OK, blogosphere, here's a question for you:
I am sending out one last application (don't they have a late deadline?). In their ad, they only request a letter, vita, & list of references. I usually include publications and sample teaching materials, too. I emailed the search committee chair two weeks ago to see if they really just wanted the bare minimum or if they were happy to receive additional materials. I have not heard back. I have posted sample teaching materials on my website and already had pubs there (and I have mentioned this in my cover letter), so do you think I should still include one or two articles with my application? I don't want to annoy them if they really just want what they ask, but I hate to have such a thin file deciding my fate!
Any thoughts would be appreciated!
