Coventry University is seeking to appoint a Professor of Immersive Media 
within its dynamic Centre for Postdigital Cultures, Faculty of Arts and 
Humanities. Appointment to this position offers an opportunity to lead 
on the Centre’s research on digital media and humanities. It also allows 
the successful candidate to provide academic leadership in an area of 
critical importance to the Faculty of Arts and Humanities and cement its 
growing international reputation and ambitious research agenda.

The Centre for Postdigital Cultures (CPC), established in 2017, builds 
on the strong and distinctive track-record of scholars at Coventry 
University encompassing a range of disciplines in the arts and 
humanities. Led by Professor Gary Hall, the CPC brings together media 
theorists, practitioners, activists and artists to explore how 
developments in postdigital cultures can enable 21st century society 
respond to the challenges it faces in relation to the digital at a 
global, national and local level.

The CPC is diverse, with its members hailing from more than 14 different 
countries, and takes an innovative stance in exploring (post)digital 
phenomena. It is our position that the “digital” can no longer be 
understood as a separate domain of culture. If we actually examine the 
digital - rather than taking it for granted we already know what it 
means - we see that today digital information processing is present in 
every aspect of our lives. This includes our global communication, 
entertainment, education, energy, banking, health, transport, 
manufacturing, food, and water-supply systems. Attention therefore needs 
to turn from “the digital”, to the various overlapping processes and 
infrastructures that shape and organise the digital, and that the 
digital helps to shape and organise in turn. The CPC investigates such 
enmeshed digital models of culture and society for the 21st century 
“postdigital” world. Put another way, what we are interested in is how 
we are born out of our relation to media, rather than seeing the media 
simply as an external instrument or tool, the latter being the classical 
Aristotelian view that has dominated our understanding of media 
technologies to date.

The successful candidate is expected to have an international reputation 
with a successful record of accomplishment of high-quality research 
outputs, income generation and public engagement. Candidates with an 
expertise in immersive media and a specialism in one or more of the 
following areas are especially encouraged to apply: decentralised 
networks; AI and data-driven humanities; experimental 
humanities/post-humanities; emergent postcapitalist economies.

The closing date for applications: Sunday 16th February 2020
