NOTES:

  • Folks might want to note that the posting on Presbyterian's HR site requests three letters of reference.  This is different from what is on the MLA Jobs List/Interfolio: http://www.presby.edu/hr/assistant-professor-of-english/
  • 11/20: Ad in Chronicle also mentions 3 letters of rec (as well as MLA interviews): https://chroniclevitae.com/jobs/0000806757-01
  • I emailed the head of the search committee to inquire about the discrepency and was told that they only want letter and CV at this point -- not recs.
