Medievalist Job Market Round Table

At the Leeds Medieval Studies Congress this week, I'm on a roundtable discussion about the job market in multiple countries. Now while it's true I've taught in Canada and held part-time faculty positions in England and America, plus applied to a fair number of jobs along the way, I can't say as how I feel I necessarily know much about the market more broadly.

I occasionally browse the AHA's reports on the History market generically. I have lots of anecdotal information about job-getting experiences. But I would love to have more input in advance from any of who you can comment on the job market for medievalists, from any angle.
