CULTURAL STUDIES AND MEDIA STUDIES POSTS AT THE UNIVERSITY OF EAST ANGLIA, NORWICH, UK

Five jobs are up for grabs at the University of East Anglia (UEA). None of them are specifically in post-structuralism but some of the media/culture jobs may be of interest to poststructuralists and ALL the posts are fairly open as to sub-field specialism. “Cultural Politics” broadly conceived is certainly an area from which we would be pleased to receive applications.
