the academic conference interview

December is quickly disappearing. And that means in just a few weeks I’ll be sitting in a hotel suite in New Orleans interviewing a bunch of candidates for our Early Islam search. UTK is lucky this year, and we’re doing

Hopefully then members of the Andean Studies section as well as any other interested Latin American historians will comment on the posts, and give direction to the discussion in San Diego. I have high hopes for this model, because I love the idea of participatory panels in which the audience does not simply passively consume a number of papers that may or may not have continuity.
