  • That does seem very fast. I second the question above.
  • I inquired because no info on their website and they said their dates didn't coincide with MLA process; they are no longer accepting applications (10/1).
  • Does that mean that they are going to continue with the search processwith the applications that came in before September 10? Or does it mean that they have pulled the job? Curiouser and curiouser.
  • Clarification (10/8): Position is still open; no additional applications are being accepted. So--perhaps that early phone interview appointment is legit after all.
  • I suspect that they had a candidate in mind. This is a small school, with only a few full time TT profs, and a small cadre of lecturers with Ph.Ds. I think this was a way of bumping somoene up.
  • I was the candidate (above) who had the quickly scheduled phone interview. I had sent in my application back in August, when I first saw the job advertised, which might explain it. However, I received a rejection email yesterday.

Campus interview scheduled: 11/1

  • No pressure to reply, but out of curiosity campus interviewee is your specialization in: nonwestern literatures, British literature, interdisciplinary writing, or innovative pedagogies?
  • The university is too fast, the university is too small, the university is too picky, there's an inside candidate... Some people just can't handle rejection...
  • My specialization is in nonwestern literatures. And I was not an inside candidate.

It looks like they are going straight to campus interviews. The acknowledgement didn't even mention phone interviews. I'm wondering if more and more small schools are going to circumvent MLA.

  • It has not been uncommon in the past for a smaller school like this to skip preliminary interviews at MLA. It's maybe more uncommon for such schools to actually do interviews at MLA.
