I have not had the opportunity to scrutinize it carefully yet, but the JFP looks pretty bad-- at least as bad as last year's. Although the overall number of ads seems like an improvement, there seems to be a sizable portion of open rank positions and non tt positions. Moreover, many of the "web only" ads are repeats of the summer ads, and I'll bet that may of the remaining "web onlys" will be reappear in the November JFP.
Ongoing trends seem to be: Ethics, Social & Political, and Philosophy of Law seem disproportionally well represented, as does Ancient.
If anyone has had the chance to study closely the JFP, please feel free to share your findings.
