Japanese Language and Literature, 2008-2009 job cycleEdit

After last year's bumper crop of positions, this is looking like a far less promising job market (if you're a modernist, and don't have Chinese under your belt, even more so). So, please add any positions (TT, VAP, or otherwise) as you become aware of them!

This year's jobsEdit

Lang/lit TT

  • MLA interview scheduled
  • phone interview (mid Dec)

Chinese and Japanese lang/lit TT

  • Auburn (Chinese and Japanese lang/lit; deadline 5 November)
  • Denison (Chinese and Japanese lang/lit; deadline 21 November)

Linguistics/pedagogy TT

  • phone interview (early Nov)
  • campus interview (end of Nov)
  • Loyola Marymount (applied linguistics, Japanese or Chinese + either French, German, Italian, or Spanish; deadline 31 October)
  • phone interview (early Dec)
  • MLA interview scheduled
