Eric Gordon's Promotion Dossier
I am pleased to be standing for promotion to full professor at Emerson College during the 2016-2017 academic year. The following narrative details my research, teaching, and service to the department and college as well as my commitment to putting media theory into action. I am a scholar, an activist, a teacher and a media practitioner who is focused on enhancing the mechanisms in which marginalized people engage with civic and public institutions. I am committed to research and design projects that directly benefit students and community partners. I have devoted a considerable amount of time in the last six years to building and maintaining applied research models and institutional structures within a liberal arts college that accommodate external local and global partnerships at scale.
