Position Announcement: Instructor of Speech Communication at University of South Carolina
The Program in Speech Communication and Rhetoric, a division of the Department of English at the University of South Carolina, invites applications for an Instructor to teach at the undergraduate level. We seek an experienced teacher whose background has prepared her or him for our new general education course in communicating moral issues. The 4/4 teaching load may also include courses in public speaking, business communication, or argumentation and debate. This is a nine-month appointment, beginning August 16, 2016 and ending May 15, 2017, with the possibility of annual renewal contingent upon satisfactory performance, university needs, and the availability of funds. The salary is $42,000 plus standard university benefits. Application for promotion to the rank of Senior Instructor is possible after six consecutive years as a regular, full-time Instructor.
Candidates must have completed an M.A. in Communication or an equivalent field by August 1, 2016 and have a minimum of two years’ experience teaching public speaking at the college level, with evidence of teaching effectiveness. We strongly prefer candidates with a Ph.D. in Communication with more than two years’ experience teaching public speaking and a background in communication and ethical or moral inquiry.
To apply, visit http://uscjobs.sc.edu/ and search postings for Requisition Number 010463. A complete application for this position will include a letter of application, curriculum vitae including teaching experience, and contact information for three references who can speak to the candidate's teaching. Finalists will be contacted for additional information, including evidence of teaching effectiveness. Review of applications will begin on June 20, 2016 and continue until the position is filled. Inquiries may be addressed to the program director and committee chair, Pat Gehrke at gehrke@mailbox.sc.edu.
The University of South Carolina’s main campus is located in the state capital, close to mountains and coast. The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching has designated the University as one of only 40 public institutions with “very high research activity”.  The Carnegie Foundation also lists USC as having strong community engagement. The University has over 31,000 students on the main campus, more than 300 degree programs, and a nationally-ranked library system that includes one of the nation’s largest public film archives. Columbia, the capital of South Carolina, is the center of an increasingly sophisticated greater metropolitan area with a population of over 800,000.
The University of South Carolina is an affirmative action, equal opportunity employer.  Minorities and women are encouraged to apply. The University of South Carolina does not discriminate in educational or employment opportunities or decisions for qualified persons on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, sexual orientation, or veteran status.

Submissions for the RoC special issue on microhistories of communication are rolling in and look fantastic. Two of the best things about being editor of RoC:
1. Reading a large amount of interesting and exciting work.
2. Helping some of that work come to print and to other readers.

The power issue is also coming together nicely, showing some great insights into the discipline's treatment of power and some opportunities for cross-speciality conversations on power.

If you missed issue 13.4, go back and check out the work on organizational pedagogy, creativity, ludic anxiety, and the history of the Australian Journal of Communication.

And keep the great work coming!

Hey, South Carolinians! Fun and excitement this Saturday at your local polling place. Remember, as the SC election commis says: "S.C. does not have registration by party. The Presidential Primary is open to all registered S.C.
voters."

No democratic primary, but EVERY registered voter in SC can vote in the republican primary. Find your local polling place at http://www.scvotes.org/ and help the GOP pick their poison. (No write-in ballots, sorry.)

Not sure who you should vote for? Check out this current candidate ad:

This place absolutely reeks of cigarette smoke! The hallways, the elevator, even our nonsmoking room smelled so bad I almost slept in the car. Unless you love the smell of an ashtray, I suggest finding anyplace else to stay.
