Any news about these positions? Do you know anything about the one and three year positions at the University of Virginia? They look like the 2 lecturer positions they posted last year. The idea above was a good one but it seemed more helpful to sort the invitations received into categories. Please add the dates if you know them and move any schools that are in the wrong category. Scontato che le culture romanze dovessero pagare per prime perdendo in prestigio e attrattiva, soprattutto quando non sostenute - come accade nel caso dell'Italiana - da politiche di promozione dei rispettivi paesi d'origine.
Se queste sono le strategie di rilancio delle discipline umanistiche, be', sono stentatelle. Avete notato chi ha conseguito la maggioranza dei posti di ruolo tenure track negli ultimi anni? Che ne dite voi? Mi rivolgo sia ai docenti di madrelingua italiana che a quelli di madrelingua inglese.
Che ne pensate? O il problema non si pone? Sto forse esagerando? Mi scuso in anticipo se questo post abbia offeso qualcuno. Non era assolutamente nelle mie intenzioni.
Non credo che questo sia il luogo opportuno per parlare di cio', ma il tema in se' e' della massima importanza. Non me ne voglia nessuno - inclusi i miei carissimi amici americani - ma le cose vanno dette senza troppi fronzoli, anche perche' la sitazione e' grave. Io non ho statistiche alla mano, quello che ho visto negli ultimi anni e' una prevalenza di italiani - specialmente provenienti da certe universita' - nei posti TT. Il problema della conoscenza o meno della lingua e vogliamo dire anche della storia della letteratura, della storia tout court, della cultura ecc.?
Cerchiamo di non eludere la questione centrale: chi cresce in Italia - nonostante il sistema educativo vada a pezzi e letteralmente anche gli edifici scolastici, mentre i praticelli dei campus fioriscono con rigore geometrico - pasteggia a terzine dantesche, pagine manzoniane ed epica antica in lingua originale molto prima di raggiungere il primo anno universitario - e scusatemi la metafora mangereccia Come fa un non madrelingua con una storia scolastica tipicamente americana a recuperare tutto cio'?
Lo chiedo candidamente, veramente senza dietrologie. Francamente, siamo sinceri, servirebbero come minimo mesi e mesi di studio - non ricerca, dico proprio studio - in Italia, una massiccia dose di corsi di lingua, letteratura, storia, filosofia e Il sistema educativo universitario dovrebbe evitare che i carissimi colleghi americani - che non me ne vogliano, parlo a difesa del loro stesso futuro di docenti in US!
Prego tutti di scusare la mia franchezza, se mai cio' possa avere offeso qualcuno, non era mia intenzione, ma in questi anni ne ho viste veramente di cotte e di crude e di tutti i colori Che i migliori, di qualsiasi nazionalita' siano, ci salvino. La questione, come gia' detto da altri, sta nella qualita' dei docenti, siano essi madrelingua o meno.
Che poi ci siano cattivi docenti o che gli italiani possano avere un vantaggio ad insegnare la lingua e la letteratura d'Italia anche grazie alla loro educazione filologica, mi sembra talmente ovvio che non ci sarebbe neanche il bisogno di ripeterlo. Buon per loro ed evviva la filologia!
Tuttavia, anche gli italiani talvolta arrivano con un bagaglio culturale che non sempre li aiuta ad aprire i loro e quelli dei loro studenti orizzonti, anzi. Dunque, di nuovo, la questione se parliamo di assunzioni, visto che siamo su wiki jobs dovrebbe vertere sulla qualita' dei candidati piuttosto che sulla loro nazionalita'.
E ovviamente la logica va seguita senza facili simmetrie: il sistema universitario italiano e americanino non sono comparabili nel bene e nel male e i professori di letterature anglofone in Italia meriterebbero un discorso a parte, piuttosto che quello svolto sin qui rovesciato da capo a piedi - magari fosse cosi' semplice risolvere i problemi delle competenze piu' adatte ad ogni luogo.
E' chiaro che stiamo parlando della qualita' dei docenti e della loro preparazione e sono d'accordo che questo non e' il posto adatto per la discussione iniziata qualche post fa, dunque si torni pure con gaudio - per chi lo ha - a discutere di jobs. E si' che anche la filmologia e la storia del cinema imporrebbero una perizia altamente specialistica Tra qualche tempo, tra le competenze richieste ai candidati, figurera' pure la preparazione del caffe' secondo la ricetta di Edoardo e la didattica per telepatia attraverso un apposito strumento che il MIT non manchera' di mettere a punto chiamato "culturasmatico" culture diffuser , tutto in grafene e presumibilmente di forma sferica, da collocarsi al centro dell'aula, con docente e studenti seduti in circolo per terra tenendosi per mano.
