NOTES:

  • Deadline was extended to Sept 30
  • Request for additonal materials, 11/13
  • I heard they made an offer to an ABD, 4/9/14
  • Correct. Although technically an ABD, the hire has been teaching for quite a while now.
  • Yes, an ABD with teaching experience who was also offered a postdoc 2013-14. Very qualified but lacking the PhD and significant [peer-reviewed] publications. I'm noticing a trend of ABD or TT-lateral moves, the rest are relegated to steerage. I wish I had thought of the strategy of keeping my degree "fresh" as well. My comment was mainly about the absurdities of the market.
  • I don't think in this particular case the "freshness" of the degree was the rationale behind the hire. My speculation is that the research agenda proposed and general profile spoke to the interests of the committee. Now, who frames architectural history discourse, and how this framing defines the market and what committees are looking for is a much more productive approach to understanding hires. This is my very personal and limited opinion.
  • Offer made but not accepted. Timothy Hyde, Associate Professor at the GSD, has accepted the position.

Applicants must be capable of teaching a wide range of courses (large lecture to seminar) at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The History of Art and Visual Culture Department faculty support the investigation of art and visual culture across a wide variety of theoretical perspectives in the cultures of Africa, the Americas, Asia, Europe, the Mediterranean, and the Pacific Islands. The campus is especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community through their research, teaching, and service. The History of Art and Visual Culture Department is in the Division of the Arts, which also includes Departments of Art, Film and Digital Media, Music, Theater Arts, and the M.F.A.

The campus operates on a schedule of three 11-week quarters per academic year. In accordance with the department’s workload policy, faculty members are required to offer the equivalent of 5 five-unit courses per year (which normally means teaching 4 courses over three quarters and carrying out other academic and service responsibilities), advise and mentor students, actively engage in research, and undertake administrative service for the department, affiliated college, and university. The ability to contribute significantly to graduate education and the mentoring of graduate students is highly desirable. We have a strong undergraduate major and a young, dynamic Ph.D. program. Under the leadership of an energetic dean, our division is enjoying faculty growth, significant fundraising successes, new research centers, and is planning for a new Institute of the Arts and Sciences, which is one of the top four initiatives in the university’s comprehensive campaign.

Rejection: Email 12/20 (it stated that there were 109 applications).

  • I wonder if the reference to "senior scholars" was accidental?  ---> I wondered that too ---> It did not look accidental to me. --> Please elaboarate; I was contacted neither with an interview nor with a rejection and am not a senior scholar.  --> In the rejection, they wrote, "The search committee reviewed 109 applications from an exceptionally talented group of senior scholars..." I assume they meant junior scholars since it is a tenure-track position, but who knows? But unfortunately I wouldn't get your hopes up if you haven't heard anything. It looks like they conducted Skype interviews a couple weeks ago so have likely contacted their favored candidates.

Rejection: I received the same e-mail . The e-mail mentioned the overwhelming task of "selecting finalists whose areas of expertise provided a good fit with our existing faculty."

NOTES:

  • is there anyone else out there with no rejection letter and no request for an interview, or am i just a logistical mistake that fell through the cracks of academic adminstration? oh boy, the existential questioning this process stimulates... ps. people interviewing for Santa Cruz, i'm sorry i didn't provide you with a real update. i am only a self-indulgent full of entitlement academic in pursuit of camaraderie and some answers...
  • I also did not get an interview or a rejection, but am not holding out hope on this one. Probably either an administrative oversight or, more likely, a pool of people they are keeping in the mix just in case one of the first round interviews does not work out. 
  • I'm a faculty member in the department at UC Santa Cruz--we have an automated system that is set up to email applicants not chosen for interviews to notify them of our decision.  Based on the comments above, I assume that we have a glitch.  We made an offer that was accepted.  I apologize for the lack of notifications to some applicants.  I know how stressful it is to be on the market and am sorry for having inadvertantly added to your anxiety.

NOTES:

did anyone else who interviewed at CAA *not* receive an email stating that the position was filled?

