Hi all,

We may be about to receive permission to hire a tenure track, junior 
position in Post Colonial literature focussing on Anglophone literature 
(we need to wait for a budget to come down, next Thursday). There is a 
slight chance it might be a different discipline, but the betting is on 

I've been looking around for example ads, especially those that might 
include a digital component. A quick search is not showing many that 
mention DH explicitly. Does anybody know of examples with DH and 

If the job is allowed, BTW, we should know by the end of next week. It 
will be a 2:2 teaching load (reduced, probably to 1:2 in the first 
year), with start up research funds (I am told recently in the range of 
$10k-15k, though it is entirely subject to negotiation and budget 
conditions), and a great institutional interest in both graduate studies 
and DH. The position will be emphatically about Anglophone literature, I 
suspect (we are very short handed at the moment) and people will be 
expected to be able to teach other general courses in English literature 
(surveys, genres, first year, that type of thing). The University of 
Lethbridge doesn't really teach remedial composition and what 
composition is taught is not taught in English. So all your teaching 
would be literary/domain-specific.

Independently of this position, we are in the process of putting 
together a major University-wide incubator programme that will have a 
heavy DH component, including what looks like a new knowledge 
Mobilisation or Maker's lab. An appropriate person would be welcome to 
participate in this.

I'll know more next week and it is always possible it may fall through. 
But in the meantime if you know of good ads we could model ours on, I'd 
appreciate the tip!
