A candidate for the Africanist search talks with a student during a meet and greet. The Loyola History department is searching for a new assistant professor of history with a specialty in African studies. The department hiring committee, along with a group of student volunteers, began conducting formal candidate interviews in early February. Students were encouraged to participate in sample classes, lectures given by the candidates either on their own research or on subject matter they envision teaching, as well as informal meet and greet sessions with all three candidates. No additional candidates beyond the three already interviewed have been announced. The Loyola community can expect a hiring decision to be made before the academic year ends.
