The most amazing job ad ever

Massachusetts College of Art and Design, Professor of Liberal Arts (Open Rank)

“The college seeks a candidate who is closely attentive to the artistry in a work of literature-its imagery, nuance, tone, ambiguity, and language-rather than to the work as a text for political or ideological polemic.”

“Requirements: Publications in peer-reviewed journals of literature and/or jargon-free publications treating literature not as raw material for “decorative” analysis but rather as the expression of the human spirit.”

I heard about it from Rebecca Schuman. Discuss this ad, is it even legal?

Also notice: “…and/or jargon-free publications.” That is, they do not care whether your piece was peer reviewed, only that it is “jargon-free.”
