Any word here?

(4/23) Has anybody who was asked for more materials on 4/4 heard back either way? I assume that Skype interviews must have take place by now....

(4/23) I received a request but have not heard back. The deadline for materials was 4/10. 

x3 me too ... got a request, but haven't heard since ...

x4 ... request but no follow up  x5 same here, request but no follow up

This is insane; surely they must have done their Skype interviews by now, right? I know they're doing a medieval search as well, and it's the end of term, but it's just not fair to keep people who are finishing their semesters (and making May travel plans, etc.) up in the air. Especially when I suspect they've already called their chosen 3-4, and the rest of us are out. Has anyone asked what the status is? I think it's fair to do so now...

(4/26) I have a friend who has a campus visit here.

  • Did anyone else who received the rejection letter find it odd? I figured that I probably wouldn't get this job, so I wasn't that surprised or let down, but this was my first rejection letter so I was wondering if anyone else knew if this was normal or not.

Does anyone know what the message from Slideroom that is sent to references actually says?

Has anyone gotten any kind of acknowledgment from this post?

Does anyone know if the search committee is still sending out emails to schedule Skype interviews, or have they completed the process?

-- I just interviewed with them, so my guess is that they're finished inviting people for interviews (and they said they're on the "MLA timeline," so that suggests that they're looking to get through prelim interviews before the new year). But perhaps if the first interviews don't go well they'll send out more invites? Sorry I don't have any more conclusive info.

No news on campus interviews yet (1/7), but can I just say, it is so nice to receive a short, kind response from the SC to the email "thank you" that I sent after my interview. I'm getting the sense that SCs don't usually respond to such emails, but regardless of their final decisions, I really appreciate the graciousness of the chair for responding!

NOTES:

Has anyone who interviewed received a rejection? Or are we all being kept in the "just in case" pile? I haven't heard...

N.b. In the timeline described to me by the search committee, they did not anticipate scheduling campus interviews for a week or two after MLA, for several good reasons. This person says it was scheduled the very day after MLA... are they sure they don't mean a Skype (preliminary) interview, because they couldn't make it to MLA? Or some similar misunderstanding?

Mmm...I doubt it, though it's an optimistic thought. My guess is they called the 2 people they were interested in right away. Search committees often overstate the time they will take to make decisions, simply because they believe it gives them a buffer zone. [So, for example, if their top choice agrees to a visit, then gets snapped up by Princeton before coming and bows out, they can go to #3 without that candidate knowing s/he wasn't a first choice. Or so they imagine. Of course, it invariably happens that #3 has seen the wiki, is friends with at least 1 of the chosen candidates, and has a friend in the Princeton dept. who has filled him/her in on developments...So it's not exactly an effective method.] But I do wonder whether anyone other than the candidate who posted a visit has heard? Strange that SC chair would respond to the first poster's thank you note on the day visits were scheduled without any indication of what the status was.

Does anyone know whether visits have taken place/finished?

Was anyone who interviewed given the timeline on this job? I forgot to ask.  

No!  Sorry, I also forgot to ask and they didn't volunteer any info re: timeline.  

Still nothing here? Did anyone get a timeline out of these folks? Or are visits scheduled but not recorded here?

I forgot to ask about their timeline, too, and haven't heard anything one way or another.

Well, has anyone heard/found out anything? I'm thinking either visits are happening/have happened with no notice to other candidates, or this job is in funding trouble. (N.b. This is complete speculation on my part, but it's just plain weird that they would tell no one their schedule, then be incommunicado this long. And this is notoriously a dept. that doesn't do so well with the administration.) If anyone has or knows of a campus visit, please do tell!

Yes, I know of one campus interview for USM. [posted 1/29]

NOTES:

Any news here, folks? 

  • None that I've heard. Do we even know if they'll interview at MLA? Have they, historically?
  • A: It would be highly unusual for U. of Toronto to do MLA interviews. Historically, they (and most other Candian schools) don't do MLA, and that practice seems to be holding this year. They are running numerous other searches in other fields, so I wouldn't be surprised if they are just running more slowly on some of them. Those U of Toronto searches that have scheduled interviews so far this year (in MedievalEthnic American, and Victorian) appear to be doing video interviews or going straight to campus [12/09].
  • Just one Skype interview noted so far... Does anyone know if this committee is still in the process of selecting candidates for interviews?
  • They have chosen everyone they want to interview and the interviews will happen next week.
  • Actually they DO historically interview at the MLA. I've been there twice with them. Have also interviewed with McGill at the MLA. Not sure what they're up to this year; assume that the skype interview replaces the MLA.
  • This should be interesting to watch. Friend is a TT up in Canada (square in the field) and not selected for interview. I guess UToronto is always pretty interesting to watch (for those of us who find this interesting - bless us).
