Institution/Organization: (formerly of) Tulane University, New Orleans

Notice: I was writing my dissertation (cognitive semantics/lexicography) at Tulane U, New Orleans before Katrina. I need a new host institution, or better, a job. I have extensive successful teaching experience and references.

My partner and I intend to relocate where she can finish her M.S. in Speech pathology (she was at LSU, New Orleans). We are especially interested in opportunities in the Western U.S. --Arizona, Colorado, Wyoming, etc.
