List NEW information at top.

  • University of Toronto, Mississauga: (5/7) accepted
  • Hamilton College, Clinton, New York, Visiting Instructor/Assistant Professor of Hispanic Studies – Latin American literature and cultures: Search cancelled (first hand, reliable) (5/5)
  • has any one heard from univ, of nevada of reno's offer? R1: Try to aske them directly. I am receiving answers from all the institutions that I am contacting about updates on my application status
  • Princeton Lecturer (4/7): Declined
  • University of Delaware (4/17) (second hand, reliable) Q: Was this the position at the Newark or Wilmington campus? Q again: It must be for the Wilmington job, becuase a decision has not yet been made for the position at the Newark campus (first-hand).  R1: Yes, for Wilmington. R2: University of Delaware (Newark) made a decision and notified candidates on April 30th (5/5)
  • University of Virginia (Lecturer of Spanish) (4/11)
  • Bates College (3/30) accepted. R1: Is this for the visiting position?
  • The UF alumna mentioned in this thread got one of their lecturer positions. So someone here wasn't wrong... R1: Or the alumna was a strong applicant. Either way, she's a human being who can read the ugly comments that were posted about her on this wiki. R2: The alumna may be as strong as a stone but this represents a conflict of interests. We are also human beings who can see how unethical and unprofessional hiring practices go in that department as if it were nothing. No worries, though. You will be in a suitable environment. The chair and the graduate coordinator meet the same 3 S's or the Readiness Standards to be there - Submissive, Smiley, and above all Sly. R3: I had no interest in that position but hiring alumni talks really bad about a department, no matter how good they are; inbreding is the exact opposite of what we all as academics should do: disseminate our knowledge, experience, and training. R4. I totally agree with you. Nepotism is just one of the many disgusting things happening in that department. They work like a mafia ready to do what it takes to secure promotion and more money in their pockets. Abuse of power. Favoritism. Unpunished sexual misconduct. Selective dismissal of students commiting plagiarism. Taking advantage of students without visas to keep them obedient, coming even from Spaniards who forget that they are also immigrants in this country who got their residency upon marriage with Americans. Derogatory comments on students and colleagues through working email. Arbitrary decisions to advance personal agendas. Bullying and marginalization of students and colleagues who don't align with their nastiness. The list is never-ending. R5. One can understand that crisis in academe isn't due to economic reasons only, but also to many academics themselves. A bunch of dilettantes took advantage of the good years when a tenure-track job was relatively easy to get in language departments and found their way here. Once many of these people got tenured, their productivity decreased and then sat back to enjoy their wages without doing much. These are the people who have populated a large part of colleges and who used to hire people of their academic level or lower to keep privileges and their piece of power. Yeah, submissive, smiley, and sly colleagues necessary to keep those privileges unchallenged. By the time the economic crisis hit the job market, this situation became pretty obvious. This is particularly true in language departments, thus the unfortunate times we are living now. The humanities has dug their own grave thanks to these people you have described. R6 to R4: are you describing UF or a large flagship university in a neighboring state? R7: I'm describing the Spanish department in the large flagship university in Florida. R8: This is not the first time UF does this, at the same time, they are not the only ones. Sadly. R9. Just some facts in the last few years. A brilliant linguistics professor left the department (a mass exodus of graduate students followed). A literature professor decided to quit her tenure-track job and even go back to her country (new graduate students' academic level dropped by a mile thereafter); the previous lower-division coordinator left after one year there, and the administrative coordinator also left after one year. The latter position remains vacant after this year's search. Let's see how long the new hires can put up with the department's toxic environment. R11 to R10: You forgot to mention that many students have withdrawn the program because they learned that either it's a waste of time or they were admitted because the department had no choice. A clear example of racial bias was when an American MA graduate died in a car accident and the chair decided to create an award after the student's name to recognize students who struggle in the program (!) However, when a tenured Colombian professor died of a heart attack, no award was created after his name. R13: jobs must be for americans and not for foreign students!. Are you not satisfied with already recieved a free education and stipend in american public universities? What else do you want? the green card? and citizenship? R14: Sure! Kick all foreign researchers, professors and students out of all departments in the US academia and then check their level of competitevess. Why don´t you blame your own mediocrity instead others´ citizenship? R15: ha! I completely agree with R14. R13 has a poor enough command of English as is. Either it is someone pretending to be writing in English or they are just that bad in their own mother language. And if that's the case, yikes!! You won't find a job like that, pal! R13&14 JIJIJIJIJI, sure you are a nobel laureate. No more jobs for Spaniards nor for latin american extranjeros! R16 to R13. Look for a job at Trump University, you will fit right in! R17. This person may be kidding but what he or she says is true regardless of your political affiliation. The hierarchy is clear - Americans>Spaniards>Latin Americans. The only difference is that telling this makes you a Trumpist; hiding this with equal oportunity fake statements makes you 'inclusive.' 
  • C of Holy Cross (email from chair that position's been filled) Has someone noticed that a visiting professor (since 2017 according to his CV) who does Caribbean lit hadn't been listed as such on the faculty website and now he is? Also, the word Caribbean doesn't show up anywhere in his research interests description, but Philippines, Cuba, and Puerto Rico do... FROM INSIDE: he was running for the position, but he was not the one who who got the offer. The search was honest.
  • Bowling Green State University - accepted
  • University of Toronto (Luso-Brazilian) accepted
  • Williams College (3/20) accepted
  • DePauw University (3/20) accepted
  • Cal State LA (3/18) accepted
  • University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) - two offers made for both lecturer (just Spanish) positions Q: But no word on the combined Span/Port position yet? To Q1: I thought the Span/Port job was at U of Chicago and not UI - Chicago. Or is it both? Q1: I know that University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) was conducting searches for both Spanish-only and Spanish/Portuguese lecturers. That's the one I was referring to, which is separate from anything the University of Chicago may be hiring for. R1: I was invited for an interview with U. of Illinois at Chicago (port), but, was uninvited after they asked me if I would need a visa sponsorsip and i told them yes. R2 to R1: I'm so sorry. I wish they would have asked applicants that before inviting them to an interview at all. Lecturer positions are unlikely to offer visa sponsorship but tenure-line positions usually do. And if you are in the process of requesting your OPT, that's something to mention to committees, too. R3 to Q1 and Q2: UIC conducted two different lecturer searches this year, one for two positions in just SPAN, and one for one position in SPAN/PORT; I believe (through the grapevine) that all offers have been sent and that the SPAN/PORT one was offered to a candidate on the East Coast. All the best.

Campus Interviews[edit | edit source]

  • UC Riverside (3/5, email-- virtual visit) R1: Congrats!!
  • Wake Forest (2/27) Q: Email or phone call? A: Email

  • University of Maine at Farmington, Latin American/Peninsular (1/28): 2 Q1: Email or phone call? R1: Phone call
  • John Carroll (1/28) R1: Congratulations! May I ask you if you have residency? I was very disappointed when they asked me about the type of visa I have. R1: Yes, I do. I'm sorry to hear that; that is disappointing indeed. R2: Same here. Although I nailed the interview (the Chair emailed me the questions a few days before the interview ¡¡??), reading between the lines I knew they weren't going to sponsor me a visa. So, why did they interview people who actually are not real candidates? Pointless and stupid. Everyone wasting their time. R3: HR might not have let them post that restriction in the job ad, but the committee is also not allowed to "read between the lines" when looking at applications and guess at who may or may not have permission to work at their institution without sponsorship before inviting people for phone interviews. I know that doesn't make it any better or less of a waste of your time. I imagine the committee is also frustrated when they lose great applicants because of their institution's policy. R4: Yes, that is true in many cases, but in this particular one the application questioned about whether or not the applicant needed sponsonship, and the committee knew it because they asked me directly what type of visa I would need.

I do believe you and wish those candidates the best. The phrasing just made me laugh a little, and not in a bad way, and I hoped a funny comment would speak the voice in other's minds too when they read it.)

I was the one who posted it originally, I was going through a paranoic stage. I don't think my suspicions had any basis. ¡Adelante! OP: Thank you! And no worries, extensive job hunting does that to all of us. R2: This is a beautiful area of the country. I hope you get a campus invite! R 3 I am curious abut what happened with Highlands. Did you get invited to the campus? Any news? I didn't apply, for which I am happy now, seeing the current situations, but still think it's a beautiful place. R 4 Well, I just checked if they had hired someone at New Mexico Highlands for the Spanish teaching position and the name of the VIP that has been teaching there for the last two years appears for Fall 2020. Didn't they find any suitable candidates? Was it a real search? I am curious because someone (first answer in this section) mentioned a Skype or phone interview on 3/3. Did anything come out of it? Highlands had issues with their accreditation and I am wondering if this had anything to do with the search, "if" there was one.

Word on the street[edit | edit source]

Q. Has anyone heard anything about the newly posted VAP of Spanish at Graceland University? They released the posting on 6/24 and they state they are looking for someone to "run the Hispanic Studies Program beginning August 2020." Odd? R1: Not entirely odd. It sounds like an HR delay compounded by the pandemic and related shutdown. Universities are getting a clearer idea of what the fall enrollment numbers will look like, so approval for 2020-2021 VAPs, lecturers, and adjuncts will have started, hence the rush of job posts. If Graceland is a small institution, then running the Hispanic Studies Program won't be as daunting as it would be at an R1 with a huge undergrad population, if that's your concern. Note that they mention the potential for it to be a TT, so they probably wanted that in the first place but didn't get approval or didn't have the right timeline. In your cover letter, in addition to all the other good stuff, speak directly to your experience with supervising language sections, developing curricula, and organizing speaker visits if you want to show them you can run that program. If you have a letter writer who can speak specifically to your preparedness to do that, see if they have time to work that into a revised letter of support. Look up as much information about the Hispanic Studies Program as you can and reference one or two areas where your experience would be a strength. Describe how you teach or would teach the two specialty areas they mention. And make reference to your preparation to teach the first-year seminar mentioned. You can get this job! R to R1. Thanks a lot for taking the time to write.  I do appreciate it! R1: They hired someone for a TT position around 3 years ago. I am guessing he's leaving. I had a skype interview with them back then. It's a very small university in a rural area. 

