Kennesaw State Job Search for Journalism Professor

Hello, followers.  The Department of Communication at Kennesaw State University, my home department and university, has a search underway for a journalism professor for its new journalism and citizen media track. Right now the two-year-old track has more than 100 majors and is growing quickly.

My Center for Sustainable Journalism works closely with the department. For example, recently we co-produced the Media Law in the Digital Age workshop with the Harvard Law Berkman Center for Internet & Society and two of our professors, Josh Azriel and Carolyn Carlson, were panelists and helped devise the workshop’s program. Afterward the Nieman Journalism Lab wrote that the 316-page report coming out of the workshop is: “as good a sweep of the contemporary world of media law as you’ll find. ..if you care about where online media is going, it’s a terrific resource.

I mention this because our Center, our department and Kennesaw State University provide lots of opportunities for national recognition. But don’t waste any time, the deadline for guarantee review of applications is Oct. 15.

Here is the job description:
