The Department of English at the University of Waterloo is accepting applications to its PhD program. Specifically, we have openings for two candidates whose research suits the context of the Critical Media Lab (CML). Students from any humanities or social science discipline with relevant experience are welcome to apply. The initial deadline is January 15, but we will consider outstanding applicants on a rolling basis until February 15.

The CML is a research-creation unit that generates speculative design, policy formation, and critical media theory. The lab recently moved to the vibrant Communitech Hub in Kitchener, where it consults with tech companies and startups on psychosocial, cultural, and design aspects of their products and services. The CML also hosts exhibitions and offers critical media workshops, interfacing directly with the local community and global partners.

The two chosen candidates would receive a full funding package comprised of research and teaching assistantships, in addition to generous funding from Mitacs and other sources to support projects related specifically to their research. This is a chance for graduate students in the humanities to intervene directly in the shaping of technoculture.

Please contact Professor Marcel O’Gorman if you are interested in applying, or view the application procedures and departmental information at https://uwaterloo.ca/english/considering-grad .
