The Modern Language Association Job Information List has been published since 1965. As part of another project I am working on, I OCRed the complete archive from April 1965 to present. In this post today, I note first mentions of key words or disciplinary phrases reheated to rhetorical studies and technology.

See: http://rid.olfo.org/2014/01/mlajil/ for fulltext of this fascinating historical exercise.

December 2012; however, a limited number of earlier key