Con una aggiunta: non negli USA ma nel mondo. Probabilmente della letteratura tout court. Ad maiora. Comunque, ogni mission statement universitario negli USA recita che scopo dell'universita' Beautiful Lies e' coltivare e promuovere e accrescere il critical thinking, la responsible citizenship, ecc. Forse pecco a pensare che siano balle? E belle grosse? Ad minora? Aho', se occupeno de cinema, no? Il bello e' che le universita' li richiedono Immaginate colloqui brillanti sul cinema neorealista e il ruttino per indigestione nella cultura italiana a cavallo del boom economico Oppure uno su Alberto Sordi, la ribollita e il senso di colpa Che spasso!
Il bello e' che in Italia nun se li caga nisuno. Ben che vada, pubblicheranno qualche loro ghirigoro a pagamento con University of Toronto Press. A paga' semo boni tutti Riguardi a c , cioe' ai filmologi, confermo quel che ho scritto, non a discapito dei filmologi autentici, ma contro i filmologi fasulli.
How come you're so well informed about names and people, posts and posters? I never mentioned any names. Have you signed your post instead? Mi sa che ho pestato una coda di paglia! Proprio non c'e' limite all'indecenza! Believe me, I might not be as good as I think, but you're just a mediocre hypocrite, mon lecteur! We should talk about jobs, not petty politics. Maybe this reflects very well why the discipline is in its current state.
Be professional! No name calling. E se vi volete insultare, andate da un'altra parte, per favore! Is the job market awful and frustrating? Are there hidden differences of opinion and sometimes prejudices among us? But while the market won't reward us all as much as we would like or as much as we deserve, I still believe that it has a way of weeding out those whose attitudes make them bad colleagues and worse advisers.
Indeed, in at least one case here, it appears to have already done so. Thank you. Everyone, stay focused and stay professional. Do not let the mean-spirited rants of some interfere or distract. Certo da Altan a una cosa del genere il salto e' notevole, e chi l'ha compiuto ne andra' giustamente proud.
Ma guardate la figura: precocemente obesa, con tratti infantili, capelli con scriminatura laterale, fattezze regolari seppure rigonfiate da corpulenza preadolescenziale, movimenti bulleschi da asilo nido. Certo un essere del genere avra' gia' passato notti all'addiaccio su una sedia per accaparrarsi l'ultimo modello dell'ipad.

Capite che tipo d'individuo puo' aver messo li' una ridicolaggine di questo tipo? Chiunque siano, devono essere 'cresciuti' con il mito di Hannah Montana. Get a fucking life dude, because you're obviously not getting a job. But I believe there are also some points of serious interest. If I may I would like to say just a couple of things: 1. It is undeniable that working mostly if not only on topics like "popular cinema in Italian culture", "cinepanettone" etc.
Personally I consider offensive that someone whose main research is on such themes gets jobs when there are so many better candidates out there. I don't know all the names you mentioned but looking at some of their CVs I also wonder what is going on. If you consider someone "very qualified" to teach in a big University with just a few minor articles, than I beg to disagree.
Especially because there are many other candidates with many more articles, in better journals, and some monographs. Did you notice that you mention only women? This doesn't seem to work in favor of your argument. It is an undeniable fact that right now there is the so-called positive discrimination. As if "positive" could peacefully stay with "discrimination". There are reasons for that - sometimes good reasons - but it is undeniable that if a man and a woman are both considered good fits for a job, it is the woman that gets hired.
I hope I didn't offend anyone. Personally I am not going back to the US unless some things change radically. Like institutions start being interested in literature and not trivialities again. Gaoheng Zhang is a man, by the way. Simply because some women were hired last year for major TT-track job does not imply that they were under-qualified. We do not have access to the selection criteria used by the search committess.
The job market is a depressing gauntlet for all academics, male and female alike. Anglo-French theory -- i. There is no "national" univ system in the US, so, in considering appointments that are made, you will always run up against local needs. This would make it difficult to be able to compare appointments across institution type. It seems to me that it would be impossible to compare some of the institutions listing positions on this wiki: so many of them are substantially different.

This is a political reality. The needs of a large, research-1, public university will not be the needs of a private university. For the rest, I noticed the tendency here to think of the job market as analogous of the concorso, where titoli and publicazioni should be summed up to figure out who is the most qualified candidate.
