      • There was one last year, and one in 2013 for a tenured China historian. I vaguely heard that they had trouble getting a large enough pool of applicants last year, maybe due to the confusion surrounding the UK system and the expectations of the job? Or perhaps Durham is just being a sensible 21st-century university and building up its Asia programming! [3 Dec]
