NOTES AND QUERIES:

  • Also posted at Irish 2015, Comparative 2015 and Anglophone 2015
  • The Search Chair (Rob Carson) welcomes inquiries from applicants: carson at hws.edu.
  • Just an observation: requiring graduate transcripts at this stage seems unusual and potentially expensive. Why would these be needed for a preliminary evaluation?
  • Search Chair replies: Unofficial copies of graduate transcripts are perfectly acceptable. Apologies for any inconvenience. 
  • Thanks for the clarification!
  • Any word yet on this one?
    • None here.
    • Yep -- see above.
  • 1/17 (asking for a friend): Any word on campus visits yet? 
  • None here. Anyone else?
  • Recovering from small heart attack after seeing that this thread was edited...* No, none here either. They did say that they have a very involved provost who wants to look over all finalists personally (though tends to agree with search committee choices), so may be late January before any word.
  • Anything today or last week (1/26)? This really seemed like the kind of decent committee that would tell everyone where he/she stands when visits were announced. BUT...I have a hard time believing they've gone this late.
    • I do think at this point that no news is bad news. Once we've passed the 2-week MLA mark...
    • Ditto. FYI, there's a huge snowstorm rolling through the Northeast (not sure if it's going through Geneva, but hey), so I doubt any committees or provosts will be doing much of anything for the next ~48 hours. (And so we pour ourselves another cup of hot cocoa and we wait...)
  • For the record, I think this really sucks. Not that they may have taken a little longer to get their list in order/approved. So be it. But WHY does anyone (not just HWS--so many places this year and last for me) think it's OK just never to tell candidates who aren't brought to campus anything? It's obnoxious and rude. And easily fixed with a 2 line email. "Thanks for interviewing. We're not bringing you to campus right now." How hard is that? And it's not as if anyone will be upset if things shift a month from now and another visit invitation is extended.
  • For what it's worth, I've heard nothing too (1/26)
    • Have courage friends! Some schools are still doing (or just starting!!) their Skype/Phone interviews with candidates who couldn't make it to Vancouver. So maybe that's the case here too.
  • Hey y'all -- I don't want to seem all sour grapes, but now that I can count myself among the "rejected (after prelim interview)," I'm curious: does anyone know someone who got a campus visit *besides* the inside candidate at HWS? (I do know for a fact that there is an inside candidate.)
  • If that is true (and I too had heard about the inside candidate but didn't know he was preferred, and I too was rejected after MLA and have not previously posted to this thread), then Hobart should have mentioned this in the ad or to the people they interviewed. Phony searches waste time and money. But maybe we are jumping the gun. I guess we will know soon. 
  • was there ever a final word on this?
  • For the record, this did turn out to be an inside hire.

NOTES AND QUERIES:

  • "completed application will include" lists four things... application system requires you to upload five???
  • Any word on interviews for this one?
  • None, as far as I can tell. I know someone who interviewed with the department last year, and I'm pretty sure it was Skype. Still, the additional mats requests came before Thanksgiving, which would suggest they were going to schedule the interviews (Skype or MLA) on the usual schedule, right? Does anyone know??
  • any updates on this one? (1/22)
  • None! They said in the interview that they'd let candidates know Monday or Tuesday (of this week)...did anyone else get a different timeline?

Request for additional materials:

  • in the editor portion of this, I see requests for additional materials have already gone out, but people are listing materials that were already initially requested (such as writing sample). Can you elucidate? Did you not originally send these?*
  • I think you may not be reading the edit summary correctly. Requests of additional material have been recorded for Skidmore and for U Nevada Reno so far (as of 11/3) but not this job (Arizona). In fact this job was just posted last week (and the deadline isn't until 11/24), so it's doubtful that requests for this position have already gone out.

  • Has anyone heard about campus visits?

  • I asked when I was there, and it seems they're probably meeting mid-week to deliberate. Courage!
  • Thanks! You too... Though I can't help hoping you want & get something else fantastic...:)
  • Any news here??
  • Does anyone have an update on this?
  • It seems like they made an offer to the first choice today. [posted 2/19]
  • The above is speculation based on correspondence, not fact. (2/19)
  • ^^Can I ask what you mean? Was there a notice that went out?
  • ^^^I wrote this comment after receiving an update email that had the tone of a standard "soft rejection" (though I still have no solid information). I apologize for any potential misinformation; this was just based on other experience.
  • These dicks never even bothered to reject after MLA interviews. WTF is wrong with people in this career? No consideration at all. Fuckers. Enjoy your frozen wasteland at your shit school.
  • I agree--seriously unprofessional poor etiquette here. And I actually liked them at MLA and was thinking it might not be as bad as it looked (some decent researchers, a low teaching load). But I definitely think less both of the school and of the dept. as a result of my interview experience with them.

[posted Mon 11/10/14]: Hello candidates,

I’m Laura Miller, the eighteenth centuryist at West Georgia. I’m on the 20th/21st/Anglophone search committee. I am writing to give you a heads-up that Interfolio submission to our positions will close this Friday so that search committees have enough time to review applications and meet to discuss interviews.

Best wishes and good luck on the market.

  • As a veteran applicant in this bogged-down market, I just want to say that this must be one of the most humane search committee notes I've seen. Kudos to Laura Miller and UWG, and thanks for the info! (x2) [Thank you very much -- I remember from my time on the market a couple of years ago that with so few jobs, accidentally missing a deadline can be very stressful. Hence the posting. -- LM]
  • It seems to me that their applicant pool so far stinks.
  • Nope. Our chair decided to close the Interfolio submissions on Friday because we had a very large pool of applicants (as one would expect with multiple subfields) and we were concerned that we would not have enough time to give sufficient attention to each candidate's dossier. I'm happy to answer generic/nonconfidential questions by email if you need any other information. --LM
