After seeing maybe a job a day posted on the main job search sites since February or so, fifteen hit the Chronicle this morning. Since I’m not all that far along on the dissertation, I’m only likely to apply to three or four (so far), but it’s nice to see that some job listings are actually grooved for what I do. There are schools out there who want professors who teach old books! Woo hoo!
I’m not holding my breath on any of it, and most of the gigs would require that I do the supernatural and defend the dissertation within the next twelve months, but it gives me hope that, a year from now, when I’m in a stronger position, these sorts of things might be availaible.
On the other hand, it might be enough to inspire the supernatural.
