Un message de James Rives et Alban Baudou, éditeurs des Comptes rendus, Phoenix
Phoenix recherche en permanence des chercheur(e)s souhaitant rédiger des comptes rendus pour la revue. Nous ne connaissons cependant pas toujours les intérêts et les domaines d’expertise des gens ; dès lors, il est parfois difficile de parvenir à une juste adéquation entre livres et rapporteurs. Si vous êtes intéressé(e) à effectuer des recensions d’ouvrages pour Phoenix, nous vous serions reconnaissants de bien vouloir nous faire parvenir un bref message indiquant:
1) l’établissement auquel vous êtes rattaché(e);
2) les domaines dans lesquels vous seriez susceptibles de faire des comptes rendus;
3) vos propres intérêts en recherche.
La mention de deux ou trois publications récentes serait également utile.
Grâce à ces informations, nous serons en mesure d’établir une liste d’auteurs potentiels de compte rendu et pourrons vous contacter plus facilement si nous disposons d’un ouvrage dans le domaine qui est le vôtre.
Avec tous nos remerciements.

A message from James Rives and Alban Baudou, Review editors, Phoenix
Phoenix is always looking for scholars who would be willing to review books for the journal. But because we are not always aware of people’s interests and areas of expertise, it is sometimes difficult to match books with appropriate reviewers. If you are interested in reviewing books for Phoenix, we would be grateful if you could send us a brief message indicating:
1) your institutional affiliation,
2) the areas in which you would be willing to review books, and
3) your own research interests.
A list of two or three recent publications would also be helpful.
With this information we can compile a list of possible reviewers, and can contact you more easily if we have a book to review in your area of interest.

The Conference aims to develop an agenda for the humanities in an era otherwise dominated by scientific, technical and economic rationalisms. What is the role of the humanities in thinking the shape of the future and the human? Anthropology, Archaeology, Classics, Communication, English, Fine Arts, Geography, Government, History, Journalism, Languages, Linguistics, Literature, Media Studies, Philosophy, Politics, Sociology or Religion - these are just some of the many disciplines represented at the Humanities Conference.
The focus of papers ranges from the finely grained and empirical to the expansive and theoretical. Held at the University of the Aegean in Rhodes, the First International Conference on New Directions in the Humanities in July 2003, attracted 500 scholars from 15 countries.
The conference this year is being hosted by the Monash University Centre in Prato and the Monash Institute for the Study of Global Movements, in association with the Globalism Institute at RMIT, Melbourne. The Centre is located in the eighteenth century Palazzo Vaj in the historic centre of Prato - 30 minutes by train from Florence, and 15 minutes from the Florence International Airport.
The conference will include major keynote presentations by internationally renowned speakers and numerous small-group workshop and paper presentation sessions. Participants are also welcome to submit presentation proposals, either as 30 minute papers, 60 minute workshops or jointly presented 90 minute colloquium sessions. Presenters may choose to submit written papers for publication before or after the conference in the fully refereed International Journal of the Humanities, published in print and electronic formats. For those unable to attend the conference in person, virtual registrations are available, which provide access to the online edition of the conference proceedings. Virtual participants can also submit papers for refereeing and publication in the International Journal of the Humanities.
The deadline for the first round call for papers is 31 October 2003. Full details of the conference, including an online call for papers form, are to be found at the conference website.

The department is reorganising its reading room. It possesses a large number of duplicate issues of Phoenix from the 1960s onwards. We also have gaps in our holdings of Phoenix (and a few other journals). Ideally, we would like to exchange some issues for other ones, or perhaps to sell some of the excess issues of Phoenix. We also have a good stock of copies of P. Brind'Amour, Le Calendrier romain (Univ. of Ottawa Press, 1983), which we are willing to sell ($20, including postage within Canada, cheques payable to the University of Ottawa). Please contact Geoffrey Greatrex <firstname.lastname@example.org> for more details.
