We are looking for a Taiwan Arts Program Administrator to design and direct a new Taiwan Arts Program. As part of our new MOFA grant, the new Taiwan Arts Program under the Taiwan Studies Program will offer national events open to the public focused on Taiwan arts and culture. We define arts and culture broadly, including high culture, popular culture, folk culture, cultural history, indigenous culture and contemporary cultural movements in Taiwan.
The Taiwan Arts Program Administrator will have an opportunity to direct and grow an ambitious new initiative at the intersection of contemporary culture, higher education, and academic studies of Taiwan. The Administrator will be in charge of finding and engaging culture partners, such as film directors, literary authors, and dance troupes to perform or speak for US audiences, and will have significant ability to shape the program.
As part of the role, the Program Administrator will also offer one academic course on Taiwan per year on an arts or humanities field. This could include, for example, literature, poetry, cultural studies, art history, performance studies, film and media studies, cultural anthropology, etc. The ideal candidate will have academic training, preferably a PhD in one of these fields.
The position will remain open until filled. For more details and to apply, please see the job listing in UW Human Resources.
