Doug, if you don't mind me asking, how is this going to effect you? Do you have change advisors again?ReplyDelete
Adam, it shouldn't affect me directly. I'm done with coursework and my research is more Hebrew Bible oriented than Hebrew language oriented. This position is focused on the NW Semitic languages side of the program. Of course, whoever is hired would likely be on my overall committee.ReplyDelete
That makes sense. I knew you were working under Fox for a while, and then I thought I heard that you switched to work under Miller. I am glad to hear that you won't be too disrupted by the change in faculty.ReplyDelete
