         Subject: position at Waterloo (English)

dear all,

some of you may be interested to apply for the following position at the
University of Waterloo in the department of english language and
literature--i've appended the ad below.

i'm new to uwaterloo myself, but from what i can tell so far, the rhetoric
and professional writing stream into which i was hired (and for which this
position advertises) is an excellent place to be if you are an english phd
whose interests fall outside traditional literary bounds. it occurs to me
that many computing humanists have the kind of training and interest in
rhetoric asked for in the ad.
