On Thursday, the MLA job list was posted. My first pass turned up 54 jobs, none of which mentioned comics. However, academic honesty forbids me from pretending I could teach Anglo-Saxon or the history of the English language, so limiting my search to Renaissance or Ren/Medieval posts reduced my haul to 32 positions. These are the jobs to which I will apply, and I was encouraged to see so many.
Admittedly, I have my work cut out for me between now and December, but better that by far than a dearth of opportunities.
