MLA Interviews Edit

List NEW information at top - please post "Have you heard?" questions below, under Word on the Steet,

  • University of Tennessee, Knoxville (12/7)
  • Whitman College (12/6) x3
  • Furman (12/05) x3
  • Rollins College (12/05) x3 (I just found this invitation in my spam box so might be worth a check)
  • Colby College (12/02) x2 x3. Turned down interview as I am not going to the MLA. Q: Did you ask for a Skype interview instead of MLA and they refused? A. I asked for a Skype interview, but they said NO. A2: Wow!  I'm pretty sure that MLA guidelines say that schools should offer Skype interviews if the candidate can't make it to the MLA. That committee must be very out of touch (or just completely callous). Sorry to hear that. A3: That happened to me with Florida State in 2012 (English/multiethnic, colonial). I think it's more common than we realize.
  • Florida State University (12/02) x2.
  • Valparaiso (12/01)

Rejections Edit

List NEW information at top:

  • CSU-Fullerton. 12.05. Email saying the search has been cancelled. (Peninsular studies)
  • Northwest Missouri State University. Post-interview Call (11/22). Position offered to another candidate.
  • Pacific Lutheran University Email (11/16). No interview (x5)
  • University of Nebraska-Kearney (Assistant/Associate Prof position). Email (11/15). No interview. Q1: At least you got an e-mail. I sent my application looong ago and they didn't even email a reject.
  • Hood College. Email (11/15). No interview (x3). Q1 I received a rejection one week before, I guess it was the second round of rejections, this must be the third? It´s a weird way to reject people, right?
  • University of Houston (Digital Humanities), email (11/9): I got an email from them letting me know that they won't pass my application, albeit I applied to this possition in 2015. Q1: Wait, you mean you just received a rejection notice now from an application submitted a year ago back in Fall 2015? A1 to Q1: Yes. I applied to this position in Fall 2015 and just got a message from them. A2: From what I understand (piecing together 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th hand info), last year's search had "complications" w/ a candidate. There were multiple universities and multiple departments involved. (Hurray cross-disciplinary studies!) When an offer involves complex negotiations, it can take a couple of semesters to sort out. I've heard 2nd hand that UH still has the line open, but I don't do digital humanities and I haven't looked. Now for conjecture (I'm totally guessing here; it's an educated guess, but I have no direct or indirect info on the following) So... maybe this means the position from last year has re-opened? And if you received a rejection, then you had been in the running until now, and maybe others are still in the running? I have no idea if they dept sent out rejections last year.
  • San Diego State University (Peninsular), email (11/8) (x6) Q1: Did you get an interview for this?.A1: No, I didn't.A: Rejection via Interfolio.
  • San Diego State University (Southern Cone), email (11/2) (x5) Q1: was this after having a web interview? A: I didn't get an interview. 
  • Kennesaw State, post phone interview (10/12) 
  • Hood College in Frederick, MD started sending early notifications of rejections (x3). It seems they are looking for a teacher, not a researcher or both, even though it appeared from the description that they wanted the later. Also, did anyone notice how the online application never asked for letter of recommendation? I had to contact Prof. Zuffi (contact info in the job description). QUESTION: got rejection via email? Thanks. ANSWER: Yes, a computer generated type of e-mail from Human Resources, not even from the search committee. (x3) A2: What kind of joke is this?! A3: This is a strange situation. I sent off my app at 10pm and got my computer generated rejection at 7am the following morning! A: It sounds odd. I would contact HR to make sure it wasn't a computer glitch but this may go against the "rules." A: Nah. I'm sure it breaks some unspoken protocol, so I'm not worried about it. Just makes it sound like they have some insane algorithm that determines who matches, and I didn't. I've heard from a few other sources that they got a rejection letter pretty soon after application as well, so maybe they are just very particualr about who they are looking for. Best of luck to the rest!
  • Miami University (OH), started sending early notifications of rejections, via e-mail by the chair of the department. Q1. Really? the MLA says that they will not start screening applications until 11/17. This is the border studies position, right?A1 No, no, it was an instructor position, and it has already been removed from the website so I guess they just had hired somebody really quick.

