Avast Ye Members of the Search Committee:

I write to tell ye of my application for the position of Assistant Professor of Literature of the Oceans at Williams College-Mystic. I received my Ph.D. in May 2017 from the University of the Bahamas, under the direction of Professor Edward Thatch. My research has appeared in Leviathan and other journals.

My dissertation, “Sea Chanteys and Little Dinghies: The Erotics of Anglophone Sea Poetry 1800-1900,” explores the ebb and flow of libidinal tropes in anglophone poetry during the period of Britain’s ascent as a naval power. Often scuttled on the rocks of scholarly unconcern, this body of poetry, I argue, provided the era’s central literary form for mediating and channeling the stresses of British naval empire. In the images of sea-spouts and mermaids, sucking whirlpools and snug harbors, one can discern the outlines of an erotic oceanic imagination than understands empire in affective and libidinal terms. From Coleridge’s ancient mariner to Tennyson’s kraken, this poetry works to collect an increasingly dispersed sense of British national identity and release it in a powerful surge of versified sea-spray.

I am currently at work on a second project, “Shiver Me Timbers: Oceanic Disability Studies from Ahab to Captain Hook.” Drawing on tales of nautical mishaps in a range of classic literary works, this project explores how the limitless and boundary-defying body of the ocean makes and re-makes the limited human body. How does the body of the ocean challenge ideas of bodily autonomy, of human agency and purpose? How might disabled sea-farers disrupt normative ideas of the Billy-Budd-like “Handsome Sailor”? High up in the riggings or walking the poop, disabled sailors expand our understanding of the human form even as the sea challenges our limited (and often nationalist) literary perspectives. I’ve also recently completed a new essay on oceanic literature’s contribution to aesthetic theory. In the apparently free play of aquatic life forms, might we detect an understanding of the aesthetic not as purposiveness but, dare I say, as porpoisiveness?

I have experience teaching a variety of nautical literature classes, including “Surf and Turf,” which explores the mutual implication of sea and land tropes in British literature; “Dead Men Tell No Tales,” a class on the persistence of sea tropes in the British elegy; and “Full Fathom Five,” on the sea and familial anxieties from Shakespeare to the modern day. As a teacher, I understand my role to be a plumbing of students’ intellectual depths. Amidst contemporary resistance to literary study, teachers of literature must tack fearlessly across the tricky headwinds of ignorance. I hope that my students will see in literature a sweeping beam of light that will guide them from the stormy waters of their modern adolescence into the safe port of confident adulthood. I would be eager to teach any of the courses listed above at Williams College, as well as courses on oceanic literature and the Anthropocene, “Salty Dogs” (a course on literal dogs in oceanic literature), and Herman Melville.

I will attend the MLA Convention in New York if ye would parley with me there.

Yours,

Dr. John Sparrow

  • ^^^Doc Sparrow, honey, with that letter you deserved THE JOB.

I write to support my exceptional student, Sir Sparrow:

Right Honourable Lee Park, Dean of the Faculty, Servant of the Queen, I assure Your Honour Sparrow's service has much appalled the enemy and has no doubt encouraged our researches in poesy and rhetoric. I think not half of the new scholastics men-of-war; but truly, Prof. Sparrow hath his mettle show'd both at sea and in arcane learning. He came aboard the ship in wonderful good time and brought with him as good knowledge as we could wish. In logic he is not wanting. He strikes a fine figure and could with application be made a tolerable dancing master. Of an evening his chaunts keep their feet in right measure, and sweetly do prick all ears. Your Honour's most ready to be commanded, Frank Drake, MA, LLD, AlchemD

  • ^^^ I mean, haha and all, but no need to mock the position. Some of us would just love to know the status of the search.

Instructor or Assistant Professor - English (Multiple Positions)

Job ID: 18029

Location: LaGuardia Community College

The English Department at LaGuardia Community College is seeking highly motivated and innovative candidates to fill multiple tenure-track positions at the Assistant Professor or Instructor level.

The Assistant Professor or Instructor will teach developmental writing, college composition, and literature; provide academic advisement for students; actively participate in departmental and college-wide initiatives, including curriculum development and professional development activities; and be engaged in scholarly activities, including publications and conference participation.

LaGuardia Community College, located in Long Island City, Queens, educates more than 50,000 New Yorkers annually through degree, certificate, and continuing education programs. LaGuardia is a Hispanic Serving Institution committed to diversity and inclusion, with a student population that self-identifies along a broad spectrum of races, ethnicities, cultures, and religions. Our guiding principle Dare To Do More reflects our belief in the transformative power of education—not just for individuals, but for our community and our country—creating pathways for achievement and safeguarding the middle class. LaGuardia is a national voice on behalf of community colleges, where half of all US college students study.

  • Holy cow, take a look at the mission statement: "The College values the merit of each unique individual, rather than succumbing to the dehumanizing, discriminatory trend of so-called “social justice” and “multicultural diversity,” which judges individuals not as individuals, but as members of a group and which pits one group against other competing groups in divisive power struggles."  Guys, you're supposed to be a little more chill with the politics.  
  • Tip of the iceburg. These guys almost got through as a write-in on the federal tax bill to not have to pay taxes on their endowment. This school is owned by the DeVos family. Only one end of the political spectrum need apply. I hope if you get this job you're cool with never teaching a woman or POC.
