MOVING TO FRONT FROM NOVEMBER 19, 2013 (originally posted Nov. 8, 2013)
I last posted a list of these at the end of last year; as I explained then (basically repeating what a philosopher elsewhere had said to me): "the fact of a senior offer is a more tangible indication of how at least one other department evaluates the philosopher's work....I will [now] report senior offers declined when it is confirmed by the candidate or his/her (home or hiring) department chair." For this post, I am seeking information about tenured offers declined during 2013.
If you are the candidate or the home or hiring department chair, you may post the information below; alternatively you may e-mail me at bleiter-at-uchicago-dot-edu, and I will post an updated list next week.
Brie Gertler (philosophy of mind) at University of Virginia turned down an offer from Rice University.
Anthony Gillies (philosophy of language, epistemology) at Rutgers University, New Brunswick turned down an offer from the University of Texas at Austin.
Jonathan Schaffer (metaphysics) at Rutgers University, New Brusnwick turned down an offer from Cornell University.
Susanna Schellenberg (philosophy of mind & language, epistemology) at Rutgers University, New Brunswick turned down an offer from Cornell University.
Iain Thomson (Continental philosophy) at the University of New Mexico turned down an offer from the University of South Florida.
R. Jay Wallace (ethics, philosophy of action) at the University of California at Berkeley turned down an offer of the White's Chair in Moral Philosophy from Oxford University.