Q. Has anyone heard from University of Nevada Reno's Spanish lecturer position ? Was an offer made?

I recently found out that Colorado College hired a VAP in Spanish (very reliable) without posting the job anywhere, is that even legal??? R1 Are you a citizen from a socialist republic? In the U.S. a private institution can hire anybody it wants to any way it wants to. R2: Quite the opposite. In a socialist republic there is no job postings at all and jobs are offered to friends, acquaintances, and neighbors. Pretty straightforward without faking searches. Maybe that is true in Spain where academic endogamia is pretty standard with or without legal postings. Maybe Spanish immigrants have been importing these practices lately. It's time for them to be deported. R3 to R2. I read a comment below about how ignorant, uneducated, and ill-mannered is to say what you said. Though, back before 2008 crisis I remember that most Spanish used to say the same about immigrants in Spain, especially about "sudacas," who were condemned for "stealing their jobs and importing negative social practices." However, this opinion wasn't seen as ignorant, uneducated, and ill-mannered at the time. It was just true and that's it. Now that the Spanish are experiencing what sudacas have, they think they are hired because of their "superior" qualifications and, needless to say, they aren't stealing jobs from anybody. This is an ignorant, uneducated, and ill-mannered perspective, for sure. R4: Go Gators! R5: UF has such a nice work environment! A friend, who is currently living in Spain, once told me that when she first tried to apply for a job there with her PhD, a Spaniard said to her, "I don't go to your country to steal your jobs." And this was said by a professional, also with a PhD, not by someone who cleans restrooms in Atocha station. R6: KEEP AMERICA GREAT! R7: Yes! Spain, too, Plus Ultra! R8: @ todxs ¡Paz, amor y alegría! R9. Uy cómo se ponen cuando le dan un poco de su propia medicina. R10 to R11. I have interviewed and worked for/at a private institution and there's always been a search even if there's already an inside candidate. This speaks very poorly of CC. 

Q. Are international students still eligible to apply for OPT despite the current pandemic? I have come across several positions that clearly state that they will NOT sponsor an H1B, so the OPT would now be the only option. R1: I think the only problem you'd have is that, with the pandemic, the processing of the OPT will take much longer now and it is very unlikely that your card is issued before next academic year starts. Just make sure that OPT covers you for the whole academic year, otherwise they might rescind the offer. BTW, you don't need sponsorship for OPT, but you could also accept a job that offers you a J1 visa. R2: I had applied for OPT at the end of February and I received my card last week (4/15). I was worried that they would stop the process but...apparently they are still giving them. The whole process took less than 2 months, but they tell you it can take up to 5 months.

Q. Any idea of what's going on with Allegheny College? They posted a VAP position a couple of weeks ago and posted it again yesterday or the day before.. They also had a TT position available this year.... R1: The TT position in Latin American studies was offered and accepted, it was for an internal VAP. R2: The VAP advertised in April has been cancelled. R3: Well, talk about wasting a person's time. It seems a bit irresponsible to open a poistion in April, knowing there's a lot of desperation due to the pandemic, to then cancel in the same month.

Q. Does anyone know what happened to the search at SUNY Cortland? I've heard that the SUNY system is in a hiring freeze, but other SUNY universities are still hiring lecturers and adjuncts. So, I wondered... R1: There are still a lot of searches going on in the SUNY system. I don't know about the SUNY Cortland position in particular.

Q. Does anyone know what happened to the search at Northwestern (Colonial)? Did they make an offer? R1: Seems that yes, they did. R2: Do you know this for sure? R3: It was from a reliable source, so I would say second-hand yes, but I am not involved with that search directly.

Hiring freezes: Seen on Twitter, every area is contributing. Not exclusive for Spanish but I thought we could contribute and discuss it : https://t.co/Pbnhp1Fsiz?amp=1

Q. Any news on Catholic University of America after Skype Interview?

Q. Has anyone heard anything about the VAP position at Carleton? I had an Skype interview and haven't heard anything since. I'm wondering if they officially hired someone, if it is still ongoing or if it got cancelled due to COVID-19.

Q. Any news from NYU (peninsular)? R1: Search was canceled due to new budgetary caps to restrict spending. In fact, there is a hiring freeze in place for all positions until further notice.

Q. Does anyone know what happened to the search at Jacksonville University? Skype interviews took place in February but I didn't see anything else after that (no campus visits, no offers).

Q. Interesting to have received an email from U Maine Farmington about the search being cancelled. I didn't even get an interview with them and I thought they had made an offer (based on the information under Offers above). In any case, it sucks. R1. Did they mention why the search was canceled? Due to corona? R2: I had a campus visit and the head of the search committee just told me the search was cancelled due to COVID-19. She lead me to believe they didn't make any offers. R3 to R2: Second hand very very reliable: they made an offer, and it was rejected. R4: Another candidate accepted the offer (Peninsular) after the first candidate rejected it. Second hand reliable.

Heads up! Before putting together your dossier for Emory & Henry, just be aware that its Interfolio EOE form includes the poisonus question "Will you now, or in the future, need visa sponsorship...?" And we all know how that usually plays out. R1: They have cancelled the search.

Q: Nada de Wyoming? No, pero yo conozco al que estaba ahí y odió ese lugar. 

Q: Any news on U of Toronto?

Q: Any news on Lincoln University? 

Q: How many of you have had your campus interviews postponed due to corona virus? R1. I was offered to keep going with the interview. Will have a mock class with professors. Small lac, south. R2. Yes.

Q: Anything on Niagara University? R1. I emailed the chair of the search committee on February 25 and his response, at that time—in spite of the announcement saying the deadline for applications was March 1, was that the position had been filled. R2. I know someone got the offer, and I assume accepted it. 

Q: Any news on UNC Greensboro post campus visits?

For all the complaints I've seen on here about UF being nepotistic and favoring Spaniards, just thought y'all should know that I have no association with UF (nor am I Spanish) and I was offered one of their positions. I ultimately declined but still. :) R1: That's why they offered you the job, because of the complaints, or because they have already too many Spaniards or alumni. Let's see who's next in their list. R2 to R1: Is there any evidence you would accept as contradicting your understanding of the situation? We all have to be careful with confirmation bias. R3 to R2: Interesting. How about the many evidences that confirm the understanding of the situation? Would you accept them? Bias toward only one side of the situation? R4. As a UF student I can confirm that Spaniards are favored when it comes to funding and other professional opportunities. This trend isn't exclusive to this department, though. In US there is still an elitist belief that European Spanish is "better" than any Spanish spoken in LA. Many think that British English is better than American's, right? Same is true of peninsular Spanish. R5. Really? That hasn't been my experience at all. If anything, I would say I have seen LA being favored because it's closer to the Heritage populations and because of years of perceived bias against LA scholars! It must depend heavily on the program. R6: Really. Look at the most prestigious colleges and you'll see how Spaniards are preferred there. You yourself have said it all - "bias against LA scholars" (btw what is this bias about?) Anyways, one thing is being favored and another thing is the LA population in US compared to that of Spaniards, which it's 99% against 1%, so it's strinking that academic hiring statistics don't reflect this proportion. Maybe because Spaniards are favored and Spaniards (and Spaniard-prone Americans) mainly prefer hiring Spaniards? Who knows. R7. Nothing is written in stone. We had a half Spaniard here who was like the department's sweetheart. He won many awards, including the disability award for promptly finishing his diss after having a stroke because he couldn't cope with all of the department's expectations. His letters of recommendation must have been more than great. However, he ended up teaching English in Spain. On the other hand, two Latin American students whose advisors are particularly rejected in this department, got TT jobs with F1 visas. So anyone can get lucky and hit the jackpot regardless of their nationalities. R8. I was in the market for several years and this is not the first time I hear this from students and professors themselves. Their "favoritismo" for Spaniards is very clear. R9. Of course they are favored no matter how hard they try to conceal it with all that rhetoric about equal opportunity stuff. What is most interesting is how some try to discredit these claims by reversing the bias. Now denouncing racism has become racist...

Q: Any news on Cal State LA after campus visits?

Q: Has anyone heard anything from Central Washington or Prairie View? I know Prairie View has already started with preliminary interviews, but they said they were still vetting (according to an email I received from them recently). R1. Central Washington Online Interview 3/17 R1. Search was cancelled due to COVID-19 :(

Q: Any news on the UIC (University of Illinois - Chicago) two Spanish lecturer positions (not Span/Port lecturer, just Spanish)? They did online interviews nearly a month ago and I have yet to hear back. Thanks. A: I interviewed for the combined Span/Port job, and I also haven't heard back yet. 

Q: Anything on Wyoming's search? A: Not here. 

Q: Any news about Augustana College after Skype interviews? A1: They said this week but I imagine the change in the national situation with COVID19 has changed things a bit. Not sure how anyone does a campus visit right now. I'm wondering how this affects the hiring process at this point. Q2 at A1: They have contacted candidates for campus interviews? COVID19... Stay virusless everyone A1: I don't know if they have. They said in the Skype interviews they hoped to convene and make decisions this week. I'm saying I imagine the shut down of campuses across the country might have caused them to delay a decision if they're having to focus on other things and I wouldn't be surprised if it's later as I don't see many places hosting campus visits. A2: I think interviews and mock teaching via Webex or Zoom would be more likely. If things are postponed to try to have an in-person campus visit, the positions are likely to just directly be canceled, given the economic hit universities are taking as a result of COVID19.

