It’s the end of the world as we know it

I have been looking for a job in Italian Studies in North America (mostly) since Fall 2007. After one good year, the crisis hit hard, and the sector bogged down, severely depressed, bordering non-existence ever since. Today, April 12, it hit a new low.

This is a screenshot of the MLA job list for Foreign languages, entry Italian, which I have taken a few minutes ago.

      Thank you Franco. I am hanging on a few applications still out there. We’ll see what happens in the next few weeks, but the immediate future does not look bright. Hope you are well, and how’s your situation? New job?
