Media Arts & Culture Program

Occidental College, Los Angeles


Position open for instructor of Narrative Practices in Time-Based Media


Send a brief cover letter and resume to Broderick Fox at as soon as possible. Candidates will be considered until the position has been filled.


Occidental’s Media Arts and Culture Program seeks a part-time faculty member for a one-year Narrative Practices in Time-Based Media appointment, helping to deepen the screenwriting trajectory of our major. We are seeking candidates with both critical (Ph.D. or M.A. in critical studies or equivalent field) and professional creative experiences writing for screen cultures.


The reason we call the courses “narrative practices” and not screenwriting outright is rooted in our aim to expand students’ notions of storytelling for the screen beyond their typical imaginings of the screenwriter. We want students to explore and develop the particular propensities of writing for screen cultures rather than via other modes of narrative expression (prose, playwriting, etc.).


Inherent in the liberal arts history/theory/praxis model we seek to cultivate writers who are not only versed in structure and character development, but who ground their creative imagining in the global histories, politics, and cultural ideologies of screen genres and who actively seek to extend or challenge these traditions through their own innovative storytelling.


The position would entail teaching three courses and mentoring senior thesis students writing feature-length screenplays. The candidate would teach our ArtM 220 Narrative Practices introductory course in the fall and another section of the 220 introductory class, along with a section of ArtM 320 Advanced Narrative Practices, our advanced course, in the spring.


The candidate would also mentor our senior screenwriting thesis students over the course of the year as they critically and historically contextualize and write feature screenplays. We will likely have 3-4 screenwriting seniors in 2013-2014.
