12/8: Has anyone heard from Old Dominion?

12/23: Received email request for first-round interview from Centenary College of Louisiana

12/28: I know it's only been two weeks (and the holidays!) but has anyone heard anything from West Point?

  • Nothing here from West Point (12/29)
  • Me neither 1/3. It's very early.
  • 01/24: Received general email telling us that finalists would be decided by "the end of February" with all applicants being notified of finalist status by "early March"
  • 3/1: interview request

    • Any word on the campus visits for the lit position? x2
    • Still no news?

2/3: Any word from Alabama A&M?

  • No, but I'm not remotely surprised. They always seem to be behind everyone else (i.e., while other institutions are interviewing/conducting campus visits in the spring, A&M doesn't even seem to contact applicants for an initial interview until the summer before the anticipated start date).

2/19: Perhaps anybody here has heard something of Harvard's Literature and History (Open specialization) position(s)? It was due 12/15/23 if I recall correctly, but not widely advertised.

  • 2/19 Yes, interviews took place a few weeks ago

2/29. Has anyone heard from UChicago's Fundamentals Issues and Text program lectureship in exegesis/hermeneutics? It was due 1/14 I believe.

  • 03/06: Campus visits are complete

- Yes they have

3/18. Has anyone heard anything from UT Southern?

-4/4. Rejection received. Position has been filled.

5/30 Re Wilberforce University. The university has been and is in a shambles by comparison to the norms at other MW colleges. If you go there, go there with the expectation to leave in a year or two. Yes, it is that bad.