I got the email stating that the position had been filled (obviously without a campus visit). I would check your spam mail - they have no reason to play games with candidates. It sounds as though the outgoing doyen hand-picked her successor - this has happened to me before. It is annoying to spend over $600 on an interview when the search appears to be a cover in the end. American searches are winding up just as rigged as the Italian ones these days! (though I could always be wrong - lack of transparency tends to fog the view.).

According the department's website, campus visits are happening this week (3/4). Maybe there was some miscommunication between the dean's office and the department--searches have so many moving parts.

The three finalists are listed on the department calendar: http://apps.carleton.edu/curricular/arts/events/?start_date=2014-03-03&no_search=1 (3/5/14)

Kind of a terribly run search; never heard a word from them. At all. Is this what we've come to: competent, solid candidates don't even get the favor of an acknowledgement? Pretty lame.

NOTES:

  • FYI this is a spousal job. Inside candidate is wife of new hire in South Asian art history.
  • Is this your own personal speculation, or coming from someone actually connected with the search? 
  • The t.t. S. Asianist got the department to secure a job for his wife, a modern S. Asian art historian, when he was hired. She was a lecturer in the department for a year and is now on a fellowship. UCB has to do a national search, but it is not legit.
  • Just a thought: what this would mean is that Berkeley, land of fiscal mismanagement, extreme budget cuts, programmatic cuts and no phones in faculty offices, somehow managed to secure a spousal hire for a) a newly minted PhD, b) whose spouse works in essentially the same field (i.e., S. Asia), c) in a market that has enjoyed a relative glut of excellent S. Asianists in the past several years, and d) in a overall academic environment that has seen spousal hires for all but the most elite senior hires essentially disappear. I have no knowledge of the specific situation, and would not deny that stacked searches leading to inside hires do occur. But as I've said repeatedly on this forum regarding rumors of rigged searches and inside hires (including searches in which I was the supposed insider, as well as ones in which I was an external finalist), I would urge those of you interested in this job not to give this rumor too much credence. However well intentioned the original poster is or how well informed they believe themselves to be, Berkeley is under no obligation to run a search to complete a spousal hire -- I would assume that this is legit unless the University somehow cuts the interview process obviously short on the way to hiring the spouse (i.e., no campus visits). In other words: apply, apply, apply.
  • Word.
  • In terms of UCB having to do a national search, I'm not sure. Lauren Kroiz was hired last year as an assistant prof. and I don't believe that Berkeley ran an Americanist search. I'm not entirely sure what happened there (she's a stellar scholar of course) but if she was hired without a search then I am sure Berkeley could do the same if they intended to make a spousal hire.
  • Indeed. Their Late Antique/Early Christian specialist was also a spousal hire (husband's in a different department), who was brought on with no search. I can't think of any place (especially a highly attractive school like Berkeley) that lets beginning assistant professors demand a t.t. place for their spouse in the same department -- and then conducts a nationwide search (which are hugely expensive, time-consuming enterprises) to cover it up. All this is to affirm: if you're interested, apply! And assume you will be taken seriously.
  • It is RIDICULOUS to suggest that Berkeley -- or any other university -- would conduct a sham search to masquerade an already-decided upon partner hire. Whoever thinks this has no knowledge of how things actually work. Partner hires are conducted without searches -- that was the case with Kroiz, whose husband teaches in a non-humanities field. The Global Modern art position is not a "rigged" partner hire; it is a legitimate and wide-open search for the top candidate in the field-- in fact, if you did your resaerch you might realize that it is a replacment position for TJ Clark, redefined by the department for a new era of art history. Search timings are completely up to the administration and are often subject to their decisions and whims. This precise position had been requested long ago, but it was only recently authorized. Wild speculations and ostensibly "insider" gossip on this wiki do everyone a disservice.
  • ^ That's simply not true. Julia Bryan-Wilson was hired as a Modernist to replace both Anne Wagner and T.J. Clark. Realistically speaking, this was probably because Berkeley didn't have the money at the time to hire two candidates. Before their retirements, Wagner and Clark generally split dissertations on 20th century Western art, with Wagner supervising contemporary/neo-avantgarde/postmodern dissertations, and Clark supervising work on the historical avantgarde/modernism from the 19th century to around 1950. In both cases, however, they were working in a very specifically Western context. To suggest that Berkeley's search for a candidate working in "cross-cultural, colonial and postcolonial, transnational, and “world” contexts" is a search to replace T.J. Clark doesn't make sense. The department could really benefit from a good Western Modernist scholar, say late 19th century - mid twentieth, but this is not that search. 
  • As the poster above noted, the position has been "redefined by the department for a new era of art history." The department is not looking to replace Clark himself (how could they?) or even the specific range of things he taught, but rather to fill the *line* that was vacated when he left and that the university could not afford to fill at the time JBW was hired. I'm so glad to see that they are doing this search at last, and expanding the department's breadth -- it's going to be an exciting time to be there.
  • re: "RIDICULOUS" - no, it is most certainly NOT ridiculous to suggest that they might conduct such a search. I am an associate faculty at a flagship public R1 university and I know of a similar situation taking place right now now at our university in an allied department. It's probably not a "sham" search in the sense that they know in advance who they're going to hire, but it may very well be "rigged" in the sense that they know it would be best if they were able to make an offer to a particular person. It's extraordinarily rare for an assistant professor, straight out of grad school, to get a spousal hire in the humanities. But it's fairly common for one to get a visiting lecturer position for their spouse, with that lectureship then "turning into" a tenure-track hire after the department begs the administration for a new search, lest they risk losing their great new hire. It's just standard university politics. 
  • It certainly looks like this position is intended as a spousal hire, particularly with the very precise wording of the call, which carefully notes that they welcome applications from international scholars.Looks like this was written with the inside candidate in mind.
  • The spouse in question completed her doctorate at the University of Minnesota; I'm not sure if I would count that as "international."
  • I think that "international" refers to non-U.S. citizens, such as the spouse in question, regardless of where she did she did her grad work.
  • Most of the people here giving you the "inside scoop" about spousal hires and hiring priorities have never been on a hiring committee and don't actually know how things work. That is why they are eagerly reading the wikis, just like you and me. Take it all with a grain of salt.
  • At the end of the day this was not a spousal hire; Dr. Anneka Lenssen is listed as teaching in the Fall '14 departmental course announcement. A lot of worry and gnashing of teeth could have been avoided if people had trusted Berkeley to run a fair search.

