One of my hopes was to be able to go back to Indiana after getting the Ph.D. And that’s becoming a reality. I was recently hired as the new assistant professor of journalism at Indiana University Southeast in New Albany.

The journalism program is fairly small, with just two full-time faculty (including me), but there are hopes to grow in future years. In addition to teaching, I’ll also be advising the student newspaper, The Horizon.

The job is tenure-track, with a 3/3 load. That means that each semester, I’ll teach three classes (one of which is advising the newspaper) and will have one course release for research. This is exactly the kind of job I wanted. I get to work with students on creating a publication. I get to continue some of my research. And I  get to work with a growing program interested in preparing students for a changing media environment.

We’re probably going to be living in Louisville, which is just across the Ohio River from New Albany.

Now, to find a job for Renée. We’re pretty optimistic. If anyone knows of anything, send us a shout.
