IR Rumor Mill said...

We've let the last comment through, but keep it clean, folks.

Anonymous said...

And why, exactly, would you "let the last comment through"? What is the point of having some envious schmuck who did not get an interview vent HIS frustrations in public and imply that (a) the only reason HE did not get invited is because he's not a woman, and (b) the only reason these candidates are interviewing is because they are. If you are going to pretend to be a moderator, you might as well do it right. I am not interested in whatever rationalization the author or others might offer for the 7:00p comment. And, by the way, AA is illegal in California.

IR Rumor Mill said...

Because the comment is ambiguous.

To be blunt: if the comment clearly invoked gender or some other personal characteristic, we would have censored it. But it does not, and we consider discussions that center around whether a school is looking for scholars who use particular methods or study particular topics legitimate.

IR Rumor Mill said...

And while we suspect that it was a comment about gender, we decided to be charitable.

Anonymous said...

I really thought the commenter was referring to the fact that their research interests are very similar, and they are both Niehaus Fellows at Princeton. I must be naive.

Looks like the Niehaus Center is buzzing with early interviews- Camber, Heather, and Christina.

Anonymous said...

Jennifer Erickson and Geoffrey Wallace (both Cornell ABD) have interviews at UNT for the human rights position.

IR Rumor Mill said...

A belated request: could people post rumors on the rumors thread from now on?

Anonymous said...

"To be blunt: if the comment clearly invoked gender or some other personal characteristic, we would have censored it."
It seems the comment did clearly invoke gender. If the posting was just meant to suggest that Davis seems interested in IPE scholars, they would have said that. There is no affirmative action for IPE scholarship. How much clear does the gender reference need to be? It is not uncharitable to remove a posting that is offending readers of this blog, and you should error on the side of caution. If the two candidates mentioned in the posting had been African American, would you have been this "charitable"? Somehow, I think not.

Anonymous said...

I assumed the "type" referred to their associations with the Niehaus Center at Princeton.

I think the misunderstanding (assuming that's what it is) is due to a typo. The poster obviously meant "have a type." The "aa" is most likely a typo and not a reference to affirmative action....

Anonymous said...

why not fix the typo?

Anonymous said...

I agree, the poster must have meant "type of work." Niehaus, similar interests in institutions .... Let's not get paranoid people.

Anonymous said...

Oh my god! Let this go! For all we know the person was thinking 'type A' personalities; uptight, and whatnot. Delete it or let it go. Now, could someone please remind us of the Wiki link? I saw the request posted earlier and I think if someone knows, some of us looking for jobs might be interested in looking at it.

Anonymous said...

I personally suspect that the "aa" was not a typo and that this was a sexist comment. However, these candidates do have a lot in common besides gender: Niehaus affiliation, work on institutions, quantitative methods, etc. So I don't think the comment "clearly" invoked gender.

Given that the poster's meaning is ambiguous, maybe we should just let it go?
