Below I have pasted a brand new job posting for my home
department. It is being advertised in all the usual places,
too, of course. I only mention it here because I wanted to
alert any potentially interested parties to the fact that the
literary period/field is *genuinely* open. So if you have a
serious interest/expertise in postcolonial literary studies--
the kind that would qualify you to teach a survey course that
reflected the range of work done under that moniker--then, by
all means, all you Miltonists, Spenserians, Shakespeareans,
and other early modernists with interests in the New World,
Ireland, imperialism, the history and legacy of colonialism,
etc., please apply.