Q: I do not see many job announcements now. Will this change? I was told that there were more positions last year. Is that true? Good luck to everybody on their job search. R1: It actually depends on what you are looking for: this year has been great for VAPs, Lecturers, and Instructors; it has not been too bad for Linguistics, SLA, and Education either; Literature and Culture... very meh. But trust me: I have been around for a while, it is not going to get any better from now on. R2: You'll see VAP and Lecturer positions continue to trickle through even during the summer for an August 2020 start, but tenure-line would be rare. The exception for new tenure-lines would be for linguistics positions in Europe (check Linguist List). Those are often called "Lecturers", but it's the approximate equivalent of US tenure-line.

Q: Did anyone else apply for the position at Lewis University in English Studies with a concentration on Latin American and Latinx lit? If so, any news? A1: I did along with Millersville and Incarnate Word. I know Incarnate wanted an English major from a very reliable source. The other two I've heard nothing from and haven't seen anything on the English jobs wiki either.

Q: Any news about Catholic University of America?

Q: Anything on Spelman College after emails? Thanks! A1: Not on my end. R2. Nothing here after last email. A3: I must admit that the question about the visa status made me somehow pessimistic about my chances. Q: Does anyone have knowledge on what's going on there?

Q. Anyone knows what happened with  Indiana U, Bloomington position (peninsular)?

Q. Any news about the visiting position at Reed College after Zoom interviews? 

Q. There are 3 universities listed in the "Offers" sections that do not say if they were accepted or declined. Do any of you have more information about those ones?, I am still waiting to hear back from one of those and it would be good to know. R1: U at Buffalo accepted, second hand reliable.

Q. Any international candidate is getting an offer / being sponsored? A1: Yes  - A2: it´s been tough. universities do not want to hire international students who will need sponsorship. I was uninvited from a university after receiving an email inviting me for an interview due to the fact that I would need them to sponsor me for the position. Things were easier for international students some years ago as far as I am concerned. A3: Agree with A2, but a colleague says they will sponsor their visa. I guess it depends on the position and the university, but it is a guessing game as not everyone clearly says that on the job posting. On that note, please, if you are part of a hiring committee now or in the future, please, remember to mention visa requirements in the position being posted (if it is required, if it will -or will not- be sponsored and so on). This saves us (and you) a lot of time, as we do not waste time working on a pointless application and you do not spend your time reading it. Sounds obvious but I have been through something similar to A2 a few times actually (mine were even before the phone interview, so I guess I avoided at least that further type of stress). It's a lot of resources being wasted on everybody's part. A4: Most universities cannot state they will not sponsor visas because it would contradict its mission and vision statements. Search committees are well aware of that and they read applications from international candidates and interview them, despite it is a waste of time, because keeping up apparences is deeply rooted in this culture. A5: Overall, I agree with what y'all have said. However, I know a few of international candidate who have gotten a job offer withing the two last years and the school sponsored them. I guess it depends on the school and the budget they have for new hires. A5: I am an international candidate and got a TT offer. If you get an offer, I recommend you negotiate an expedited H1B as part of your contract. A6. I work at a university (in Comparative Literature) that still offers the sponsorship if they hire a TT. The interview process does ask about the visa since it is mandatory from HR, but the committee does not take that into consideration from what I've heard as long as they can prove the hire is the "best" candidate. Half of the language department TT staff requires visas from what I can tell. If you require a visa, I hope it helps to know that not everyone will disqualify you automatically!

Q. Any news from Occidental after campus visits? 

Q. Any news from Princeton (peninsular)? A1: They made an offer (second hand reliable)


Q: Anyone knows if there is an internal candidate in Lincoln University? A1: I think everyone in the department is already either tenured or TT-track, so it doesn't seem likely...though their jumping to campus visits without an initial phone/video interview is odd.

Miami University had a really strong internal candidate; still, the job went to an external one. Thus, next time you want to terrorize the wiki with that "boogeyman", at least have the decency of using the "second hand, reliable" tool. Q: Where is this comment coming from? I do not see any mention of an internal candidate at Miami anywhere on the wiki but your comment. C2. There was a comment time ago in relation to an internal candidate in this institution. 

Not a question but an FYI. Cornell just re-posted their lecturer job. Apps are due March 13th. They already had invited 4 candidates to campus in the hopes of filling the 2 open lecturer positions, but it seems they did not hire any of the candidates and instead decided to open back up the search. It seems odd that they did not fill at the very least one of the open positions, so who knows what they are actually looking for. 


Q: Anything from Connecticut College post campus visit? a1. nothing here

Q: Have anyone heard from Maryland Eastern Shores? Anything?

Q: Anything on Ouachita Baptist? Anything on Samford, Alabama? 

Q: Anything on Lawrence University post Skype interviews? They were at the beginning of January. A1: I have not heard anything, but I imagine they invited candidates for campus interviews. A2: I didn't apply for this job so have no skin in the game but I can't imagine campus visits haven't happened yet if Skype interviews were beginning of January. Likely the invitees don't read the wiki or don't post. Maybe not but it's almost March.

R: William & Mary medievalist position. This ended up being a failed search (they will likely run it again in the fall - second hand). Like some positions that show up every year or every couple of years, a major factor in retaining faculty is salary that doesn't match cost of living. Q: What happened with the other one (Indigenous studies)? R: It was given to one of the VAP's R2: I don't think that is true. First, jobs aren't just "given" to people, they interview for them and even as an internal candidate, they work very hard. Secondly, there are no VAPs there with a expertise in Indigenous Studies. 

Q: Any word from Prairie View A&M University? A1: nothing yet

Q: Any word from Pacific University in Portland? A1: Yeah, a big no for me. They did this last year where they "accidentally" posted a job opening then canceled within a day or two. OP: Just got my email rejection today too. A2 I got my rejection today too. A3: I got a rejection too. A4:  I also received a rejection email. It doesn't seem like an accidentally posted job would include official correspondence, though. A1 to A4: This search seemed more legit than last year but we'll see if anyone posts about getting an interview of some kind. Last year they definitely posted a job search on accident though. A5: how does one post a job by accident, though? I mean, I am positive it isn't ready to go with the click of a button. Maybe they received the ok to hire but then something fell through?

Ok. Since the time for parading all of our nastiness has started, and considering the avalanche of offers accepted we have seen this week, how about we play a game calling out on the most bogus searches of this season?. No need to justify or explain anything, it can be out of sheer pettiness. Shoot! R1: Where was this last year? Ha! Brilliant idea.

A Colombian alumna is one of the finalists for the lecturer position at UF. They love her because she's the typical submissive, smiley, crafty individual they prefer here. It'd be no surprise if she gets the job given the nepotistic tradition in this department. R1: Your comment is both racist and misogynist. R2 to R1: And your comment tries to distort the main point of my comment to discredit it. R3. Yesterday I commented on this post and my answer was deleted. This kind of post is not helpful nor supportive. Let's see from another perspective: may be the Department at UF knows the previous and current work of that candidate, and they consider her their best option. R4: Well, this entire thread was deleted for some arcane reason. This section is for "Word on the street," so not sure how and why letting know about a preferred candidate in a job search isn't helpful. Let's try another perspective - if the department knows her previous current and previous job, then there is an obvious bias that disadvantages other candidates. This means that candidates aren't equally considered and this goes against our principles of equality and inclusion. R5: I don't think knowing about preferred candidates isn't necessarily unhelpful, but that's how job searches go in any field or industry. From a search committee's perspective, they're taking a chance on whoever they're hiring, and there's certainly a sense of safety if going with someone they already know and like. That said, I don't think most search committee members would overlook far more qualified candidates just for the sake of hiring someone familiar. I have a friend who was a finalist for a non-TT position at her alma mater; she had strong ties to the department was beloved by her colleagues; she didn't get the job because they thought one of the other candidates was ultimately more qualified. R6: Submissive, smiley, and crafty? Please consider that that candidate is likely aware of this jobs wiki and has read your comment. You're attacking the individual person's character much more than that of the department.

Q: Anything on Northwestern after Campus Visits?  

Q: Any word on Jacksonville University after the phone interviews? R: They are contacting references for the on-campus interviews. Q2: Is this coming from a committee member, or are you a candidate who was contacted? Thanks!

Q: Anything on Augustana College? R: Nothing yet  R2: Nothing here. Checked the status of my application and the system says the position has been closed. R3:: Speaking of bogus searches, the department needed to advertise this position nationally but it is clear that it was just opened for the Continuing Lecturer in Spanish working there (who is the spouse of a TT professor in the same department). At least, they wiggled out of doing any fake campus visits. R4. Coincidentally, someone just listed a Skype interview with Augustana. R5: I also checked the status of my application on the website and it says “closed” as R2 mentioned. It is wierd to say the least that they close the search while it is still “in progress.” R6: Any more interview requests from Augustana today?

Q: Any news from U of Texas - Arlington after campus visits?

Q: Anything on Spelman? Thanks!  R. No. Nada de nada R2. If I read the fine print for the position correctly, they were looking for someone who would be able to start in January—it said "immediately" somewhere. However, if my reading is incorrect, I can also confirm: nada por aquí tampoco. R3: The January start was for a part time instructor. I was contacted about that. I have a feeling the TT job isn't happening this period.

Q: Anything from Arizona State post-campus visits? Offer was made and accepted.

