Day Two

Of the days on which I may have received an email or a phone call informing me that someone somewhere (see previous map) wants to interview me based upon my stellar dossier and outstanding research program. I go into Day Three a bit more deflated, yet nevertheless excited to get another essay submitted for publication. And before the December 1 deadline. I wish I had completed that other essay I worked on over the summer and had gotten it submitted as well, but that just gives me something to pursue at a later date. And now to devote December to a massive rewrite of yet another essay to be published in a European journal early next year. (And I keep thinking about a few minor revisions I'd like to make on an essay submitted already months ago. Perhaps it's time to contact my co-editors for advice.)

Map of Hope and Hard Work

Here's a map indicating most of the twenty-five positions I've applied to this autumn. It doesn't show those positions overseas (in South Africa, Egypt, and Turkey). Most of them are full-time, tenure-track openings looking for specialists in my fields: phenomenology, hermeneutics, and poststructuralism. There are a few visiting professorship and postdocs. Only three more deadlines by the end of the year.
