SUMMARY OF RESPONSIBILITIES
The Photography major focuses on developing critically engaged and contextually aware photographic work.

Candidates should be able to teach photography and related media at multiple levels, from Foundation to Graduate Studies, and will be expected to contribute to developing curriculum in an institution that is committed to the interrelation of theory and practice. The successful candidate will join a rigorous and committed team of Art faculty that also includes the following curriculum areas: Ceramics, Painting, Illustration, Drawing, Print Media, Sculpture + Expanded Practices, New Media + Sound Arts, Performance, Interdisciplinary Visual Art and Praxis, as well as minors in Curatorial Practices and Art + Text. Candidates should be equally fluent in contemporary photography discourse and studio practice and in balancing the conceptual, aesthetic and technical demands of the discipline. Additionally, faculty are expected to participate in portfolio reviews, upper-level critiques, provide graduate student supervision, serve on administrative committees, engage in research, and to be an active member of the Emily Carr community. The successful candidate will have an active artistic research practice and a substantial exhibition and/or publication record with a solid, demonstrable foundation in photographic practice, an established career profile and be active in national and international contexts.
Dialogue and critique are important to the SPE mission.
