Here is a list of jobs that were advertised this fall for positions in medieval philosophy. All jobs are tenure-track or the equivalent:

Wesleyan University (Middletown, CT)

Spring Hill College (Mobile, AL)

King’s College (Wilkes-Barre, PA)

Wisconsin-Madison [The job is advertised in early modern or medieval. It’s the second year in a row that a major US research university has listed medieval on a short list of desired specializations. (Compare Ohio State’s very similar position last year.) This strikes me as a significant new trend. Such departments are not yet thinking it obligatory to have a specialist in medieval, but it is now on their list of interests in a way it previously was not.]

University of Geneva [This is a senior position, to replace Alain de Libera, who is now teaching at the Collège de France. A French correspondent tells me there were 21 candidates for the Geneva position, and, as of yet, no decision made.]


This is a short list, but it does not include quite a few further positions that look on their face as if they might be friendly to a medievalist, but that do not list medieval as the area of specialization.

Thanks to Nate Bulthuis (Cornell PhD student) for sharing this list with me.