Q: Any news on the Cal State Monterey Bay position? The deadline was in mid-Jan, but they reposted the ad a few days ago. C1: I sent my app., but never got an interview so probably they are looking for some profile they didn't get in the first round? Just guessing...

Q: Any news on University of Scranton? R1: Zoom interviews took place last week.

Q: Any news from Dominican University after the Zoom interview? R1: Nothing yet. I am wondering as well!

The Spanish lit position at Ohio State U seems to be for a candidate who was an advisee of a former OSU graduate working at the Univ. of FL

Q: Any news from Texas Tech?

Q: Anything on Catholic University of America?

Q: Any news from New Mexico Tech after campus visits? 

Q: Any news from Baylor University? R1.No nothing R2. I heard they sent emails for campus visit for the literature position.

Q: Any news on the Portuguese position at Notre Dame after campus visits? 

Q: Any news from University of Wisconsin-Parkside after Canvas-interviews? A1: I emailed them, and they said they just got permission to contact candidates for campus interviews and would be sending out invites soon. C1: Thanks, compañerx, and good luck!

Q: Anything on Cal State LA campus visits? R1: They requested transcripts and called my references a few weeks ago, but nothing since then...R2: Thank you! For me too.

Q: Any news from Westpoint (Spanish)? A1: I've been stalking the wiki all weekend because they said they would let interviewees know by Friday but I haven't seen or heard anything. R2: Same! Very strange.  Q2: Has there been a round of interviews for this one already? Skype or phone calls? R3: I worked at West Point teaching Spanish for 4 years and can tell you that they are extremely slow and unorganized and suffer from lack of communication and transparency. Just a heads up. R4:  Sorry for the delay; I did receive a phone interview invitation via email on Feb. 6th. I did not learn about a visit or was not invited, however.

Q: Any news about the Xavier TT position? R1: Last year they had an inside candidate. Now they are just offering that person a TT position, but they needed to complete a formal search.

Q: Anyone hear anything whether as a candidate or knowing someone there about Southeastern Louisiana? Deadline was Dec. 1. R1: This is the third time that Southeastern Louisiana has advertised that position (or at least a position with similar characteristics, you can check the previous wikis); thus, I would take the opening for this year with a grain of salt. R2: It actually is a legit position. I was offered last year, but due to some family circumstances had to decline. R3: With all due respect, you are pointing at something that is even worse than having a bogus search. They preferred to open a new search rather than moving to the person who came second? Basically they wasted the other two candidates' time. R4: Or all three candidates declined, or had campus interviews that were disqualifying.

Q: Any news on UVA after campus visits? 


Q: Any word on Umass Lowell after the Skype interviews? (Peninsular) R1: No :( Did you hear anything this week?

You too.


Q: Any word from Cal State San Marcos? R1.I saw on the englisah wikithat they have already invited for camous visit. R2: That seems a bit quick considering the position description close date was Jan. 20. Am I incorrect on that?

R3 to R1: It's a position in the Department of History whose deadline was Oct. 15. OP: Anything yet?

Q: Any news on UIC TT in Early Modern after December's interviews?

Q: Any news on Cal State LA post Zoom interview?R1Not an answer to the question, but I was wondering if the ones that got interviews could share a bit about their profile.

I have language (including heritage speakers) and literature (Peninsular) teaching experience, but few publications. Any feedback for future searches is appreciated. Thanks and good luck! R2: See answer below in "Free Advice". R3 I am PhD. Also with teaching experience in both. Some publications.

R2: Of those three I only applied to West Point, and I haven't heard anything. R3: There is a Spanish job for West Point. I applied to that one and also have heard nothing. The department is Foreign Languages and if the same committee is doing the search for both the Spanish and the Portuguese positions, I thought this info might help. Good luck!

R2: Are you talking about the Lecturer or Assistant Professor position? R: TT position. R3:Recibí una notificación de que no he pasado a la siguiente fase. En mi experiencia, la entrevista fue muy divertida y alentadora. El comité de selección está haciendo un gran trabajo. Suerte a los que pasen a campus visiting!!!! R4: Creo que ya terminaron los campus visits

Q: Anything on when UVa will invite candidates for campus interviews? R1: No. All they said was "you'll hear from us soon" in the interview. Going on 3 weeks later, even with the holidays, I'm thinking they may have invited already.

I received an acknowledgement email on 11/25 and haven't heard back since.

Q: Any info on the Indiana U position in Modern Iberian? R1: Nope. R2: Me neither. R3. Me neither (Dec 25). R4: Me neither (Jan 2). R5:Tey are conducting two campus interviews (Jan. 22). A6: It looks like my application was never downloaded since it is still "on progress". 

Q: Any news from UF after the zoom interviews? Or did they mention to anyone that they should expect to hear back by a certain date? R1: Nope. They didn't mention it to me and I haven't heard anything. R2: I got an email from them the other day saying they will decide on campus visits in early January. Q2: When they sent that email, was it in response to an email you sent, or did they inform you that you were a finalist and that they'd let you know when your interview would be in January? (Hope that made sense). R2 again: Sorry, just saw this. No, I didn't send them an email - they reached out to me. They didn't say I was a finalist though - it was sort of vague. Just that they were impressed and they asked me to wait to hear from them for a bit longer. I haven't heard anything since though.

Q: Any news on Boston University? Medieval / Early Modern position. R: They already had the campus visits last week of November (very reliable)

Q: Any news on  SIU after the Skype interviews? R1: Nothing here. But they said there would likely be no news from them for a number of weeks.

Q: Any news on UC Davis? R1: I haven't heard anything. 

I just saw a position advertised at Highlands in Las Vegas NM. Asking for a PhD in Spanish Linguistics which is (surprise!) what the current visiting professor is--an ABD actually. I am wondering if it is for real. R1: What is the point of a post like this? Inside candidates exist. They are like you and me, working hard to get a tenure-track position. Universities are required to have searches. I don't see how your post contributes anything but bitterness. R2: I didn't get any bitterness from the poster's question; they probably just wanted to know whether or not it was worth investing time in applying for that job. To answer the question: unless someone can reliably confirm whether or not there is an inside candidate, there's really no way of knowing, and perhaps it's best to just take a chance and apply. R3: These kinds of questions reflect, in my opinion, a lack of guidance from advisors about what a search looks like and what to expect as an applicant/candidate. There are many reasons an institution has a VAP who holds the qualifications for which a department runs a TT search. For example, they had a departure but still needed to teach classes already on the schedule. Hence, hire a visiting  is a simple solution until they can run a search. The loss of a TT line or addition is a big deal, often with budgetary implications, so a VAP is much easier to get for a short term or as a way to convince leadership of a TT need. The search may also have a different specialty or training area in mind, now that they can re-hire. Those are things you won't know unless you apply and when you interview. I would encourage anyone worried about internal candidates to stop. They do exist, but if you don't apply, you cannot even be considered, and at the very least, won't gain the needed experience to make it through this tight market , i.e., from crafting competitve documents to interviewing strategies. R4: VAPs as inside candidates seem to be 50/50. Last year I did a campus visit to a place with a VAP and that person(the VAP) was not hired as the TT Asst Prof. Then at another place, the VAP did get the job. It's worth it to apply because your cover letter might turn the heads of the committee and that's all you need. When I did my telephone interview with the committee, they specifically cited some points I made in my cover letter as being the reason they wanted to talk to me. R5: I think the bitterness that some saw in the original post comes from the soul-killing process of having to solicit recommendation letters over and over, tweak and twist the CV so it fits whatever they are asking for, and the uncertainty that comes after not even getting an interview though you think you have a fair chance.  Paz y suerte. R6: I agree with R4. VAPs are sometimes inside candidates and sometimes not. I've seen it go both ways. I've also known a VAP who was assumed to be an inside candidate who didn't even apply to the TT line, because the place was so miserable. It's stressful to have to tweak docs endlessly, so I get the concern, but it would also be sad to lose out on a job for not trying. As far as letters of recommendation go, if your writers are not willing to write letters year after year, they are not doing their job. It's a lousy market. You taught for low wages for years to subsidize a broken system. The LEAST a tenured faculty member who got prestige points for "training you" can do is write letters while you try to get a job.

Q: Is there anyone worried for not having received any interviews yet? Is it common? Should I be worried about it? R1: I didn't get any interviews yet. R2: It's true that most candidates have already been contacted for research-focused TT positions. However, positions will be posted and interviews scheduled after the holidays for teaching-focused positions, visiting positions, renewable term contracts, etc. I was interviewed in early April for the teaching-focused TT position I currently hold. 

Q: Any news on Florida Atlantic University? R1: They extended invitations for visits.

Q: It's not listed on this wiki, but did anyone else apply for the Mexicanist position at Cal State Channel Islands? The application was due in early October, and on the application website it says my app is still "under review." Just wondering if anyone has heard anything about that position. Thank you. R1: I haven't heard anything yet.

Q: Any news on UTSA campus visits? R1: I had a Zoom interview for that one and the search will have on campus visits in December. But I have not heard anything back one way or the other. OP: Same here. They probably already extended invitations given the timeline. Good luck!

Q: Any news on Northwestern (colonial)? A1: Nothing here since the request for a writing sample. Someone listed a Skype interview above, but that may have been for the peninsular position.

Q: Any news from Jacksonville University, after the additonal materials requested? R1: No news since then. A: Phone interview requests went out today.

Q: Any news from Haverford College? 

Q: Any news from the College of Idaho? 

Q: Any news from the full time Spanish instructor position at Suffolk University? Deadline was 11/22...It's probably too soon I guess...