  • did they ever send out rejection letters? (5/8) Never received a rejection letter, has anyone been hired? (5/16)
  • apparently yes. If it makes anybody feel better, this is a very dysfunctional department. The previous head of art history never published much, but used her job to jump-start her career as a writer of romance novels. This is her website (  http://www.madelinehunter.com/  )   Note the airbrushed photo, if compared to this: http://www.duq.edu/academics/schools/liberal-arts/academic-departments-of-liberal-arts/history/faculty-and-staff . The current position was supposedly done to replace the previous Modernist, a -tenured- "assistant" professor.  The search committee consisted of two people: a tenure-track (3rd year) assistant professor of Art History and another -tenured- assistant professor, this time in History.
  • Regarding the note above this one, it sounds like someone close to the department is suffering from indigestion due to sour grapes and a thwarted sense of entitlement. If he/she did not land the job, perhaps it was due to a clear lack of professionalism.

Notes:

  • This should be a search for a 19th-century specialist, since they already have Megan Luke for Modern European art. Does anybody know more about it?
  • I know they made an offer to Michael Leja last year but it fell through. They're looking for a high-ranking scholar to enter with tenure (despite their open rank call). Most likely a replacement for Richard Meyer.
  • Is this search complete? Looks like they hired someone for the fall, according to their webpage.
  • I don't know, but that announcement has been posted on their website for at least a couple of months.
  • Word is that their 2nd hiring attempt fell through as well. 
  • Does anyone know, then, if they still plan to try to fill the position in this hiring cycle?
  • can someone please update this?
