In the hallway this morning, almost late for class, search committee chair, on his way to a meeting, apologized for not interviewing me.
"Many people applied," he explained, "and two are coming to campus."
"That's OK!" I amiably, almost cheerfully, replied, and went on my way.
I think I can see these people now or at least know who they are. For some weird reason I'm hoping for Anglo men, again. Maybe I'd feel better & more valued (since he wouldn't ever be able to have my experience & perspective). A woman from my country or a man from another country would be fine, but a guy from my country... I don't think I'd like that at all!! I haven't much liked the ones I've encountered at conferences...
I'll let you know more as soon as I know! It should be fun!
P.S. And I'm fine! I really am. (I kinda knew all along ;-) #benefitsofpessimisticrealism