Q: Someone posted that New Mexico State University had notified them they had not been selected for an interview. Has anyone received an email from NMSU asking for an interview? A1: I was confused by no one posting but I know they have chosen the skype/phone interview candidates(second hand very reliable). Q2: Does this definitely mean that they contacted the skype/phone interview candidates or that they have just chosen them? A1: They have not had interviews yet but have chosen the interviewees (second hand reliable). A2: They already contacted the candidates via phone call.

Q: Any news from California Lutheran University after interviews? R1: I haven't heard back yet. R2: Did they give you any timeline? R1: I think they said 1-2 weeks. Tomorrow will be exactly 2 weeks. You? R2: They told me 2-3 days haha. Weird R1: Let's hope we hear something after Thanksgiving. Best of luck with this and any other applications you have out there. R2: Thanks. You too!

Q: Any news from Simmons University? The deadline was 11/15...I haven't heard anything yet and the status of my application says only received. I wonder if any of you know more about it. A1: Same here. 

Q: Any news from Hope College after Skype interviews last week?

Q: Inside candidate at UNC-Greensboro? A1: I'm pretty sure there is. Q: Does this mean that they won't even call for interviews? A1: It's possible they have to for protocol but they won't be very engaging, at least that's been my experience in the past with places that have someone in mind. They go through the steps they have to. Q2: A1, are you assuming that because there's a Visiting Assistant Prof, that that person is the inside candidate? A1: No.

Q: Any news on William & Mary? A: (They are on campus visit stage.) A2: They have 3 candidates who will visit campus from Dec. 1 to Dec. 15. and want to make a decision before year's end. Campus interview is pretty average: fly in one evening, campus tour next day, meeting with the dean, meeting with students (lunch), job talk in the later afternoon, followed by an interview with Hispanic Studies faculty, dinner with faculty and fly out the next day. Those who got Skype interviews but didn't get campus visit have not been notified of rejection. Q2: Is this for the Indigenous Studies or Medieval position? Thanks. A3: Medieval. 

Q: There is a Wiki page for Luso-Hispanic Journals that is not being used. If you have information on how the process of submission for journals in the field went, the time of response and publication, quality of review, among other things, please, submit it to this page: https://humanitiesjournals.fandom.com/wiki/Hispanic_Studies_Journals R1: It's probably because hispanists.org already has something similar.

Q: For the U Arkansas Golden Age job, just to confirm, the deadline was Friday Nov.15 but the requests for additional materials requests were made on Monday Nov. 18? R1: Yes. R2: Same here. I got the request for writing sample on Monday, Nov. 18.

Q: Which of the Universtiy of Illinois, Chicago positions had the Skype intereview request on 11/21? R1:: Early Modern.

Q: Any ABD's getting interviews? R1: Not me, unfortunately. Still hoping. R2: Yes, I got two. R3: I'm ABD and I've been contacted for 1 interview so far. R4: I'm ABD, I have been contacted for 1 interview. R5: Yes, I got one. R6: It is still pretty early. For positions with Oct. 31/Nov.1 close dates, those committees are probably still working through applications. It can take weeks to get through the applications, propose a list, get approval for said list, get tech support for Skype interviews, compare calendars, etc. Don't get discouraged!! R7: I want to echo R6: don't be discouraged if you haven't heard anything yet. When I was ABD I didn't get my first phone call until mid-December. It's easy to check this wiki obsessively (I do it all the time), but the best advice is to try to enjoy the Thanksgiving break knowing that search committees are probably getting ready to do the same. They will resume their search in high gear the week after for sure. Best of luck to all. R8: Thank you both for being so kind, all the best as well, and I hope some ABDs report back with good news! R9: Yes, I'm ABD and have been contacted about 4 so far. Mucha suerte a todos!! It's still pretty early. R10: What an amazing community. Really encouraging thoughts. Thank you. All the best for everyone. R9: Yes, I am an ABD with a current Instructor position and I've had 2 TT interviews.

Q: Has anyone heard from Xavier University? R1: Nothing yet. R2: Just recieved an email today about a Zoom interview the second week of December. R: R1 here...Congratulations, that is fantastic. R2: Thank you! Good luck to you on everything.

Q. Has University of Pittsburgh closed their applications for Brazilianist earlier? I was pretty sure the due date was November 22nd and now it says it was Nov 15th. R1: I noticed this as well - on the description it said the 22nd but in interfolio it was listed as the 15th. 

Q. Has anyone heard from Haverford? R1: I haven't heard anything yet. R2: They have contacted for Skype interviews. R3: Is R2 reliable?

Q. Any news on the UC San Diego job? R1: I have heard nothing yet. R2: Me either. Hoping to at least know something soon. 

Q. How did the University of Utah requested the LORs? Did they contact directly to the recommenders? R1: I received an email explaining that they were requesting the LORs as a second round, and for the third round they would invite people to interview.

Q. Does anyone have any information on the Cal State Fullerton Golden Age position? The position closed on October 1st but the listing was just reposted today (11/12) on Higher Ed Jobs, and the closing date in the new listing is still October 1st. R1: No information, but that is strange. I haven't heard a thing from them and applied well before the Oct. 1 deadline. R2: They have already interviewed the selected candidates (second hand, reliable). R3: I had a phone interview. They told me that they would contact selected candidates last week or this week, but I haven't heard from them. I think they must have selected their candidates for the campus interview. R4: They are already going through campus visits. 

Q. Has anyone heard anything from Puget Sound? R1: I received an email requesting an interview today.

Q. Has anyone heard anything from Connecticut College? R1: Nothing here. R2: Just received an email today (11/21) requesting an interview. Posted above in interview section as well. 

Q. Any news on Holy Cross after the Skype interview? Q2 Any news? R. Not here, but I guess they must have already sent invitations for campus visits. Any news?


Q. There is an inside candidate for the Spanish lecturer position at the University of Florida, a Spaniard of course. It's likely for another former graduate to get the second lecturer position. // R: This is not a productive attitude, it exudes xenophobic prejudices. You might find another forum to wind up all your frustrations. The job search is a difficult and staignant process for everyone. Insiders exist and have no passports, they are just insiders that hiring people want to work with in a certain enviromment. Like it or not, at least please leave nationality aside, this is an inclusive, collaborative and respectful venue. R: It's interesting to see how you try to reverse the xenophobic bias here. There is a clear evidence of preference for Spaniards in that department, which carries an implicit scorn for Latin American students. This is the actual xenophobia. It's also fun that when someone tells an obvious truth, this is because of someone's frustrations. Jobs aren't offered for anybody to get passports. If insiders exist, why then to advertise a position and play with many people who are also facing the same difficulties? Telling about a preference for a nationality in this department doesn't make anyone xenophobic, rather it's that preference itself that is xenophobic and racist in the first place, like it or not. So please, go elsewhere with that phony statement of inclusiveness, collaboration, and respect. You know that's just BS.R2: This line is getting tired. Weren't you on here last year with the same issue? Did you personally get burned down there or something? It seems like it. You do realize that most departments, even if there is a preferred inside candidate, are required to do a search by Human Resources? Sure, it's frustrating from the outside, but if it's the requirement, what do you suggest they do? And I'm also not sure why the rampage against Spaniards, because I know plenty of them are without jobs as well. The system is rigged against everyone. R4: Tergivérsalo como quieras, o manípulalo para desestimar el sentido real del comentario porque te pone el dedo en la llaga. Ese "Spaniard" solo significa que ese departamento prefiere contratar españoles, ni más ni menos. Si te ha repugnado será por otra cosa que callas o prefieres ignorar porque es incómodo. Pero puedo entender que denunciar algo repugnante no puede generar sino repugnancia. R5. I don't know if you're literature or linguistics, but in my field (linguistics), there are plenty of non-Spaniards on faculty so this whole line seems confusing. Are you only talking about lecturers? Isn't that a hard enough life without conspiracy theories? R6. Agreed with OP! Let Spaniards go back to their shit hole country. They are stealing our jobs. R7 to R6. I just wish you to get the job of your dreams, in which you can put into practice your good education, good manners, and values. R8 to R5. Qué asco de comentario, por Dios. Espero que estés bromeando (aunque sería una broma de mal gusto). Si bien estoy de acuerdo con que existe favoritismo para con los españoles (lo viví desde la grad school porque soy latinoamericano) no creo que se deba botar a nadie y peor usando esas palabras. Denuncia a los que realizan tal favoritismo -quienes muchas veces son anglos-no al que está buscando un trabajo como todos nosotros. Suerte a todos. 


Q: Any news on New Paltz? Q: News as in at all or have they scheduled some sort of interview? I applied and am curious too. A: Calls went out for interviews, second hand, reliable. A2: Oh good, nothing like finding a job description that matches your research perfectly and not being able to get just a skype interview.

Q: Any information about the Buffalo State translation position? Has anyone heard back about an interview? R1: It only closed on Nov 4th.

Q: Any information about the position at Boston College? Looking at the Department website, I'm wondering if it's for an inside candidate... R1: No info on that position, but apply anyway with the best materials you can put together. R2: I agree with R1, apply with the best stuff you've got, but I had the same thought with 3 VAP's there. I know of several places that didn't hire their VAP and went elsewhere so it's worth it to apply if you are interested in the position.

Q: Looks like Columbia re-opened the same search as last year (and the year before, and the year before that)--anyone know anything about what they're looking for? R1: I think we can safely say they have no idea what they want but have a lot of money for endless searches.

Rejections[edit | edit source]

List NEW information at top. NMTech (5/18) I just got a rejection letter from NMTech in Socorro. I had applied way back in October and only got an acknowledgment of materials so it was clear by now that I wasn't a candidate. Letter was nice, but why bother at this time? And it was a physical letter, not an email. Weird.

