Subject: New Job Posting
Below I have pasted a brand new job posting for my home department. It
is being advertised in all the usual places, too, of course. I only
mention it here because I wanted to alert any potentially interested
parties to the fact that the literary period/field is *genuinely* open.
So if you have a serious interest/expertise in postcolonial studies --
the kind that would qualify you to teach a survey course that reflected
the broad range of work done under that moniker -- then by all means all
you Shakespeareans, Spenserians, Miltonists, and other early modernists
with interests in the New World, Ireland, imperialism, the history and
legacy of colonialism, etc., please apply.
ASSISTANT PROFESSOR OF ENGLISH: Ohio Wesleyan University. Ohio Wesleyan
University seeks a person specializing in a postcolonial approach to