  • Lehman College (11/21): Email acknowleding receipt of application.(Q) Was this automatically generated bythe system or did it come from the department? I applied but have not heard anything, except the crickets:( A: Don't freak out, it's just that my documents were impossible to open, so I had to resubmit them. I don't think it means anything, good or bad, at all.
  • U of Maine at Farmington (11/10) (x2): Email acknowledging application and saying they will contact candidates for Skype and telephone interviews in early December

I had done that, so this email may have gone out to all applicants to make them aware...(R1)Yes, they confirmed that it was a courtesy email and that materials had been received. I had done the same.

A: he just responded and email is fine!)

Word on the street Edit

  • Anything from Southern Oregon University? (12/8)
  • Anything From St. Mary's College of Maryland? (12/7)
  • Anything from Berkeley or William & Mary (medievalist positions)? (12/6) A1: I know someone who has a William & Mary interview
  • Anything from UCLA (transatlantic/colonial)? (12/6)
  • Anything from Lehigh? (12/4)
  • Anything from Colorado College - Colorado Springs? (12/2) A1: Nothing! A2: Nothing! (12/5) x2
  • Anything from Furman? (12/1)
  • Anything from U Virginia College at Wise? (11/29)?
  • Anything from Fitchburg? (11/29) A1: Nothing yet. Nothing either here.A2: Email to schudule phone interview received 12/3
  • Anything from Johns Hopkins? Their deadline was 10/15. A1: Nothing yet. A2: Email to schedule Skype interview, received 11/22.
  • Anything about U Wisconsin-LaCrosse post skype interviews?
  • Anything about Whitman College? (11/15) A: Whitman usually interviews at the MLA, so expect to hear from them in December. A2: Someone just posted an MLA Interview.
  • Any inside candidate at Miami University, Border Studies? (11/15) A1. Are you looking for an excuse to withdraw your candidacy? If so, then assume the position has an inside candidate and withdraw your name from consideration. If you're interested in the job, stay in the running for the job. This inside candidate obsession is ridiculous. Sorry for any hint of snide in my tone. A2: I agree - the constant questions about whether there is someone is unhelpful. Someone below had a first hand experience, and that's awful. What is also awful is that most of us now have to enter in as poorly paid VAPs and really hope they pick us if the dept. opens a TT line. I also think it does more damage to our psyche to worry about who the inside candidate is - also more energy consuming if you feel like looking at everyone's bio. It's my second round and I'd say just focus on doing the best that you can and if this wears you down, as it has done many of us, consider what alternatives exist. 
  • If anyone came across a job post for an Assistant Professor of Spanish at Lake Forest College (IL) through Indeed, it is an expired ad. I e-mailed the chair of the department and I was told that the ad was from last year's search. They will (or already did) remove it. Oh Sh*t. I sent me application there!
  • Does anyone know if this search at Pitt was cancelled ( The link to apply says they are no longer accepting applications. A: I don't know, but that job ad is from 2015 (it actually says it somewhere in there). I thought I saw an ad for 2016, but now I can't find it. It was exactly the same as last year. A: There is no TT job at Pitt this year. It was last year's ad, and the position was filled.
  • No news from Virginia Tech since the Skype interview? (11/11) A: They have invited candidates for campus visits (11/16)
  • Any word on the Peninsular position at Johns Hopkins? A1: I am also wondering. Have not heard anything since submission (11/7).
  • Wake Forest University already has a VAP who has experience teaching medical Spanish, any insight on this?
  • Any inside candidate at Lafayette College? A1: Absolutely! A2: Also, beware of the tenure denial scandal last year A3: I don't think we should be mentioning names in a public forum.
  • There is an inside candidate at University of Florida. A: Which position?
  • Anything about Virginia Tech? A: I am also wondering (10/17). Give it at least another week; they said they would be doing interviews at the end of October. It is not at all unusual to be invited to do a Skype interview the day prior.
  • It seems there is an inside candidate at Lehigh University, any confirmation of this?
  • Any news on the chair position at UTSA?

