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