Date: Wed, 2 Nov 1994 17:17:33 -0600 From: Natalie Maynor 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. --Natalie (maynor[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]