Free advice (especially for colleagues new to the market) Edit

  • Keep in mind that many Community Colleges actually pay more than Lecturer or even tenure track positions. I can tell you this from expereince. Also most community collges offer a tenure system. Some lecturer positions pay no more than 40k these days (some even 30k-something and some tenure track jobs start in the low 50'sK. If research is not your cup of tea I recommend you to take a look in to community colleges. Buena suerte! A1: That's true, but I've also heard CCs tend to not take candidates seriously unless they have CC teaching experience, which inevitably means you must first become initiated as an exploited adjunct somewhere else. Is there truth to this/does anyone have experience to the contrary? A2: From a recent perusal of CC employment pages, one stated very enthusiastically that XX% of the faculty started as part-time adjuncts and this is a "rite of passage" and "demonstrates interest in and commitment to the institution".
  • If you're a member of the MLA, you can get a free subscription to Interfolio.
  • Follow Florida State University application submission instructions carefully-- they want all required documents uploaded together as a single pdf under the CV section in their online system.
  • Boa sorte! / ¡Buena suerte! 
  • I highly recommend Karen Kelsky's _The Professor is In_ ($12 on Amazon). Covers all areas of the job search and professional development.  Fantastic resource! A2: I second this! A3: Thanks, Karen. A4: Nope, it wasn't Karen who posted this! The book is genuinely superb. I know that in some departments they are ordering it for all of the graduate students to prepare them for the job search.
  • Do not sweat the internal candidates. There is no conflict of interest with regard to internal candidates (unless they are the chair's relative, of course, in which case the administration should take measures to prevent a COI). Internals are visitors filling a need for coverage in the unit. That is all. Depending on their performance, being a known quantity can work in favor or against their candidacy.  Just do your best. Good luck!  A1: (x All of Academia) minus (a few paranoid grad students certain that Inside Candidates are about to pop out and scream "Boo!" at every turn)

