Comings, Goings, and Other Milestones – 2019 edition

Every year I do my best to keep track of faculty moves and the like and post them here to spread the news.  We’re light on moves again this year, but we have several interesting interim appointments.  As I say every year, it’s entirely possible that I’m missing something that should be on the list.  If so, please send it my way for inclusion and I will update it promptly.  And as for this upcoming year, don’t forget the opening at Ohio State.

  • Sarah Cole (Ohio State) at Harvard
  • Ellen Waldman (Thomas Jefferson) at Quinnipiac (fall) and Cardozo (spring)
