Next year’s plans – good news!

As those of you who follow me on Twitter know, I have spent the last few months working through the job application process, and my endeavours have borne fruit. I am delighted to tell you that I will be joining the Institute of Archaeology and Antiquity at the University of Birmingham as a Teaching Fellow in Roman literature for the 2011-12 academic year.

I’m looking forward to joining the department very much; it sounds like I’m going to be doing a wide range of teaching, both in terms of subject and approach, and the course requirements are set up in very interesting and cool ways. The final details will probably be hammered out next week, but whatever the final details look like, it’s going to be an exciting year.

Of course, next year’s job market will usher in another period of running around like a headless chicken in pursuit of multiple forms and paperwork, but for now, it’s very satisfying to be able to rest after the chaos of this year’s job hunt, and the international move, and, um, finishing off the PhD. I suspect I’m due a proper holiday…
