The Editor's home institution (generally a college or university) is expected to provide released time, office space, and clerical assistance at a level sufficient to produce high quality camera-ready copy for printing.

Appointment will be confirmed by the ACL Council at its June 2003 meeting, and the new Editor will be responsible for publication of the journal commencing with the Winter 2004 issue, following an orientation by the current Editor and Senior Associate Editor on the campus of the University of Georgia during the summer of 2003.
Calls for Papers

University of the Aegean, Island of Rhodes, Greece, 2-5 July 2003
Conference Theme: The Next World Order
The conference this year is being hosted by the Globalism Institute at RMIT, the University of the Aegean and Common Ground, Melbourne. It will be held on the campus of the University of the Aegean in Rhodes, just outside the walls of the World Heritage listed Old City.

The conference will include major keynote papers by internationally renowned speakers and numerous small-group workshop and paper presentation sessions. It will address the role of the humanities in the new world order. Globalisation so far has defined a common economic order, but, thankfully perhaps, not yet a common political or cultural society. All those researching and teaching in the area of the humanities have an urgent stake in discussing these future-shaping processes, whether these reflections are retrospective or prospective.  We cannot simply leave questions of our human futures to the dominance of technologists and economists.

The conference welcomes presentation proposals from right across then humanities, broadly conceived. These may present perspectives which are finely grained and empirical, or which are expansive and theoretical. Diversity of thought and expression is to be expected in a vibrant and relevant humanities. Papers submitted for the conference proceedings will be fully peer-refereed and published in print and electronic formats. If you are unable to attend the conference, virtual registrations are also available allowing access to the electronic versions of the conference proceedings, as well as virtual presentations which mean that your paper can be included in the refereeing process and published with the conference proceedings.

The deadline for the first round call for papers is 15 December 2002.  Full details of the conference, including an online call for papers form, are to be found at the conference website.

We do hope you will be able to attend this important and timely international conference.
