September 30, 1997 NON-FICTION PRODUCTION POSITION The University of

Assistant Professor in the area of Non-fiction Media Production. We

ethnographic, interactive and traditional approaches to a wide range
of issues. This new position entails teaching within an established
film and video production curriculum and, while the specialization
would be in the area of non-fiction, it is required that the candidate
demonstrate qualifications to teach at all skill levels, in both 16mm
film and video, and to both undergraduate and graduate students.
Although attention to scholarship and theoretical issues surrounding
non-fiction production is expected, promotion and tenure will be based
on demonstrated teaching excellence and the exhibition record of the
candidate's creative work in media production. MFA or equivalent is
required. The Departmental facility that supports teaching and
research in media production includes complete 16mm and Betacam camera
packages, three soundstages, complete non-linear and 1" video editing
suites, 16mm flatbeds, 16mm animation and optical printing, and a
24-track audio studio with a digital audio workstation. In addition,
the University of Iowa has several facilities to support research in
computer-based media. The Department offers a BA, MA, and MFA in Film
and Video Production, and the PhD in Film Studies, Media Studies,
Rhetorical Studies, and Interpersonal and Small Group Communication.

in science and technology. Topics will range anywhere from the history
of information codes to parthenogenesis, from the recycling of human
tissue to household gadgets and digital composition. For this project,
we are looking for contributors with a background in science and
technology who are willing and able to cast - tabloid-compatible,
phenomenological, politically and culturally relevant - light on their
fields of research and development. Possible journalistic approaches
range from essay/report formats (6.000 - 10.000 chars) to more
experiental, opinion-oriented sections (4.000 - 5.000 chars). Fees are
far from extraordinary, but enough to make the effort worthwhile.
Submission can be made in English or German language. Contact:

Sep 01, 1997 The Stockholm Electronic Arts Award, organized annually
by the Stockholm Electronic Music Festival, is now in its 7th year. It
is one of the few competitions in the world focussing specifically on
electroacoustic music. It was originally conceived as a competition
with two categories, "pure" electroacoustic music (EAM) and EAM
combined with electronic visual media. Hence the name "Electronic Arts
Award". Entries are judged by an international jury, appointed by the
organizing committee of the Festival. A preliminary selection is made
by the programme committee of the Festival functioning as a
"first-level" jury. The works they select are then copied and
distributed to the international jury, giving them at least several
weeks to peruse the entries before coming to Stockholm to cast their
final vote. All entries remain anonymous for the jury members until
after they have made their final decision. Only one prize (per
category) is awarded, but the jury can give mentions to other works.
The prize is in money. The winning composer is also given the
opportunity to work in the studios of Electroacoustic Music in Sweden
(EMS/SRK). The prize is about $2000. Contact:

Oct 01, 1997 The Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars
seeks to commemorate through its residential fellowship program both
the scholarly depth and the public concerns of Woodrow Wilson. As
President Wilson wrote, "The man who has the time, the discrimination,
and the sagacity to collect and comprehend the principal facts, and
the man who must act upon them, must draw near to one another and feel
that they are engaged in a common enterprise." The Center awards
approximately 35 fellowships annually in an international competition
to individuals with outstanding project proposals representing the
entire range of scholarship, with a strong emphasis on the humanities
and social sciences. The Center especially welcomes projects that
transcend narrow specialties. STIPEND. The Woodrow Wilson Center
seeks to follow the principle of no gain/no loss in terms of a
Fellow's previous year's salary. However, the combination of limited
funds and a ceiling established by the U.S. Congress makes it
essential for most applicants to seek supplementary sources of
funding: sabbatical support, other fellowships, or foundation grants.
In no case can the Center's stipend exceed $62,000; the average yearly
stipend is approximately $43,000. In addition, the Center provides
travel expenses and 75% of health insurance premiums for Fellows,
their spouses, and their dependent children. FURTHER INFORMATION AND
APPLICATION FORMS MAY BE OBTAINED FROM:
