Now That’s a Cover Letter
I’ve spent a number of hours that I’m actually afraid to tally over the last week reading applications for the three jobs that my department is seeking to fill this year, and I must say that nary a one had the panache of Alex Golub’s job letter. He’s got style, he’s got verve, and boy, has he got a sense of mission. He explicitly bills this as a template, oh you early-modernists and pre-1900 Americanists, so take note.1 [Via Liz.]
