Dear fellow Humanists,

Please bring this to the attention of any colleagues you may think

Thank you.


Connecticut College, a highly selective, coeducational, private liberal
arts college, seeks nominations and applications for the nation's first
endowed chair in Judaic Studies named for Nobel Laureate Elie Wiesel.
This senior appointment will be made in the Department of Religious
Studies. The Elie Wiesel Professor must be a distinguished scholar who
will teach two courses each semester and develop Judaic Studies in a
liberal arts framework. Competence in issues of modern Judaism,
participation in the Department's innovative team-taught "Introduction
to the Study of Religion", and interest in theories of religion will be
especially welcome.

The position will be supported by strong library holdings (including the
Motzkin Judaica Collection), the personal involvement of Elie Wiesel,
and a distinguished Advisory Committee that will work to raise further
endowment to support Judaic Studies.

Screening of applications will begin December 1 and continue until the
position is filled. Send nominations or applications, including a
curriculum vitae, to Elie Wiesel Chair Search Committee, Connecticut
College, Room 203-B, 270 Mohegan Avenue, New London, CT 06320-4196.
Connecticut College is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity

Academic Software Demonstrations at Annual AAR/SBL
Computer-Assisted Research Group (CARG)
New Orleans, November 17-20, 1990

Academic software developers attending the Annual Meeting of the AAR/SBL
(American Academy of Religion/Society of Biblical Literature) are
invited by the Computer-Assisted Research Group (CARG) to schedule
one-hour software demonstration sessions. The sessions will run from
9:00 AM to 6:00 PM on Sunday and Monday, November 18-19, beginning
hourly (NN:00) and ending at ten-till the hour (NN:50). A schedule of
demonstration sessions will be announced and circulated in print at the
main CARG program session on Saturday (1:00 - 5:30 PM, Marriott - La
Galerie 5).

The platforms supported for these demonstrations are IBM-PC (DOS), MAC
(SE or II) and Micro-IBYCUS, each with a CD-ROM drive. Of course, you
may bring NeXT or Sparc if you have one; inquire about others. DataShow
(or equivalent) projection equipment will be available. For best
results, plan to bring your own computer from the exhibit hall, as this
will save you set-up time and ensure that you have a proper system.
CARG cannot guarantee that micro-computers in the CARG Demonstration
Room will have an OS (version), RAM, video and fonts that you may
require for your software. The demonstration slots are open to both
institutionally-affiliated and commercial software developers.

If you wish to arrange for a demonstration session, contact: Professor
Alan Groves, Westminster Theological Seminary, (1 215) 887-5511. Please
have a couple date/time alternatives in mind.