General Discussion, Questions, and Inquiries Edit

  • I noticed above that someone was denied a Skype interview in place of an MLA interview. Given that attending the MLA is a huge expense for many of us, and many people attend just for 1 or 2 first round interviews, I think I would also request Skype over MLA. Thoughts on this? Would you go to the MLA for just one interview if you're not presenting? A1: I attended the MLA for one interview last year. I didn't make it to the campus visit and the expenses were outrageous. I will never do it again. I certainly prefer to be interviewed in person, but it is absurdly expensive for the candidates. A2. I was the one who got denied a Skype interview at Colby College. I think this was absurd because the position is for a "Visiting Professor", not a tenure-track position. The person who called me was not very friendly either. And yes, the MLA is extremely expensive and it's ironic that people who are looking for a job have to pay so much to attend. Oh the "Ivory Tower" of Academia........ A3. Aww gawd! It's frigging ridiculous. They can't do this; it's immoral. I don't apply to jobs that list attending MLA as a requirement in the first place. Even if I attend the convention (they're usually horrible places to work at). 
  • Hello everyone! I have a question. This is my first time in the job market and I was wondering if it is normal to follow up after submitting an application. Do you guys send e-mails asking about the search timetable and such info? What kind of language do you use? Thanks!  A: No. I would not recommend that. Timelines depend greatly on each department and that is not a question, even for an interview. You may send a follow-up thank you after an interview, but in the academic job search, no news is probably not good news, but done very purposefully. Others may have different opinions, but this is the advice I was given. A2 First responder is right, in my experience. Keep in mind you are just one of a hundred (sometimes more) applicants, so the search committee members are already feeling overwhelmed just by trying to winnow down to manageable piles of applications. If you add to their workload by sending an unprompted inquiry or note, it could seem like you are pressuring, which more than likely is just going to make you an annoyance. And timelines are a moving target. If you get an interview, it doesn't hurt to ask about timelines at the end, to kind of show you're serious. But don't expect to get a firm answer, even if it sounds firm. There are a hundred different things that can put a search off its intended schedule and usually at least one or two will come up.
  • Governors State University now has a job post for a Spanish Adjunct, I am guessing they cancelled the tenure-track position? A1. I don't think so, they were looking for both positions, maybe they just did not advertise both openings at the same time.
  • Hi guys. Is it too early to be discouraged about the job market? It's my second year in the search and I am starting to lose hope. I am underpaid in a non-tenured job with zero stability. Could being in a teaching position for too long affect my chances of being hired for a tenure-track position? I'm starting to panic. A1: Yes, being in a teaching position for too long reduces your chances of being hired for a TT position (publish as much as you can while you're off the TT, that will help). The job market is getting worse each year due to budget cuts all over the country. I don't see a buoyant job market any time soon.  A2. It's my third year in the market and still no luck getting a TT. This year seems worse than the two before. This is really disappointing. A3 A teaching position can actually increase your chances of getting a TT position at an instituion that values teaching above scholarship. A4: It took me 3 years to get a TT position, do not lose hope, not everybody gets it the first year in a job market like this ; ) A5: No, don't lose hope. A colleague just got a great TT job after 4 years as a visitor. Use this time to become an outstanding teacher, publish, and generally build your CV. Take advantage of U resources to attend workshops, learn about new technology and methods in teaching, and put it all on your CV. Teach as wide a range of classes as you are able. Good luck! Q: Thank you guys for your kind words, you're all very nice. I hope things get better and something comes up my way... I tend to get desperate, then depression takes over and the only exit I can see is the easy one. Can't believe some universities request letters knowing they have a cost to be sent. Every letter delivered though Interfolio costs $4. Couldn't they be considerate to those who are out  of work and request letters to shortlisted candidates only? Please, if some day you become a member of a search committee, take this into account.       
  • I just checked the MLA Job List and there's only 101 job ADs (I never saw more than 119). I remember seeing up to 150 positions posted in previous years. I know the MLA is not the only source to look for job ADs, but the other couple of websites didn't have much either this year. I don't know what you think, but this year does not look very promising. Hope you all have better luck than me.
  • Will visiting positions come out later in the year/beginning of next year? Haven't seen that many visitings at all. A1: This has been a very atypical year altogether. I don't know what to expect. A2: Generally speaking, the spring is when there are more visitings posted. Last year was pretty slim, so who knows. But depts. have to wait on funding decisions, leave replacement petitions, etc., which is why they often are later. A3: Visitings come out all year long, because faculty resign, retire, get prestigious grants w/ teaching releases, go on FMLA, etc. at any/all times of year. When coverage is needed, the visiting position is advertised. Keep checking the job ads and good luck! 
