Academic Jobs Wiki

For Jobs in English Education / Children's and YA Lit. see Children's 2014


Would people be amenable to creating a category for Higher Education jobs (as opposed to P-12 jobs?) We could also change the main title to be Education 2013-2014 (incl. Higher Ed) so people know where to look?

  • A: Since the list below doesn't seem to be divided up according to specialization, I don't see why Higher Ed jobs couldn't simply be added to the existing list as it stands [EDIT: as it appears they already have been], without creating an entirely new section. "Including Higher Ed." might be added next to the link on the Wiki Front page so users know they can find such jobs on this page. <--EDIT: suggested change made to Wiki Front Page [1/20]
