Word on the Street[]

Legitimately asking: does anyone know if any universities are interviewing at MLA anymore, or is everyone doing Zoom then moving to on-campus invitations? I'm thinking about the job market next year and curious what to plan for in a best-case scenario. Thanks in advance!

*Everyone does Zoom interviews now. I think there's no point in planning for MLA interviews-- if you get one it will be an exception, not the rule.
