  • I'm in the same boat. I had a request for more materials on 10/27. I suspect the post about Skype interviews scheduled on 10/25 is either incorrect or was meant to be posted to a different position. I haven't heard one way or the other since submitting the additional materials. Good luck!

  • Is this ad a preview of what English PhD jobs are going to look like under Trump's America? "[E]xperience in Outdoor Education is required" and "Outdoor skills certifications in wilderness first aid, canoe and kayak, and/or rock-climbing are also preferred." So in other words, "No POC need apply."
  • I don't know which is more insane --- your presumption that only white people have experience in outdoor eductation, or your implication that the Penn St. English Department is home to reactionary racists who are trying to find creative and legal ways to exclude non-whites from their department.
  • Wow, the first comment is probably the dumbest comment I've ever read on this wiki.
  • Maybe the ruth is in the middle - subconscious class preference? What would say?
