Erin Murrah Mandril Accepts Tenure-Track Position

American Literary Studies graduate Erin Murrah-Mandril has accepted a tenure-track position as assistant professor of English at the University of Texas at Arlington, where she will also be a Faculty Associate for the Center for Mexican American Studies. She will be teaching American and Mexican American literatures. Located in the Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington metro area, UT-Arlington is the second largest university in the UT system and is classified as a Hispanic Serving Institution and as a “high research activity” institution by the Carnegie Foundation. Dr. Murrah-Mandril would like to thank Dr. Jesse Alem├ín for his professional guidance over the years, particularly his advice concerning her three peer-reviewed articles and her dissertation, “Out of Time: Temporal Colonization and the Writing of Mexican American Subjectivity.” She would also like to thank Dr. Jonathan Davis-Secord, who led the UNM English Job Seeker’s Workshop in Fall 2014, and the many other faculty members who participated in these workshops. Erin looks forward to working within close proximity to many excellent Texas archives, though she will miss her home state of New Mexico tremendously. Please feel free to send green chili to her new UTA address!
