Subject: TESOL Job

A month or so ago I posted our official announcement for a position

(Assistant Professor) in TESOL/AmLit -- a very brief announcement in

the exact wording sent to the MLA job list. My department head told

me not long ago that almost all of the applicants so far have been from

people who are primarily interested in American Lit and have only a

modicum of TESOL interest/experience. That's a problem since our primary

need is for a TESOL person who can also teach other courses in linguistics

and ideally can teach AmLit from time to time. If you know of any likely

candidates, please encourage them to apply. I don't have a copy of the

official ad handy at the moment but can find it if anybody wants to see

it. What I'm writing right now is not any kind of "official" word -- I

assume it's legal for me to be writing this unofficially. The deadline

is sometime around the middle of this month. We'll interview at MLA.