I don't think it works that way. From my experience, I would say that committees - at least in R1 - are looking for "potential" in a junior faculty, and are much more interested in getting someone with a promising research agenda rather than someone with a lot of "meh" publications. I mean: it can take a couple of years to get an essay out in the States, so it is natural that junior scholars only have a couple.
I thought the humanities were valuable as one of the few spaces left in the world where we can be critical and discursive, and not just dismissive? Can we stop and think for a moment about the fact that Italian studies is a dying discipline? I also am deeply suspicious of the anonymity of these messages, which tells me that a lot of colleagues would be a lot less forthcoming in public about their views, e.
Il post che difende lo studio esclusivo dei cinepanettoni veramente mi fa disperare. Davvero possiamo credere che studiare seriamente, non dico Dante Petrarca e Boccaccio o, che so, Parini, ma autori contemporanei che ne so, Affinati, Tuena, Tarabbia etc. E una sciocchezza pericolosa. O come si studia il romanzo italiano rispetto alle sue fonti e influenze straniere.
Che tristezza. Our time with students is restricted, but ultimately they do and will take different courses, none are mutually exclusive, and it is our duty to make sure syllabi are representative. There is a true cultural conflict here! And a big one. We should organize a conference about this - why not, considering that there are conferences on everything: "Dante as a medieval version of a punk," "cinepanettone with or without champagne?
No kidding, our conference will be the most serious of the last decades - and that's why nobody would be there, because it would not be a funny-learning thing, right? But even with 2 or 3 partecipants that would be the most important meeting around. Because we would have to explain to ourselves why the States is almost? For the sake and the tradition of this wiki, I am not going to write my name here, but I would have no problem to help organizing such a virtual space if there are enough colleagues interested in continuing such debate in a more constructive way especially because I have no dog in this fight, but I am curious to get to know the full extent of each side's position.
So, let me know. In Italia ci sono ancora alcune tra le migliori riviste di italianistica del mondo; che so: Lettere Italiane, Italianistica, Studi Novecenteschi, Allegoria E' ben documentato? E' solo "alla moda"? I tempi sono cambiati. Porre le questioni in questi termini significa semplicemente accettare lo status quo; significa avere un'idea di uguaglianza sociale che abbassa il livello di tutti invece che cercare di alzarlo per tutti.
Sono patronizing? Certo, se esserlo significa fare ancora delle distinzioni e pensare che la cultura non alta, la cultura tout court debba essere accessibile a tutti non tramite la sua negazione ma grazie allo sforzo di fornire a tutti gli strumenti necessari per comprenderla e apprezzarla.
Nisciuno nasce imparato. Continuare a formulare un'equivalenza di valore e di importanza tra Maria de Filippi che, tra l'altro, usa un format americano Chi scrive si occupa, guarda un po', soprattutto di autori viventi significa condannare il nostro ruolo all'irrilevanza e distruggere dall'interno l'idea stessa di cultura.
Per il resto in bocca al lupo a tutti, cinepanettonari o meno, filologi o tematici, strutturalisti o realisti, donne o uomini, etc. Invece di scannarci a vicenda dicendo che le pubblicazioni degli altri sono meh Disfattismo, comprensibile, ma in buona fede? What exactly is illegal? Is it really the 'financial strength' of senior colleagues that have made for decades ridiculous salaries really a consideration when there are thousands of young scholars on the street? And really, how do you want 'formare' a young scholar in a different way?
Can you really do that and make sure it is gonna produce results? Or is it just an easy way out to feel good about yourself? Of course, it is hard to renounce to a position of privilege. Very few people would do it naturally. That's why people who are not in that position should come together and start exert some pressure in totally legal ways and at least try to shake the 'status quo'.
It is true that Italian is not considered a 'critical' field at the moment, but the Departments and those senior colleagues have a responsibility for having accepted and granted way too many PhDS. They have to face it, rather then escaping it. Other initiatives could be planned as a way to promote the Italian Studies within each single university We do not need disfattismo we have already enough of that!! My need a slogan Mayb time to retire? Put new position as a condition. What is truly abhorrent is this policing on the part of professors on a site for job seekers although it ironically attests to unspoken fears and bad conscience.
What is truly abhorrent it is that people care of the pension-plans of senior colleagues in a time when PhDs and adjuncts who have been exploited for years by their institutions have literally no money to survive, no health insurance, and suffer the psychological repercussions of a system which has become increasingly brutal. Yes, do blame it on them, do say they were not as good as you, that if they are broke and desperate it must be their fault. What a great lesson for the humanities! There are many fields when people have to retire at a certain age. It does not mean they cannot maintain certain functions and a position of prestige within their respective institutions.
