The College of Arts & Letters of Stevens Institute of Technology has adjunct openings in the Program in Visual Arts & Technology for the following course:
HAR 461 – Art on the Internet
The Visual Art & Technology (VA&T) program seeks an adjunct professor to teach Art on the Internet. One of the many electives offered in the program, this course covers foundational knowledge of HTML & CSS, working with CMS platforms like WIX or Wordpress, experimenting with JS animation tools, as well as thinking critically about current cultural, social, and political dilemma’s intensified by pervasive network technology. Students will create works of art to be exclusively viewed through the internet including poetry, image-collage, animation, video journals, and other digital ephemera. This course can be taken by majors and non-majors but is intended to be a combined theory/practice course. Ideal candidates should be familiar with the technical know how of making art online as well as a rich understanding of contemporary discourses within net art.