  • UC San Diego (5/12). I didn't hear from them until now, letting me know I'm not a finalist. I had a Zoom interview last year. The email was very nice.

R2: I also received a rejection email saying that 'due to COVID-19 pandemic' they wouldn't be able to hire me'hahah thank you for letting me down easy after I literally saw that you hired someone else. Great excuse though.

  • California Lutheran University (12/20) x 5 (like we didn't already know, lol). R1: I'm sorry to hear. I'm curious about this comment; I had a phone interview and sensed some strange vibes. R2 to R1: What kind of strange vibes? I had the same feeling about it. I wasn't invited to visit campus but haven't received the rejection email yet. So weird. R1 to R2: I wasn't invited to campus either. I admit that it wasn't my best interview, but tbh it felt like I was speaking to robots. Just zero interpersonal connection. I was cut off in the middle of an answer. They gave a very uninspired answer the very straightforward question I posed at the end. As soon as it started I got the sense they weren't interested. Again, I readily admit that I probably didn't perform very well, but still, it makes things a lot more difficult when the people you are speaking with give off an energy like they'd rather be doing something else. What about you? R2 to R1: I had a very similar experience. As you admitted, my interview was probably the worst I've had so far. The chair seemed especially cold and distant, and the rest of the committee's reactions to my answers were close to none. There was only one person, I think she was the chair of the department, who behaved as a human with emotions instead of a robot lol. Have you received a rejection email? R3: Just to clarify, I did not get an interview at all, which is why I said, "like we didn't already know" because people here reported getting an interview. That being said, sorry to hear it was a negative experience. I had a similar one last year with a university. They seemed very disinterested and like they didn't want to be there (one person was off camera and never showed her face), and it made it very difficult to carry on with the interview. R1 to R2: Sorry to hear your experience with Cal Lutheran was similar. Shame. I did not receive any rejection email. And to the person who in the end receives and accepts the offer: I hope working there is a positive experience and that the experiences described here are not reflective of the way things work there. Best of luck! R4: I got the rejection email as well, but I didn't get an interview with them. Suerte!

Free advice (especially for colleagues new to the market)[edit | edit source]

Advice for people job hunting outside of academia: On June 26 at 2pm Eastern (US Time), the Hispanic and Lusophone Linguistics Virtual Colloquium will hold a discussion on how to translate your experience and preparation for a job hunt in the private sector. You need to sign up to get the Google Meet link. Here is the upcoming event list. https://hllvirtualcolloquium.weebly.com/upcoming-events.html

Advice for not native speakers: Make sure you are immersing yourself in Spanish or Portuguese, whichever is relevant, every day for three to four hours. Phone interviews can range from 10% Spanish to 100% Spanish, same with campus interviews. An otherwise strong candidate won't make it past the phone interview if their language skills are rusty from not teaching recently, not having people to practice with, or not having practice explaining academic topics in Spanish. R1: Completely agree! (and that goes for campus visits, too) R2: True for not native speakers of English, too!

Please! Remind a colleague that it is in very bad taste to contact the Search Committee and ask about results, even if your visit was several weeks ago! Asking for a friend. R. Is this a question? Or an advice? Do people ask for results? Or one has to wait till the search committee reaches out to one? It was my understanding that it is polite to sent a thank you email and ask for feedback after the visit. Also, we know about many of the offers listed above because people have emailed the search committee. My questions will be:1)  is it ok to thank the committee and ask for feedback after a visit? 2) How to deal with multiple offers? R2: This sounds like advice. To R1: It's generally acceptable to ask for feedback after confirmation the offer was accepted by another candidate. 2. You should be open but not too open with the different institutions to negotiate your offers. You can't leverage different level offers against each other, i.e. TT Asst Prof vs Instructor/Lecturer/VAP. R3: If you must, for your own sanity, confirm your suspicions about not being the chosen candidate, you can. But do not frame it as asking for results or feedback. Frame it as you are still very interested and enthusiastic and wonder if they have any news. In my experience, no one wants to or feels like they can give feedback, much less in writing. That's generally because decisions are rooted in so many intangibles or behind-the-scenes factors. If you happen to get some guidance, you are very lucky. R4 "Friend" should just assume that he/she/they was rejected and that they will laugh on his/her/their face if inquiries about feedback or results. It is easier to start mourning and then being surprised with a positive, albeit delayed, response than to keep on expecting and then facing disappointment. It's easy to understand how he/she/they is losing it... but it definitely won't be long now: this job market season has officially started to die. R5: Sending a quick thank you email right after a campus visit is okay, but following up otherwise won't improve your chances. The decision has to be based on the materials you submitted and your interview. It would give you an update, in case you're worried emails went to spam.

Q: Are we going to see more Tenure Track positions coming up from now on? Thanks!  R1: Very, very few.

Q: For those of you who have done campus visits, how long after submitting your receipts did you have to wait to get reimbursed? Any nudging required? R1: out of 3 campus visits, only 1 asked me to use my own funds to book the flight. After sending them the receipts it took 2 weeks to get the check in the mail. R2: 3 weeks

Q: This is in response to the general question about landing the coveted interview posed by the ABD candidate for the CSULA position (1/24/20). The answer just feels more appropriate here. One undeniable reality of today's market is that it is incredibly difficult to land an interview, regardless of one's qualifications. There are oodles of webpages available to 'enhance your cover letter' or 'make you stand out above the rest' when, in reality, any application--regardless of how much you tinker with your materials--is by and large a massive crap shoot where the odds are almost always stacked against you. Many of the folks landing interviews have already been through multiple job cycles without any interviews (and have PhD in hand, are already assistant profs on the TT, etc.). Some people are just incredibly fortuitous and manage to get multiple interviews on their first try (ABDs included). In today's overly saturated market where VAP positions have over 200 applicants (and all of them can have the PhD in hand), there is no foolproof method to guarantee that you will get an interview. It can be incredibly frustrating to consult this wiki and find that some individuals have managed to strike gold while crickets follow every application you send out. This is my fourth time doing this and I still struggle with the depression and ego deflation that simply go with this territory. This process can be absolutely demoralizing. I would hope that through this wiki we can constructively help each other to manage the defeats and accomplishments that we all experience during the academic job cycle. At the very least, I'd hope it can be a place where we can commiserate and encourage each other. To answer the OP, I suppose your question provides some good direction for what you can do to improve your odds for getting an interview: finish your dissertation, keep teaching classes, and publish more. In the meantime, know that you're in good company. I applied for the CSULA position, too, and didn't get invited to interview. R2. I wasn't the one who posted it, but thank you so much for your insight. Another take on this could be the topic on how many jobs one needs to apply for, in order to have realistic expectations. I know candidates who have applied for more than 120 positions, and others who limit their number to 30 or 40.  What's your view on that? R3: (I'm the OP in the advice post) This is just my personal opinion, but I feel like any quality application requires a substantial amount of research and careful tailoring specific to the target institution that one applies for. I go through multiple drafts before submitting any application. This gets exhausting and I eventually run out of time and energy. If I get anywhere between 30-40 applications out during a job cycle, I tend to pat myself on the back. Someone that goes through that same process for over 120 positions has uncanny stamina or, and I suspect this is probably more accurate, has a very general, possibly diluted application package. Of course, applying widely should grant the applicant more potential opportunities (what did Kobe Bryant say--you miss every shot you don't take?), but, according to the logic presented in academic job advice columns, submitting a mediocre application (unless s/he has an indefatigable ability for revision and an inexhaustible amount of time for applying) shouldn't necessarily yield better results. This all takes me back to my main point, however. So much of this is outside of our hands. I imagine we all try to submit the best package we can that addresses as many of the salient requirements of the application as possible and yet feel completely disillusioned when nothing pans out. Did the reviewer even read my cover letter? Was I the last application reviewed in a stack of 50? 100? Try as much as possible to dissociate yourself with the application process. Submit the best materials you can and hope that things work out. R4: x1000 on R3. Send the application, then forget about it. If you get an interview, then it becomes a nice surprise. That's a bitter pill to swallow when you're fresh, but it will save you much heartache. Something you can do is create a personal website with a stat counter. If I get hits from a particular place, that at least means that they did look at my materials. Usually if I get a substantial number of hits (meaning that they dug into the website), I get contacted for an interview. R5: I agree with the previous posters and totally agree you should send the app and then promptly forget about it. I advise against falling into the trap of wondering "why didn't I make the cut?" because it's mostly a non-constructive way of beating yourself up. You will never know what is said in the committee meetings and what the not listed criteria is. And more importantly, if you're feeling bad about not getting an interview for a particular position then you may still be failing to grasp how over-saturated the job market is. For reference, I am currently in a TT position who also applied for this job and got no interview. That said, if you are consistently applying to several jobs and not getting any interviews, then yes your profile may need tweaking and you should have a mentor or friend that has been successful on the current job market look over your materials and offer advice.  

Q: Not a question. Just a thought for those who get interviews with military institutions. I had one a few years ago and to prepare I reached out to some military officers I knew. These are liberal arts institutions, but their goal is to educate protectors of the nation. You may think about framing answers in relation to military values like discipline, diplomacy, U.S. relations, supporting study abroad initiatives (that help train cadets tactically) etc. I had to take myself out of the running for consideration when I received an offer somewhere else, but it may not hurt to throw in phrasing that shows you know their mission is fundamentally different than other institutions. 

Q: If this is your first time here, be aware that by the end of February the gloves will come off and the usual politeness will be frozen until the end of summer—or when a new Wiki is online. Don't take it personally, some people just need to blow some steam; most importantly though, do not engage! Not even as a peacemaker! It's not worth it. R1: Thank you for the heads up!

