Congrats, Aaron.

Halifax, huh? I hear it's beautiful.

The city itself is just a city, though right on the coast which is nice. But get out a little ways and it's just breathtakingly gorgeous: a mix of exposed rock and tundra-like vegetation (tundra is my favorite biome).

There's an academic philosophy job market?

Lol, there isnít much of one.

Seven jobs in my specialty last year (in the US).

Thanks Andrew, Jim, Erik, Julie.

Congratulations, Aaron!
Nova Scotia could be a good place for writing as well.

Cheers,
John

Congratulations from me too, Aaron. I'm on the other coast, but I can still welcome you to the Great White North.

By the way, our greatest poet, E.J. Pratt, was originally from the maritimes before he went to study and teach at the University of Toronto.

My congratulations, too, Aaron!

Your specialty is philosophy of science, right? From pictures, Nova Scotia looks very pretty. I've wanted for years to take a summer or early fall trip up there. One day...

Way to go, Aaron! I'll be starting my dissertation next year, so I'm about three years away from a very similar process (in the English camp - early modern literature, specifically), and I already know how bleak the process is and how fraught the market has become. Dalhousie is definitely a great university, and you should enjoy the year (or more) in Canada!

We are just back from 2 weeks in Scotland, 3 days in Edinburgh and the rest of the time with my sister-in-law & her husband, who now live in the Highlands (village of Bettyhill, to be exact). We loved everything about the place, from Ben Loyal to sticky toffee pudding (which we would call chocolate cake with caramel sauce). And I was delighted to find some of the Lewis chessmen in the Scottish National Museum.
