The New School - Assistant Professor, Latin American History

  • Has anyone heard anything from the new school? acknowledgement of application? Interview or anything?

I checked and had sent it to the proper email but nevertheless re-sent it. After pestering original person with several emails, they finally responded saying all my materials were in order. Goes to show they have received a lot of applications, and are only now starting to sort through them. (12/18)

  • Any word, AHA interviewees?
  • No word yet.
  • Heard a rumor that they already have someone groomed for this position and they're just running the search as a formality--anybody know anything?
  • I don't know whether the search is just a formality or not, but it is true that they have someone who has already been lecturing there for years.
  • Hard to know -- even the person doesn't know, but the position does appear to be tailored for him. But someone else at New School told me it was a serious search. In any case, I haven't heard a thing, so I assume I was not invited to campus as of 1/27.
  • I heard that the campus visits have already been scheduled.
