This is a bizarre story. In brief: department offers candidate a job - candidate initiates negotiating request - department gets huffy and rescinds job offer.

I have frequently used the "all they can do is refuse" line, but I never dreamed that it could backfire this spectacularly, especially when the requests were not completely out of line. 

This could shift the balance of power even further away job-seekers. And can I just say that philosophy seems like an awfully messed up discipline ?

The list of EC14 workshops and tutorials is now available.
With so many great events in parallel, it will be hard to decide which ones to attend!
