Or the U Alaska-Fairbanks job? Thanks . . . and happy late-season hunting! (4/2) * Q: Has anyone heard anything re: visiting position in American poetry at Reed College? The job isn't listed on any of the wiki pages, so I thought I would try asking here. ** A: The Reed College job is listed on the Generalist page (it's not actually in American poetry, but Poetry and Poetics in general). I interviewed with them at MLA, and they said they were interviewing 18 candidates in total. They also said they would be meeting to decide on campus visits later in January. * Q: Does anyone know anything about the status of this job search? "It's been a long, long, long time..." *Anybody get a flyback request from U of British Columbia?? *Anyone hear anything about eastern Washington University? Last year they cancelled the job and I didn't hear anything yet about this year. Is the job still running? Thanks. A: Sorry, no specifics. I only know that they weren't planning on going through applications until the end of Dec. So I assume there's still time to hear from them. . *Any campus visit requests yet for Texas A&M? *Anyone hear anything about Queens College? Any campus visit requests? A: Campus visits are happening next week, according to email circulated to faculty. A: According to a friend who had a campus visit, a decision is due within the next day or two. *How about Merrimack College? They said they'd notify finalists in the 3rd week of January...I'm wondering, too. They told me they were having their departmental meeting early this week, so I'm anxious to hear from them--or, alas, about them, if that's the case.....A: That conflicts just a little bit with what they told me. In my interview, they sort of hedged about the date they'd be contacting finalists. They said they "hoped" they'd meet in the 3rd or 4th week of January, but couldn't guarantee it would happen, and wouldn't be shocked if decisions weren't made until early Feb. In any case, I haven't heard anything yet, and my info. could be outdated. Here's hoping we can all relax soon! A: I was told they were meeting the third week of January but that they may not get around to final decisions about campus visits or contacting candidates until the third or fourth week of January. Good luck to us all! *Whitman College? They met on Jan. 5th but there's been absolutely no movement on the wiki since MLA. Bueller? Bueller? **I know someone with a campus visit there, but I don't know the invitation date (sorry). **I know someone who was offered a flyback back on 1/6 or 1/7. *Murray? Has anyone heard up or down from Murray State? **A: Campus visit scheduled via phone ~1/15. They told me they're bringing 3 finalists over the next 3 or so weeks. *WPI News? **A: Nope. I was interviewed at MLA and haven't heard from them since. At the interview, they did say explicitly not to despair if it was February and I still hadn't heard from them yet. Today's 2/3, so I imagine they're still deliberating. Not panicking yet... **Panicking now? (2/12) **Strangely enough, no. But I think that's due to some larger fatalism at this point. Two other post-MLA interview rejections, under perhaps suspicious circumstances, have made me quite the existentialist. I mean, we're all going to die in the end anyway, right? So what's another rejection? Just another event on the way to death. No problems. (2/12) **I like your attitude. Trying to develop that myself. **Rejection by mail 2/12; letter dated 2/11. I interviewed at MLA. (x2 -- from the existentialist, who has now struck out on all MLA interviews) *Anyone heard anything about the Providence job? **Providence has done campus visits, but I don't know if they have made an offer yet. ** Does anyone know if an offer has in fact been made?
