in Interactive Media
SPECIFIC SUBJECT DESCRIPTION
In an era of converging and participatory modes of production and consumption of media and arts, we need new combinations of research on ‘culture’, ‘aesthetics’ and ‘media’. We have therefore created the transdisciplinary subject area of Culture, Aesthetics and Media – a field of applied humanistic arts and media research that unites mediated aesthetic expressions and aesthetic dimensions of media technologies with questions about how media and art are produced, communicated and used. In order to improve research on production strategies, innovative processes, new audience behaviour as well as the art and media objects themselves, Culture, Aesthetics and Media requires a combination of specialists and generalists within humanistic arts and media research.
The Department of Cultural Sciences aims at developing its collaboration with research in Digital Humanities and Game Studies at the University. We are now seeking a researcher and teacher with interactive media expertise in one or more of the following areas: art history/visual studies, film studies, game studies, media studies and musicology.
