      ACADEME TODAY: The Chronicle of Higher Education's
      Daily Report for subscribers
      ______________________________________________________________

      Good day!

      Here are news bulletins from The Chronicle of Higher Education
      for Monday, September 16.

      * [snip]

      * HIGHER EDUCATION IN ARAB COUNTRIES remains seriously
      inadequate, and those countries risk being left behind if
      their universities continue to produce low-level and
      unskilled graduates unsuitable for the changing job market,
      according to a new report by the World Economic Forum.

      A glance at Volume 28, Issue 1 of "Signs":
      Feminist academics remember 9/11

      In an issue called "Gender and Cultural Memory," feminist
      academics examine the tragedies of September 11, 2001, through
      the lens of gender-based scholarship.

      The 23 contributions vary wildly in form and subject matter.
      Helene Cixous, a visiting professor of French at Northwestern
      University, examines the gendered symbolism -- both phallic and
      feminine -- of the Twin Towers. Janice K. Haaken, a professor of
      psychology at Portland State University, examines American
      "cultural amnesia," which "narrowly focuses on concrete dramatic
      events while neglecting context." And Lorie Novak, chairwoman of
      the photography-and-imaging department at the Tisch School of
      the Arts at New York University, offers a pair of photographs of
      "missing" signs that were posted "Outside Bellevue Hospital, New
      York City, September 2001."

      The issue is not yet available online, but more information
      about the journal can be found at