  • Why does the MLA website show this message when you click on their "Job Information list"? " The online JIL is closed for the summer. The database of new job listings for the 2016-17 JIL publication year will be available beginning on 12 September." A1: Yikes. I emailed their web support to notify them of the problem. I'm getting the same error; I can access my saved jobs but can't search for new ones. Followup: It seems to be fixed now.
  • Trump's triumph has been devastating for aspiring POC candidates. The idea of working in an environment that is not welcoming brings me to tears. Sending strength to those who are in the same boat. (x5) A1: Brexit has been devastating for students and scholars in GB. Hopefully this won't happen in the US. A2: Our vocation is more important than ever. Our challenge is to turn colleges from "liberal bubbles" into zones of contagious critical action. A3: This is devastating indeed, but not new at some levels. I have been asked more than once during a job interview if I am going to need visa/green card sponsorhip and then was told that the institution will not do it. Call it discrimination or enforcement of the law, but this happens often to international scholars. A4: I don't think it's necessarily discrimination or enforcement of the law. The issue is many small institutions have budgets so small they cannot afford the cost of sponsorship, not for the H1 for the first year or two, but for residency. Residency, if done through employer sponsorship, is costly, moreso than if an individual is sponsoring a family member. Additionally, law prohibits the individual from covering the cost for the employer - it has to be the employer. And as I said, that cost is high for an individual - if you have a spouse or family member that would also require residency, the employer must cover those costs as well. These are more likely things the search committee has been told by the institution and are not necessarily singling people out with malicious intent.
  • Is the search at Columbia still going on? Seems that they haev cancelled it. Q: Which position? Q: Do you mean the digital humanities position? Why do you have the impression they've cancelled it?
  • Hi, does anyone know if universities check credit reports of their candidates and if having a negative credit report will affect my chances of being hired? Thank you. A1: Most of them do. However, they do it after you've been selected as the best candidate. Thus a bad credit isn't that relevant unless you have a really bad credit score.
  • Hello, does anyone know if there's any websites like the MLA/Chronicle/Highered that posts jobs for Spanish professors in Europe or Asia?? I don't want to sound melodramatic, but I could use a break from this country for a few years. Thank you. A: They don't for the most part. The UK, for instance, has its own academic job site:
  • BTW, I don't feel capable of restoring it, but someone removed a LOT of content from this site. Maybe someone else knows how to bring it back. 1) Yes, I noticed that too. A2: Last year some people deleted a lot of contents. I don't know why they do it or who they are. 
  • Has anyone received a "surprise" phone call for an interview before receiving an e-mail about it? I ask because I had to travel abroad and I will not be able to take phone calls at the moment. A1: I have been contacted via telephone to set up interviews before. I would imagine/hope they would leave a voice message or reach out via email in the event that someone doesn't anwer a call. A2: Yes. Last year I got a call before an e-mail. First they asked me some vague questions and told me that they would let me know if I was going to be invited to have an interview with them at the MLA Conference. A week later I got an e-mail letting me know that they wanted to interview me and that I should call them to schedule the interview. A3: notifications can come at any time, in any format. Be sure to somehow make your availability known for outstanding apps.
  • I highly recommend to those who drone on about inside candidates AFTDJ (apply for the d*mn job) anyway, and read up in the Chronicle or online elsewhere about the realities of so-called inside candidates. More often than not, it is a hinderance, not a help. You have no idea if the people you believe are being cultivated for the job want it, or that there are not many more appealing candidates out there. Talk of inside candidates is not really helpful to anyone, unless you are trying to dissuade others from applying for a job you want. A. I can't speak for others, but in my previous institution I witnessed how they kept the inside candidate and carried out a fake job search, and -in my perspective- the other candidates were more qualified . It also happened to myself last year. Of course, you can say "you never know", (and you can always apply to see what happends), at the same time it is heartbreaking when you are invested in a position for which there's already a person in mind. That been said, good luck as this year does not look bettter than the previous ones. A2: See my comments under "advice". Being internal can help or hurt. It all depends. Of course you have to apply for the job you want, regardless of internal competition. 
  • Will there be more tenure-track positions open and posted on the MLA/Chronicle/HigherEd websites? I don't know about you, but this is not looking so promising for me so far. A1: I believe most TT positions have already been posted. There will be more in the upcoming months, but don't expect many. It seems like this one is going to be a difficult year. A2: Administrations approve TT lines all year long, so yes, keep checking all year. Especially in uneven budget years, timing is not always regular and in line with the job search season.
  • SDSU just posted again their two positions on insidehighered with a ne deadline in December. The previous deadline was Oct. 7. Why do you think they this did? Maybe they didn't like any of the candidates in the first pool? A1: Bearing in mind they have already started asking for interviews for one of the jobs (Southern Cone), maybe just a reminder/automatic renewal of their job application in that website?
