University College Cork: Postdoctoral Researcher in Digital Humanities with the CIPHER: Hip Hop Interpellation Team (2 yr)[]

  • Deadline: 31 May 2022
  • A Post-Doctoral Researcher post in Digital Humanities is available at the Department of Music in the School of Film, Music, and Theatre at University College Cork. The position is funded by the European Research Council and are associated with the research project CIPHER: Hip Hop Interpellation. This study of global hip hop knowledge flows will synergize ethnographic and digital humanities methods to examine how hip hop “unlocks the global through the local.” The researcher will work closely with the Principal Investigator, J. Griffith Rollefson, and a diverse, world-leading team of ethnographic researchers, with computational support from the Insight Centre for Data Analytics.
  • The successful candidate will work with a team of ethnographic researchers to develop a corpus of hip hop lyrics. S/he will develop thematic tags with the team to map the flows of interrelated hip hop archetypes or “gems of knowledge” that have emerged in different forms and in different languages around the world. With the support of UCC’s Insight Centre for Data Analytics, the candidate will build from this knowledge base an interactive public-facing searchable web application that maps these knowledge flows across time and space (with the potential of integrating and developing further computational methods—NLP, Machine Learning, Stylometry, etc.). This CIPHER Map will be a user-friendly interactive web-based world map complete with search functions, user submissions, and moderation. The successful candidate will show an ability to manage the data and visualization sides of the project.
  • In the Application Letter, candidates are expected to outline how their interests and skills align with the CIPHER project – namely, how they might attend to the particular challenges that websites like Genius.com, Shazam.com, WhoSampled.com, and others have approached in the last decade—and how they might further develop and extend those solutions.

Any news from Georgia? Have they scheduled campus/final-round interviews? -- https://twitter.com/lingdustin/status/1491850252688982017?s=20&t=8ePjRN2GArXu5vr-olJhug

12/28: Illinois is sending out invites mid/late January and going straight to campus visits for top candidates.- Does this mean these short list invites have already gone out? -> From what I've been told (I did not apply to this job, but know people on the committee), nothing has happened yet. They are skipping long list interviews and will send out invites to around 5 top candidates to come to campus. Aiming to send them out in mid-january.

Has anyone heard from Georgetown? - had zoom interview 12/13

Has anyone heard from University of South Carolina (Assistant Professor of Creole Language Studies)?
