Last year we started a hiring process for two new professorships in the Department of Digital Humanities, which was unfortunately interrupted in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are delighted to announce that we will be resuming search for these two professorial posts, plus an additional Senior Lecturer/Lecturer position in Digital Culture and Society. As before if there are any enquiries, please do get in touch!
The Department of Digital Humanities at King’s College London is looking for two full Professors and one Senior Lecturer/Lecturer to join us. They will contribute to developing research, teaching and collaborations to facilitate “critical inquiry with and about the digital”. The new posts are as follows:
- Professor of Digital Technology in Culture and Society
- Professor of Critical Digital Practice
- Senior Lecturer/ Lecturer in Digital Culture and Society
King’s College London has a long tradition of research in the digital humanities, going back to the early 1970s. Building on the department’s expertise in digital information management, digital research methods and humanities computing from the early 1990s, it has grown to become a world leader in research on digital humanities, culture and society. Following several hiring rounds in the past few years, the department has a diverse community of scholars, undergraduates and graduate students exploring the role of digital technology in society from a humanities perspective, informed by a variety of different fields. This includes our BA in Digital Culture, MA Programmes in Big Data in Culture & Society, Digital Culture & Society and Digital Asset & Media Management, as well as MA/PhD research degrees in Digital Humanities. The two hires will join at an exciting time for the department and will help to shape its future direction and activities.