Q: Are 'Campus Interview' and 'Campus visit' the same or each category imply different situations? R1: They are the same, just different ways of expressing the experience. 

Q: Does anyone have any suggestions of non-academic jobs that people with our qualifications (linguistics, literature, culture, etc.) should look for? I don't want to speak for anyone else, but I'm personally realizing that after 3 years of applying for tenure-track jobs it seems to be time to move on. R1: The FBI is always looking for Spanish speakers with graduate degrees. Also, you can check on https://www.pmf.gov/. Presidential Fellow is something you may want to explore. R2: You may want to think about corporate education. I would highly recommend getting a professional cover letter and resume help since we have a special case to make, but not at all following academic job letter conventions. R3: Duolingo, Rosetta Stone, Babbel, Google, and Amazon.

Q: Regarding internal candidate situations: universities are sometimes required by HR to publicly list positions even if they're going to inside candidates...I get it. I've seen this happen at universities where I've worked and places I've applied to, and I've also noticed that they were all state schools. I was curious if anyone knows about whether this tendency perhaps comes out of state regulations, or have you seen this with private institutions as well? R1: You mean list an ad and not hold interviews at all or go through the interview process and then pick the internal candidate? I'm not sure about the former as it doesn't seem as common, the latter definitely happens at private schools as well, so it's not just a state regulation thing. It could be an accreditation thing or just a reputation thing, but I don't know for sure.

Q: Is it strange that for the Simmons University Peninsular position there is a question about how much we expect to be paid? I have never been asked this on an application for a TT job before. R1. I've seen that in other apps and I left it blank. Colleges use the same HR site to hire for all their positions so that kind of request/language is for a different kind of job. I'd be happy to be corrected if I'm wrong. Hope others will chime in. R2: True, but for some reason this one was a required box. R3: I am up for a dean position that is using a head hunting firm and that question was on the form. (I am an internal candidate so I had some questions.) The search firm indicated to me in a phone interview that they remove that response from the materials that they send to the search committee, but include it in a question in case salary expectations are severely out of whack--for example, a candidate wants $500,000 and the university can pay $100,000 max. I mentioned that I consulted 990 tax forms and found out what the previous Dean made and responded with a range that was similar. I said that I did not want to sell myself short. The head hunting firm interviewer seemed to agree that that was fine. My suggestion: look up salaries regionally around Simmons and consult the Chronicle salary guide and respond with something reasonable. If you happen to land the job, always ask for more. Offers are rarely rescinded on those grounds. Good luck.

General Discussion, Questions, and Inquiries[edit | edit source]

List NEW information at top.

Q. So, I guess this is it folks? 

Q. Besides Higheredjobs.com, where are people looking for jobs? The MLA Website has very few positions and the Chronicle has less. I don't mind if it's part-time positions, anything helps, thank you! R1: The Linguist List website has a jobs database that regularly has new postings,, even now. Jobs outside the US that don't get posted on MLA and HigherEd will show up there. If you sign up for the "Lite" version of their listserv, you'll get a daily summary that will include any jobs that open up. The CUNY Ling listserv also has job postings that are continuing to show up. You can sign up for that one here: https://lists.qc.cuny.edu/mailman/listinfo/sentproc

Q. How many people have received an offer, but have then had it revoked due to the current pandemic? I've seen this happen frequently in other fields and am beginning to get nervous at I have yet to sign my contract (offer was accepted early 2nd week of March). If you have an offer in writing/a paper trail, do you have any sort of rights if you didn't actually sign a contract? A1: I am also nervous, accepted the written offer at the end of February, but I have not signed a contract. Given the current situation, I have seen that universities can revoke accepted offers (and even contracts). A2: I have been nervous about the exact same thing. Accepted my offer two weeks ago today but still no signed contract. I finally followed up with the Chair yesterday morning and he assured me that the letter is still in the works, but things are taking longer because of the current circumstances. A3: I accepted and signed an offer letter, and am now waiting for the background check to go through. In any other circumstances, I'd feel pretty safe at this point, but - from everything I've heard about COVID-19-related rescinded offers - I remain nervous too. I hope things smooth over for everyone!! A4: I am in the exact same situation than A3. Yesterday, I emailed the university and the chiar reassured me my hiring process was well underway. I'm crossing my fingers, anyway.

Q: I have a campus interview that was changed to online format because of Coronavirus. I was just curious if this is happening with other searches and how it has been managed. You can give a research talk, but teaching demonstrations would be difficult. And how can they offer a position to someone, especially for a TT position, without meeting candidates in person? Just throwing this out here. A: This just happened to me as well. It appears that the teaching demonstration will instead be a presentation and justification of a lesson plan. In my case it's a non-TT position, so I can't comment on that. It's a less than ideal situation for everyone involved. R2: Might be helpful to note many institutions have already been running things this way: I know someone who had a UK interview before the time of the Coronavirus that was run entirely through two sessions of Skype. I find the format to be actually more humane and professional. I have another European colleague who did a Skype interview for a position in the US, and even did a full teaching demo via Skype (that aspect was less than ideal).  That said, our economy is crashing, so at least they're still deciding to go forward with hires, for now.

Q: How many ABDs have been able to get an offer? Also, are you in your 5th, 6th, 7th year? R: I am an ABD in 5th year, will be defending in late May. I have gotten 0 interviews, let alone offers. I am not from the US so that might affect it. To give you an idea, I have four publications, over a dozen international conference presentations, extensive teaching experience (sole instructor, course design), and received over $130,000 in funding. It's been a difficult few months. Hope others have faired better! R2. Here at my institution at least two ABD have offers, one of them has three offers. 5th and 7th year. One international. Some others have had campus but not offers yet. Keep trying! Animo! R3: I am in my 6th year, I received two TT offers. R4: I am an ABD, 5th year and international, and I've received two TT offers. Last year I got 0 interviews. As R2 said, don't give up and mucho ánimo! R5: Are you gente linguistics or literature? Just curious. Lo mejor para todxs. R6: Literature here R7: 6th year ABD in linguistics here, have had 15 skype/zoom interviews, 4 campus visits and 1 TT offer so far. Last year I didn't have nearly as much luck. I really think a great cover letter can go a long way (at least I think that helped me the 2nd time around). Ánimo! 


Q. Hi, I am wondering if other people have experienced similar job market malpractices and / or have any ideas about how to deal with some of the following?: a) departments not disclosing the teaching load (or other important information regarding the job) until later on (interview / campus visit); b) unprofessional campus visit exchanges or remarks; c) colleges or universities not paying for any or only for part of the campus visit--or paying after the visit; d) universities offering money for the move but only after the fact; e) etc. R1: I had a campus visit several weeks ago. They told me they would reimburse me the flight ticket. I'm still waiting. I've been told some school might take up to 2-3 months to reimburse a candidate :( A2. If I were you, I would address each complaint to the school that applies. Having said that, the nature of your worries sounds very different between them. Meanwhile, reimbursement looks easier to fix and teaching load information too, the thing about "unprofessional practices" gets more nuanced and complex and I have never experienced any myself. R3/Q: These things have not all happened to me ( nor at the same time). I was asking to get a sense of how common that kind of practices are, and if people had suggestions of how to deal with them, or any of them. I thought it could be good advice for other candidates. R4: a) You can usually figure out teaching load by searching course schedules, but it usually isn't something explicitly explained until a campus visit, unless they really want to ensure candidates are aware of it (i.e. 4/4 institutions). b) You can choose not to respond to unprofessional experiences. Unfortunately, academia is small, so if you tell the world, it will get around, which can work against you later, though certainly it should not. c) I've never heard of institutions not paying for a visit. More and more departments are pushed or forced to have you make arrangements so that they don't lose out on people not coming or changing their schedule. This tends not to be communicated well, but isn't rooted in malice or favoritism. Reimbursement takes time. d) Generally moving expenses are included and/or negotiated before accepting an offer. If not, they have no reason to reimburse. R5: Many of these things have happened to me. In two cases, I did need to politely remind the dept. administrator after about a month about reimbursement (after I had been rejected), and both times, they admitted that the reimbursement had been overlooked or there was some error (I do not find 2-3 months acceptable for reimbursement when, in my case, an amount around $1200 was in question for one of the positions). For 'illegal' questions, I have been pushed on whether or not I had a partner and what their profession was several times, generally cornered in a car ride (I tried to tactfully avoid, and when pushed, disclosed and reaffirmed our mutual commitment to my career and enthusiasm for the position, though I did not get either of the jobs where this happened to me). The Professor Is In has some suggestions for how to handle these situations. For inappropriate remarks: depends on the nature of the remark. One time when an overtly racist remark was made, I did my best to constructively push back (I also did not get that job). Other inappropriate comments regarding students/their colleagues I generally just try to smile through or redirect. I have never made a formal complaint about breach of HR conduct because I believe it would hurt my still vulnerable career. Gender, position, and race probably matter here, too. R4 offers good advice for moving expenses and teaching load, and it should be kept in mind that in some cases this is negotiable for a given set of years or depending on your other obligations at the university. 


Q. Hello, I was the last candidate to visit a teaching-focused institution in the midwest exactly 1 week ago. So far I have not heard anything back. Since it has been 1 week since my visit and I was the third candidate, does that mean I am probably not their top choice? Thanks. R1. Not necessarily - the pragmatics behind the scene are these - after the committee decides which of the three to hire, then that committee has to bring that choice to the full department. After the department decides, then the chair has to agree, and transmit the decision to the dean. Depending on how efficient [or not] the various offices are, it can take a couple of weeks, easy. R2. Thank you. This is my first year going through this whole process and don't know what to expect in terms of time frames and etc. R3. After all posts I read, my guess is that after a campus visit is better to wait 3/4 weeks before assuming you are not candidate #1. Many people get contacted right away but many institutions have to wait for several steps to contact the candidate: https://juliedodd.net/2011/02/26/faculty-job-positions-delay-between-the-campus-visit-and-a-job-offer/R4: I've gone on the market several times, and my experience was often that if I hadn't heard within 2 weeks, I was not the chosen candidate. I never had competing offers, so I never had a real reason to contact search committees, but I usually did if I wanted the job. But again, only after 2ish weeks of silence. Some have strong opinions about contacting the committee, I don't. Usually, it just confirms your suspicions, and if it is what you need for your mental/emotional strength, do it. 

