Job News II

I’m very happy to say that I’ll join the English faculty at Notre Dame in the fall. The position (in American fiction after 1900) is great, the people are terrific, the university is lovely. I couldn’t be happier and I’m tremendously excited to get started in my new home.

In the meantime, I’m particularly grateful for my colleagues in American Culture Studies at Wash U, whom I will be leaving sooner than planned. My time in St. Louis has been wonderful: stimulating, friendly, generous of attention and resources — everything a scholar and a person could want. I’m sorry to leave, but happy I’ll only be moving a few hours up the road. (OK, six and a half, but who’s counting?)

As I said the last time around, nothing much should change here on the blog. I’ll post new contact info once I have it, but that won’t happen until August. In the meantime, I’ll be in St. Louis through the end of the semester and into the summer.

Oh, and those maps of named places in American fiction are coming shortly …

  1. I look forward to meeting you, Matt. Great blog. Let me know if you’d like to get together when you are in town and meet the digital humanities folks at ND/St. Mary’s. Also, if you have questions about moving to SouBe or any other orientation stuff, feel free to get in touch.