  • Is it just my impression or there are much fewer candidates looking for a job this year? A1: I am not sure, how do you check that? Or what are you basing it on to come to that conclusion? (genuinely asking! I'm very curious about this). A2: I don't know that there are much fewer of us, but I think much fewer using/participating in this wiki...I haven't added myself to demographics list, for example. I know of a lot of people going out on the market for the first time this year, but not sure they are using this site. I hope people do start when interview offers come in, since that was mostly how I figured out when I was out of the running last year. A3: Last year's wiki had almost 70 ppl in demographics; hopefully more will join here when interviews roll in amid the tumbleweeds. A4 (to A1): I meant exactly what our colleagues wrote: last year I saw about 70 people participating in the wiki; this year we are 20. Probably the issue is that some colleagues will participate during the interview season or don't want to participate at all. 
  • Inside Candidate at Florida State?
  • Ohio State job is for internal candidate--That's nice, but make sure to still apply. What happens when the internal candidate gets a job somewhere else? There are lots of reasons to apply, even if the job looks like an internal candidate.<--what they said.
  • Be aware of likely inside candidate for USC job (current USC postdoc is a Carribeanist with background in German and cirtical philosophy) (10/7/16). C1: Yes, and he is very good I heard. However, one should apply, you never know. What if USC's program is not what the postdoc is looking for? OP (Original poster): Yes, he is good and, yes, one never knows. Just be aware.  C2: USC Spanish has a long history of hiring its post-docs into TT positions, including its hire last year (who is wife of another TTrack).
  • If you are planning to apply for the position at Northern Arizona University, please keep in mind that Flagstaff, AZ is Very expensive. A one bedroom apartment there could easily rent for $1,200-$1,600/month. Flagstaff is called "Poverty with at View." Salaries at NAU for lectures are very low ($42K-non negotiable), very little money for moving expenses.  Also, NAU deducts 10%-11% for your retirement (not optional). Also, you will be in a 9-month contract, if you do not return the next year, you will lose your health insurance in May. This is first-hand advice. If you have more than one option I suggest you take all this into account before making a decision. Good luck to everyone! C1: $1200 a month?  Sheesh!  Try Vancouver, you'll pay that much to share a studio with 1-2 other roommates.  As for the retirement, pretty standard; some institutions take as much as 12-14%.  
  • Beware of Soka University, Soka Gakkai is a cult with very aggressive proselytizing techniques. A: Good to know! 
  • So... they've just been saving all the good jobs to release them this Friday, right? A: Oxalá! 
  • Has anyone realized that the Sacramento State ad asks that candidates have their PhD in hand by December 1st of this year? Isn't this unusual for positions starting the next academic year? A: A job last year asked candidates to have their PhD in hand by January 1st. It's very unusual, but, I imagine, only becoming more common, likely out of a fear of grads not finishing their PhDs on time.
  • For those new to the MLA job market, yesterday's (9/12) posted jobs on the Job Information List wa/s really, /really low, like the fall of 2009 JIL low. I can't remember how many jobs were posted the first week last year, but there were somewhere around 57/58 TT jobs posted the first week in 2014. I counted 24 positions yesterday. The first week's listings give a very good indication of how the market will play out. Back in 2006-08 there were routinely 180-200+ jobs the first week, and ppl were concerned about the flagrant lack of TT jobs considering the true needs of universities. A: So most of us will have to find a job outside of academy, right? R: Um, yeah. You always should have had a plan B to begin with, but now more than ever. I'm honestly shocked they're this low. I knew we weren't going to get back to the numbers from a decade ago, but I didn't anticipate dropping to the (relatively understandable) numbers of the Great Recession. A2: No question it's a lousy job market. That said, the trend has been for TT jobs to be posted later and more spread out each year (thanks I guess to more uncertain budgets and greater ease in publishing ads and receiving applications digitally). So I would say don't panic yet. A3: El compañero tiene razón. No obstante, y sin que esto sirva para caer en optimismos baratos e injustificados, es verdad también que es muy pronto. Muchos departamentos están todavía consiguiendo los últimos permisos de las oficinas del decano para publicitar los puestos, y estos papeleos siempre llevan tiempo. También hay que tener en cuenta que cada año la lista del MLA se publica antes, con lo cual es un poco injusto comparar las listas de este año o del pasado con las de hace 10 años. (Crisis económicas aparte, claro). Otra de las cosas que ha cambiado es que hace una década, la lista del MLA era prácticamente la única fuente publicitaria de los puestos, mientras que ahora hay más opciones. Lo único que quiero decir es que seamos pacientes. Tenemos que esperar hasta finales ed septiembre o primera semana de octubre para tener una idea clara del número de puestos de este año. Buena suerte a todos. A: I agree with A2. I've noticed that less employers are using the MLA Job Information List to advertise. I've seen jobs pop up all year round more often in these last few years. I'm glad about it, if only because I think that the old-fashioned MLA Convention interview to be unrealistic and economically unsound. There are also plenty of jobs if you want to teach 5/5 or 6/6 with research and service obligations, or do high school