-How can there only be two offers posted here so far? R1. I think it is still early, but this is my first year in the market so I can't really compare. My guess is that most offers will be made from March. R2: The above answers get at this question. Most offers happen within 1-3 weeks of the last candidate. Chances are many offers have gone out based on the campus visit invitation dates and those who have received them are negotiating or are just not participating in the wiki. Or, maybe it was a failed search. In years past, many have shared second-hand knowledge and my sense is fewer people feel comfortable posting information on behalf of others. 

- New positions still being posted For anyone new to the job market please know that there are still many positions posted during the spring and even summer, and this is norm for the market. Not just visiting or adjunct but even TT positions. Keep checking for new positions and keep applying! --Where do you find them? (I use HigherEd.Jobs) -- (Not the OP who posted about new positions, but thought I'd contribute) I periodically browse several places, because different positions are posted on different websites at different times. 1) The MLA job information list; 2) chroniclevitae.com; 3) higheredjobs.com as the previous poster mentioned; 4) hercjobs.org; 5) surprisingly, indeed.com has some positions posted before they appear anywhere else. Then there are resources such as insidehighered.com, but in my experience most job postings there are outdated. Also (and this is obvious for linguistics folks), linguistlist.org. As someone who does literature, though, I was not aware of it until someone pointed it out to me, and I have since found a few jobs I'm qualified for (e.g. Lecturer). --THANK YOU!!!!!

- Q. Has anyone been invited for MLA interviews yet? I know everything is a bit late this year, but I was curious. Thanks!

- The new revisions to this page are SO MUCH BETTER! Thank you!

- This page has far less activity than past years because the structure is difficult to use and not what most of us are looking for. Why did we change the structure from the previous wikis? Can we change it back? R1. I was also wondering the same. R2. I asked about this a while back and someone said that this format follows other wikis... I still think the other format was easier, but it might be hard to change it now that there are so many jobs here. I remember last year THIS was the place to find every job posting, and now...even the MLA has more postings than this wiki. R3: All the page needs is the title of the institution with a link to the job posting, that's the format from the previous years. I feel like we're not hearing much on responses and such like in years past. R4: I agree. Next year let's keep it back to the simple format. The low participation at the beginning of the search season has had lingering impacts, and half the jobs out there aren't listed on the wiki because it was so cumbersome to add the information.

Q: Reapplying to a failed search for which you interviewed last year. Thoughts? R1: Do it. The worst thing that can happen is they decline to interview you. You'll never know if you don't reapply. R2: Agreed with R1. Failed searches are sometimes due to unresolvable disagreements on the committee and not with the quality of the applicants or interviewees. The committee composition may very well be different this time around. Good luck! R3: I agree with R1 & R2. I was in this situation for two jobs before, and I received offers from both places for the second searches. I know the search committees were different, but I was also a more competitive applicant the second year (more publications/teaching experience).

- Major updates to Spanish and Portuguese 2019-2020 Jobs Wiki: Above I added all of the sections we've had in previous years. With only the "Discussion" and "Job Postings" sections that were initially posted, there has been very little engagement with the Wiki so far this year.

- I suggest that we strike listings after their deadlines pass. This way, it will be easier to find those open postings. R1: This is a good idea! R2: Striking listings after the deadline would defeat the purpose - people check the wiki after applying to see if others have posted info about receiving interviews, etc. OP: We can strikethrough the listings. They are still visible but it's clear that deadlines have passed. Example.

- Wouldn't it be better if we just list the main info of each posting instead of including the entire description? (following the format from last years' wiki). R1. I agree. The current format is so hard to read through and find information fast. R2: Just click on the link next to "Contents” at the top of the page. That will give you the list of the positions with just the name of the university and basic title, and then you can click on that to jump down to the full description and updates. Sometimes having the entire description can be useful, because some postings are hard to find (if they aren't posted on the MLA list or the Chronicle), and often they are erased from those sites after the deadline. The way the page is formatted this year conforms to how almost all the other wiki job pages are formatted. R3: Thanks for the answer, R2. I just noticed the list at the top. wikia.com/wiki/Spanish_and_Portuguese_2019-2020?feed=rss&action=history]

Qualifications: Ph.D. by time of appointment required. Evidence of effective teaching and native or near-native fluency in Spanish and English are required as well as a demonstrated potential for excellence in research and scholarly publications.

Allegheny College is a highly selective private liberal arts college in NW Pennsylvania with an increasingly diverse student body and a dedicated faculty of teacher-scholars.

The University of Texas at San Antonio, Assistant or Associate Professor, Latin American Eco-criticism[edit | edit source]

The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) has embarked on a focused cluster hiring plan to recruit top-tier researchers in interdisciplinary areas of knowledge that will advance the study of Social and Environmental Challenges in Latin America.  Home to some of the largest bioreserves in the world and some of world’s most important biodiversity hotspots, Latin America’s environments are undergoing rapid transformation due to climate change, environmental degradation, and politico-socio-economic transformations across the region.  These forces are coupled in complex ways, and understanding the coupled dynamics of society, climate, and environment in Latin America presents a grand challenge that is fertile ground for transdisciplinary research.

To address this challenge, UTSA is recruiting a cohort of researchers from different disciplines whose research centers on environmental degradation, climate change, and the associated socioeconomic and political challenges and transformations in Latin America and the US-Mexico borderlands. The goal is to foster collaborative and transdisciplinary research to understand and confront the emerging social and environmental challenges facing the region.  This targeted cluster hire will build on and leverage our established research portfolio, propelling our ability to tackle and solve previously unsolvable problems. Hires are expected to build their own unique programs of research, as well as to collaborate with other hires in this cluster and with colleagues in their home department, college, and other colleges.

As part of this cluster, we seek to hire a tenured or tenure-track scholar (Assistant or Associate Professor) in the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures and/or the Department of Art and Art History. We seek a scholar who applies eco-criticism approaches to the literature, visual arts, and/or the media to address topics such as colonialism and human rights in colonial or contemporary Latin America and/or the Caribbean. The ideal candidate will also create transdisciplinary collaborative synergies among faculty hired as part of this cluster and existing faculty in the Departments of Art and Art History, Modern Languages and Literatures, English, and History, among others.  We would particularly welcome a scholar who complements current faculty in terms of theoretical perspectives, methods, media of study, and time and region of focus.

Required Qualifications: Ph.D. in Art History, Spanish, Latin American Studies, or related field in hand at time of application; theoretically motivated research; an established record of teaching, research, and service appropriate to rank; demonstrated interest and experience in collaborative teaming and/or transdisciplinary research; desire and ability to contribute to graduate and undergraduate programs and to educate and mentor students from a culturally diverse urban population.

For consideration as Associate Professor, candidates must have a strong record of publication, evidence of effective teaching, and substantial experience in department, university, and professional service.  Tenure is contingent on Board of Regents approval.

Preferred Qualifications: Native or near-native fluency in Spanish and/or Portuguese; potential for securing external funding; experience in cross-disciplinary areas of inquiry that intersect art history, literature studies, media studies, cultural studies, linguistics, translation studies, and/or film studies. Preferred candidates will be able to successfully teach and mentor diverse, underserved students, including first-generation students, students of color and non-traditional students, and have the ability to contribute to the university’s commitment to inclusive excellence as a Hispanic Serving Institution.

Responsibilities include: teaching introductory, upper division, and graduate courses; research and service in a program that offers B.A. and M.A. degrees; maintaining an active research agenda; leadership in developing new lines of research and teaching; contributing to the university and community through service and outreach.

Applicants must submit:

a letter of application describing research, teaching, and service accomplishments and goals that includes a discussion of the role that diversity and inclusion play in an academic environment; please indicate the rank for which you wish to be considered 

  • a CV
  • up to three representative publications, which could include dissertation chapters

During the 30-minute interview, candidates will be asked to discuss: their teaching of Spanish to heritage learners and second-language students; their teaching of literature and culture courses in their field that they’ve offered and hope to offer at Williams; and their research agenda. The interviews will be conducted in English and Spanish. Candidates should also be prepared to elaborate on their approaches to working with both students and colleagues from diverse backgrounds.

Campus visits will be conducted in February. Three or four candidates will be invited to campus for two-day visits that will include:

– One sample class in Spanish language, at the intermediate level (the equivalent of our RLSP 103 or RLSP 104).

– A research colloquium, for which candidates will be asked to pre-circulate a paper of no more than 30 pages for participants to read beforehand. During the colloquium, the candidate will briefly summarize and contextualize the paper, before devoting the majority of time to leading discussion. This colloquium is an opportunity for candidates both to share their scholarly research and to demonstrate how they would teach a literature or culture course in their field. The colloquium will include faculty and students in Romance Languages, and other faculty members whose interests overlap with those of the candidate.

– An interview with the college’s Committee on Appointments and Promotions (CAP), whose members will have read the candidate’s materials before the interview, and will ask substantive questions about teaching and research.

– Conversations with members of the Department and the Spanish Student Advisory Committee.

– Following the campus visits, the search committee hopes to make an offer in March 2020.
