English Department Candidate Search

The English department is looking to hire two new professors for the upcoming school year. One that specializes in literature by writers of color, and another that specializes in Shakespeare and early British Literature. As a part of the process, they have to teach a lecture for current English students. I have had three candidates teach in two different classes. The first was in my Pre-Raphaelites class, and the other two taught in my British Literature II class. We just had one today, and I was pretty impressed with his knowledge of Shakespearean literature and other early works. We had a fun lecture that involved reading aloud, stomping at the end of each iambic pentameter, singing, pivoting, and other things that got us moving up and about. It wasn’t just so we could have fun and everyone liked him, it was mostly so he could get us to understand reading aloud and actually performing the piece without being passive readers. I could tell he was passionate about his work, but then again, so were all the other candidates I have seen, and I am sure even the ones I haven’t are passionate too. I think the College has a difficult decision to make, but I was excited to be a part of the hiring process. It is for us students, after all, so we matter the most, right? πŸ™‚
Overall I know that the right decision will be made, I am just glad I am not the one that has to make it. I am on the other side of things right now: the interviewee side, and that is plenty stressful. I know that having these candidates interrupt the flow of the semester my professors have planned, so I am sure they are ready to have this process completed and finalized. I am ready to get back in the swing of things and finish the rest of the semester strong!
