Message 1: a corpus of spoken Italian: rectifying the address

Subject: a corpus of spoken Italian: rectifying the address

Dear Colleagues,

I recently spread the news that the following speech corpus:

"Archivio di Variet´┐Ż di Italiano Parlato"
"Archive of spoken Italian varieties"

is available in cd format (limited number of copies) as well as by ftp.

Unfortunately, I happened to give the wrong address for the ftp area.
The good one is:
(username "anonymous", password "your e-mail address"; the materials 
are contained in the folder cirass/pub/avip).

Sorry for the inaccuracy.
Best regards

Pier Marco Bertinetto

Message 2: Call for U.S. Host Applications

Subject: Call for U.S. Host Applications

	from U.S. Host Institution
	for the 2002-2003 Academic Year	

 American Councils is pleased to announce opportunities for U.S. 
institutions to host participants of the Junior Faculty Development 
Program (JFDP) for the 2002-2003 academic year. JFDP is a non-degree, 
professional development program intended to provide opportunities for 
university faculty from ten Eurasian countries to develop new courses, 
implement curriculum reform, and cultivate new teaching skills and 
techniques through exposure to U.S. educational methods. JFDP participants
teach at higher educational institutions in their home countries in 
twenty-three academic disciplines of the humanities and social sciences. 
JFDP Fellows are selected through open competitions in Armenia, Azerbaijan,
Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Russia, Turkmenistan, Ukraine 
and Uzbekistan.

The Junior Faculty Development Program itself has a direct influence
on linguists and philologists from both the United States and the
participating countries of the former Soviet Union every year.
While the JFDP provides opportunities for scholars in various fields
of the humanities and social sciences, the majority of our yearly
group of one hundred plus scholars are linguists of English, Russian,
or other languages. The program allows these scholars to create a
network of contacts among U.S. linguists. In fact, we advertise the
LINGUIST listserv to our new group every year, to show them ways to
connect to the greater academic community in their field ofspecialization.
 JFDP Fellows help internationalize their U.S. host institutions by 
bringing cultural diversity and new perspectives in teaching and learning. 
Likewise, Fellows may serve as potential vehicles for on-going collaborati
ons and institutional partnerships. During the program, JFDP Fellows 
informally attend relevant courses in their fields of study. As visiting 
scholars, Fellows may make presentations, give special lectures, co-teach 
courses or participate in departmental projects, if such opportunities 
exist. U.S. hosts are asked to provide a faculty advisor who is willing 
to guide the Fellow with academic pursuits related to course development, 
professional networking, and research.
 JFDP is a fully funded program of the Bureau of Educational and 
Cultural Affairs (ECA) of the U.S. Department of State. Information and 
the host application are located at the JFDP Web-site:
 The JFDP Web-site offers a fully online application and an option to 
download the printable application. Printed applications may be faxed or 
mailed to the address below.
