WASHINGTON D.C.--Georgetown University Press is pleased to

editor for its Georgetown Languages division. Dr. Nicholls brings many
years of publishing experience to Georgetown and will work closely

University Press. ''His expertise in languages and linguistics will be a
critical asset as we expand our presence in these fields.''

Dr. Nicholls most recently spent ten years at the Modern Language
Association as its Director of Book Publications.In addition to his work

Dr. Nicholls has served on committees of the Association of American

publications in languages and linguistics, and I'm eager to help develop
an expanded set of offerings in the Languages program,'' Nicholls said.
''It is heartening that the press is poised for growth in this vital area of
teaching and scholarship.''
