Have any news for the AALS section newsletter? Here's how to get it to the right person:
What kinds of news might I submit?
1. News and Accomplishments: If you have personally changed schools or received a promotion (title or contract changes) since the last newsletter, please e-mail email@example.com. If your news is a promotion or status change, please be as specific as possible, for example, the nature of the promotion, the type of status change, etc. Please also send information about any advances your school's program has made since the winter/spring newsletter was published.
2. Publications. If you have published an article or book since the last newsletter, please send me the name of the article or book as well as its citation.
3. Q and A: There are plans for a Q & A page in the newsletter. Its success is up to you. Here's the question:
What unique or interesting ways have you found to engage students in learning what they might otherwise perceive to be a dry skill or topic (small-scale organization or research, for example)?
Please email your answer to this question to firstname.lastname@example.org. Space permitting, it will be published. Charts and diagrams are welcome if they do not take up too much space.
4. Conferences: Please e-mail information about any upcoming regional conferences if you would like me to include that information in the newsletter.
The DEADLINE is September 15, 2007. (Earlier e-mails are more than welcome!)
