      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, May 15.

      *  [snip]

      *  WOMEN ARE MORE LIKELY THAN MEN to be dissatisfied with the
         culture of their business schools, according to a survey
         released Friday, and the proportion of female students who
         enroll in the nation's top M.B.A. programs lags behind the
         proportion of women enrolling at leading law and medical
         schools.

      INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY

      *  SCHOLARS ARE ALREADY LOOKING at questions of race and
         cyberspace. Now it's time to bring the topic into the
         classroom, says Abdul Alkalimat, director of Africana studies
         at the University of Toledo. He will be teaching a new course
         in the fall that examines the impact of the information age
         on the black experience.

      A glance at the May issue of "Anthropology News":
      How anthropologists treat their non-tenure-track colleagues

      The code of ethics of the American Anthropological Association
      has a notable omission, writes Susan M. DiGiacomo, an assistant
      professor of anthropology at Middlebury College. "We are
      enjoined specifically not to abuse or exploit our students,
      human or animal subjects of research, or cultural materials and
      human remains," she writes. But the code is "absolutely silent
      on our ethical obligations toward our colleagues, at a time when
      exploitative hiring practices are bringing into being an
      academic underclass." Ms. DiGiacomo writes that the profession
      has done too little to fight for full-time positions, and has
      been too quick to rely on adjunct scholars who must "turn their
      c.v.'s inside out every year or even every semester to fit the
      needs of yet another department." The willingness of
      anthropologists to go along with this pattern is particularly
      galling, Ms. DiGiacomo writes, given the field's pride in having
      "special powers of insight into structural systems of
      inequality." The article is not available online, but
      information about the publication may be found at