It would be great if professors in their 80s could work next to younger scholars, but that is simply illusory. It is important that these people know that any extra year they are spending in rounding up their pensions is having a direct impact on the lives of other, the annihilation of hope and the destruction of the field.
Someone's ideas on ageism are very similar to the white minority's ideas of racism during the apartheid We are not proposing to kick the prof out. What's ageist about that? December 2, Hello, I spent the better part of two hours reading the arguments and counterarguments on this thread, after I had been informed of this by someone else who wished me to take up these issues as organizer of the AAIS conference in Boulder in so the issue of confidentiality is out of the window with me, my name is Valerio Ferme.
I am one of the "lucky" ones who got in when jobs were still fairly available. I think the idea of discussing the current situation of Italian and Italian Studies is a very good one, and I would like to have some input from people as to the topics that they would like to hear discussed, by whom and in what format, in a possible meeting at the AAIS. I have taught Dante and Boccaccio to classes of students in English , and not an edulcorated version, and students have been attentive, smarts and have grown very much from the experience.
Although all available data show that only a very small number of the entries in Italy, even irregular unlawful , follow the route of arrival by sea, the image of migrants just landed on the coasts of southern Italy, and of rescuers and law enforcement officers intent on feeding them, not only sums up in an almost didactic way a set of practices representative of immigration, but sometimes it seems almost to exhaust the phenomenon discursively, providing a highly repetitive and recognisable set of images and content.
The same frame emerges at the level more strictly of content and terminology. Above all these images or chains, image sequences can be directly linked to the corresponding political discourses that insist on the conception of a besieged space, of flows to be stemmed and governed. Thus the emergency administrative management has its reference media discourse, in which the visual dimension is predominant, exactly iconic. So, very often the photographic image but the same goes for the television one is used as a form of framing which confirms and reinforces the interpretative key chosen 25 in concrete making the use of peculiarly chosen images with the logic of journalistic information indistinguishable from those related to purposes mainly of political communication.
Indeed, this representative and metaphorical apparatus not only recalls certain specific illustrative choices, but also a recurring language that corresponds to just as many political and administrative solutions The flattening in the news, and more specifically regarding crime, of information concerning foreigners is an aspect well documented by numerous studies and is also one of the constants of the representation of the immigrant in different international media systems Having entered the criminal then brings something, adding some elements that did not exist previously crime, violence and can just as easily be the subject of social stigma and exclusion.
The immediacy of this metaphoric image allows an easy journalistic use and the equally simple connection to common sense statements, to frames and knowledge understandable by the public A mixture of erudite references and conventional images that can combine the infographic, the photographic image and the editorial of the university professor almost seamlessly The bellicose vocabulary so characteristic of the coverage of arrivals finds perfect understanding within this metaphor, in this way of illustrating the movement between spaces.
As Georg Simmel 38 noted, the foreigner appears the perfect embodiment of this situation of ambiguity, so immigration can be transformed into a new kind of worry. In fact, in Italy among immigrants Muslims add up to about one-third, and the religious differentiation due to new entries operates above all within a differentiation of the Christian component: just think of the migration from Eastern Europe, mostly Orthodox.
Much of the debate has focused on some sensitive and very divisive issues, often articulated in very stereotypical terms: the construction of mosques 42 , the veil, the role and rights of women 43 , and of course the security issues arising from the threat of Jihadist terrorism, inevitably reconnected - through mechanisms of simplification and criminalisation - with the wider Muslim presence in Italy where, as we know, the moderate component makes up a large majority. Thus, it is primarily the frame of the enemy and the threat that drives the image of the immigrant of Muslim origin, through suspicion of fundamentalism, just as there remain distorted representations already widely reported in the literature.
The monolithic nature of the Islamic religious system, an almost innate bigotry and an ahistorical and immutable image of Muslim societies are just some of the most obvious elements of this complex of distortions. Speaking of arbitrariness, however, is quite another thing to stating a coincidence or a complete indeterminacy. There is a difficulty in narrating and dominating socio-cultural change and this difficulty also concerns the media: the stubborn centrality of news regarding the crimes of the immigrants appears both as a mechanism of anticipatory social control towards immigrants and as a form of symbolic displacement, an attempt to shift the axis of the discussion from the strenuous conflict-integration dialectic to that, in many ways much more reassuring of the Other-as-a threat.