teaching. Those jobs usually appear later in the cycle. Those plum positions our advisers have are few and far between (and can be easily lost due to budget cuts/mergers). OP (Original poster) again: the main reason why I noticed the first week MLA job listing numbers is that it's been coming out on Sept. 12 for several years. This coming Friday (week 2) typically will have about 50% or slightly higher, and week 3 will have about 50% of week 2's number. Jobs have always trickled in as the school year progresses. That hasn't changed in the decade+ that I've followed the JIL. I haven't seen the data on the rate job announcements on JIL now that more and more departments are foregoing the convention interview process. Having said that, I think that the fact that schools are casting a wider digital net is definitely a contributing factor. The fact that Virginia Tech posted on before the Chronicle of Higher Ed (probably due to a faster process on and the JIL is amazing. A: Indeed is great, but for these types of positions I dobut they are being posted there. For professional positions, it serves more as an agrregator pulling from other sites. For example the Virginia Tech job posted on Higher Ed Jobs before it was posted on Indeed OR the JIL. A: I think we have all noticed at this point, Indeed is actually a very useful source for this year's job hunt - it seems to be updated regularly, but since jobs are sponsored it kind of shuffles them around. I was pretty organized last year and checked my dates and I think the last big batch of job postings on MLA came the last week of September (like OP noted). I have a feeling after this week, maybe next, these are most of the TT jobs for the season. 
  • A2 and A3 are absolutely right above.  The MLA list is no longer the Holy Bible for the job market.  In fact, the MLA suddenly is suddenly looking pretty old-fashioned with their once-a-week updates.  Higher Ed Jobs, Indeed, Vitae all routinely post jobs BEFORE the MLA eventually gets around to it.  On another note - has anyone read the fine print of the Northern Colorado job - "Include the names of the three referees and instruction on how to obtain letters from Interfolio or a campus dossier service"?  Can they actuallly be serious about that last part - they want the candidate to explain to them how to use Interfolio?  As the hiring party and a member of the 21st century, they should mightly well be familiar with already, or figure out themselves!  Sheesh.   I would be very wary of this department, if the search committee is any indication of their problem solving skills.  A1: I think they are just wording it oddly, but are in fact asking for the Interfolio-generated email address for each of your letters of recommendation, while leaving things open for people that might use some other dossier service.
  • As of this writing (9/20) there are only two jobs in Portuguese posted on the MLA JIL, one of which is for Spanish WITH Portuguese too (Morehouse). The other is for the Chair of the Department of Languages at UT El Paso. I expected it to be bad, but not quite this bad. A1: Ohio State just announced a position in Brazilian culture; let's hope things keep improving!
  • Anyone know what the deal is at Whitman?  Seems like they've had a job ad running for the last 4 or 5 years straight.  And now one of their recent hires, an assistant professor,  is the acting chair of the department.  Seems like a potentially unstable situation. Comment: Thanks for letting us know, I wasn't aware of the situation. A2: Correct: they have run a search for at least three years. I would expect that given the circumstances you mention, a mostly external search committee will select the new hire. A3: Their searches have been for different specialties each year, though. Apply and don't speculate about the departmental politics.  Comment:  That what makes it all the more alarming to me.  Three or four different specialties advertised in four years, and yet the department hasn't gotten any bigger and in fact seems to be shrinking. A4: Sure, if you have multiple offers, add departmental stability/politics to the appropriate Positives vs. Negatives column. A5: The search two years ago and this one is pretty much the same, but there's no mystery about it. Their department's decent and so is the College. Unfortunately, Whitman has a bit of trouble retaining faculty. People who've held TT positions there and have left, speak very well of the school. It's mostly had to do with the impossibility of spousal accomodations (with the exception of splitting positions in two). So, apply away. It's a great gig. A6: I agree with the last comment. I interviewed with them last year (at the MLA), and even moved on to their campus visit, and they seem like a great school with a great department. I think living in Walla Walla might be the issue here... A7: I interviewed there a few years ago, and they explained very clearly their plans for hiring a lot of new people in the upcoming years with different specialties.
  • Be aware of an internal candidate for, at least, one of the Adelphi University jobs (one of them is a climber and current adjunct with a Ph.D. in Spanish History and without any educational background or Degree in Spanish Language). She would not qualify for any position, for this reason, feel free to apply... A.2. A faculty member at Adelphi (different dept.) told me that they routinely get applications from full professors at research institutions, SLAC, state schools, you name it ... for any and all TT, assistant professor positions. These are all candidates sincerely interested in teaching there b/c it would mean living in NYC instead of in the middle of nowhere. In short, no such thing as an "inside candidate" w/ a lock on any position in the NYC area. A.3. Ok, Let´s see... I hope you are right (because I applied). But I cannot imagine full professors at research institutions applying for an assitantship position at Adelphi just for the location, and much less to get a lecturership.
