Below are a couple of open positions which might appeal to people who study dress and culture–and–people who dig California:

University of California, Santa Cruz has an opening in the History of Art and Visual Culture Department for a Department Manager. It’s an admin position and they say:

Under general direction of the Chair, the Department Manager provides administrative management support for the Department and executive assistance to the Chair and is responsible for department planning and program support; curriculum management; financial management; equipment, facilities and space coordination; staff and academic human resources support; development and general public information; general office administration; and oversight of the undergraduate and graduate programs. These duties require thorough knowledge of University, state and federal regulations, policies, guidelines, procedures and considerable judgment and tact in problem solving and decision-making.

The position is open until filled but the initial review date for apps was July 15 so apply quick!

California State University, Fullerton is looking to fill a tenure-track Assistant Professor of Anthropology in Cultural/Social Anthropology, with a specialty in Visual and Oral Culture.

The person should have specialties in visual and oral culture studies, which may include material culture and social memory; museum studies; ethnographic film and media; Native North American and/or immigrant cultural traditions of culture and communication; folklore; oral histories; or sociolinguistics.

They note:
Preference will be given to applicants specializing in one or more of the following geographic areas: Oceania, Southeast Asia, East Asia, Central Asia, Caribbean, Central America, North America, or Middle East.

They want to fill it for Fall 2009 but it seems to still be open so it’s worth checking out.
