  • has anybody heard from Concordia? I'm guessing they moved on, but closure is always nice!
  • Nope, nothing!
  • Nothing here either. Given the amount of material they requested (way more than any other position in the field this year) they might be taking some time to parse applications. Fingers crossed!
  • Nothing here, either... But I have a friend who interviewed there in mid-December--i.e., no MLA interview and straight to a campus visit of sorts--so it seems like this has come and gone [posted ~12/29]

Connecticut College (CT) - TT Asst. Professor - Global Anglophone/Postcolonial Literatures - SKYPE INTERVIEW STAGEEdit

The Department of English invites applications for a tenure-track position in Global Anglophone/Postcolonial Literatures at the rank of Assistant Professor, beginning on July 1, 2016. Possible specializations include urban, environmental, gender, queer, migration, transnational, diaspora or translation studies; an additional consideration is the ability to contribute to the College's interdisciplinary programs (such as Africana Studies and Global Islamic Studies) and centers for interdisciplinary scholarship (the Goodwin-Niering Center for the Environment, the Toor-Cummings Center for International Studies and the Liberal Arts, the Holleran Center for Community Action and Public Policy, the Ammerman Center for Arts and Technology, and the Center for the Comparative Study of Race and Ethnicity). The teaching load includes courses in postcolonial and Anglophone literatures at all levels; introductory courses required for the major, which all members of the department teach; and courses contributing to the College's Connections program. ABD required, Ph.D. preferred by August 2016.

The successful candidate will join an English department with an established commitment to the study of English as a global language. We seek not simply to "cover" additional literatures with this position (although we do require our majors to take advanced courses in World literatures in English as well as British and U.S. literatures), but to unsettle the notion of center and periphery in literary study and to expose the role of language and literature in creating and maintaining power structures. With existing ties to many of the interdisciplinary programs and centers listed above, the English Department at Connecticut College is a flexible, transformative, and active influence on campus; we hope to continue this legacy with a new tenure-track colleague in Global Anglophone/Postcolonial Literatures.

Connecticut College is a private, highly selective institution with a demonstrated commitment to outstanding faculty teaching and research. Recognizing that intellectual vitality and diversity are inseparable, the College has embarked on a significantly successful initiative to diversify its faculty, student body and curriculum. The College seeks creative scholars excited about working in a liberal arts setting, with its strong focus on engaged teaching, participation in shared governance, and active involvement in an institution-wide advancement of diversity. AA/EEO

Tenure-track faculty members normally teach a 3-2 load. In addition to providing ongoing support for teaching and research, the College offers the following resources for pre-tenured faculty: a 2-2 teaching load in the first year, a research fund in the first two years, and a semester's sabbatical (at full salary) after a successful third-year review. Further information regarding support for faculty research and teaching may be found at: https://www.conncoll.edu/employment/faculty-resources/. Further information about the English department may be found at: http://www.conncoll.edu/academics/majors-departments-programs/departments/english/.

Please submit a curriculum vitae, a letter of application, a sample syllabus, a 20-page writing sample, and three recent letters of recommendation to Interfolio at: http://apply.interfolio.com/32338. Priority will be given to applications received by November 2, 2015. Questions may be addressed to Lina Perkins Wilder, Chair, Department of English, at lina.wilder@conncoll.edu.

With nineteen academic departments and eight interdisciplinary programs, the College is the liberal arts core of the University. A great strength of the College is its faculty of approximately 140 full-time teacher-scholars. The College offers 31 undergraduate majors and 34 undergraduate minors; six graduate degrees are offered in Education, Counselor Education, and Creative Writing. Every undergraduate major requires a senior research project, allowing students the opportunity to design and carry out independent research under faculty mentorship. Our academic programs are shaped by the values of social justice and civic responsibility. All of our courses and programs of study promote engaged learning, whereby students create connections between the classroom or lab and the local, regional, and global community.
