Chair

The Open University is advertising for a Chair in Classical Studies.  Details here.  Note the emphasis in the advertisement on reception studies, couched in the horrid second-person address that these ads sometimes use:
You will be a leader in research who can build on the Department’s achievements in reception studies and develop research into the bond between the study of the ancient world and the creation of knowledge and culture in recent and contemporary societies.

But it would make a terrific fortune cookie! Think: you could set out a bowl of them at the next dept'l function.
