2012-2013 Placement Service Now Open

The automated system for the 2012-2013 APA/AIA Placement Service is now open and accepting registrations by candidates, subscribers, and institutions.  As was the case last year, registrants will need to create an account at placement.apaclassics.org and then purchase the service(s) they wish.  Registrants who used the Service last year may (but are not required to) adopt the same username and password as before; however, they will still need to create a new account.  Detailed instructions for registering for the service and then taking advantage of its features are available at the Placement web site. 

Please note the following important changes in the service this year.

Publication of Listings.  Positions for Classicists and Archaeologists will be published around the 15th of each month as before.  Publication will consist of sending a digest of all positions listed during the previous 30 days to registered candidates, subscribers, and institutions that purchased comprehensive service.  In addition, a few days later, APA and AIA will publish the job listings on their web sites, www.apaclassics.org and www.archaeological.orgNote:  Because of the delayed opening of the Service this month, the July 2012 issue of Positions will be published around August 1.  Regular publication around the 15th of the month will begin with the August issue.

As was the case last year, candidates and subscribers who register for the Placement Service will have access to a restricted web site where new position listings will be posted as soon as they are reviewed for completeness.  In addition, candidates and subscribers will receive an e-mail on the day following the posting of any new advertisement.  This e-mail will list the institution placing the advertisement and direct candidates to the restricted web site for further information.  Because of the introduction of these e-mail notifications, the Service will no longer publish an “early edition” around the 1st of each month. 

Membership.  Persons wishing to register as candidates will no longer be required to be members of APA or AIA, but will pay a higher fee ($55 instead of $20) if they register as nonmembers.  Membership will be verified against lists which are updated monthly at the beginning of each month.  For example, if you paid your society dues in July, you will not appear on the verification list until August and will not be able to register at the lower rate until August.  The Placement Service will not refund a higher registration rate if a candidate or subscriber who pays that rate later becomes eligible for the lower rate. 

If you have forgotten your APA member number and you provided your e-mail address when you paid your dues, you can retrieve your number here.

In any case, dues must be paid no later than October 31, 2012, to qualify for the reduced member rate.

If you believe that you paid your association dues at least a month before the date you are registering, but the system does not recognize you as a member, you can check on APA dues payments and member numbers by sending an e-mail to jrnlcirc@press.jhu.edu.  You can check on AIA dues payments and member numbers by sending an e-mail to Membership@aia.bu.edu.  If you are certain that you are a member in good standing of one of the societies, send an e-mail to the Placement Director, plonskii@sas.upenn.edu

Institutional Registration.  The cost of comprehensive service for Institutions has been increased to $400 for an e-mail subscription to Positions and $450 for print.  The prices for advertisement-only services have been increased to $150 before January 10 and $125 after that date.  This is the first increase in these prices in a decade.

Please let Placement Director, Renie Plonski or me know if you encounter any difficulty using the system.

APA Executive Director

Dear Colleague:
 
This afternoon, the U.S. House of Representatives began debating the Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies spending bill (H.R. 2584).  In last week’s action alert, I mentioned that amendments could be offered on the floor that would further reduce funding for the National Endowment for the Humanities beyond the $135 million in FY 2012 funding approved by the Appropriations Committee (a $19.7 million, or 13% cut from the current year).
 
Just hours ago, Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-KS) offered an amendment to reduce funding in the Interior bill by $3 billion in various accounts, including $1.9 billion in EPA spending, as well as complete elimination of the National Endowment for the Humanities and the National Endowment for the Arts (among other programs).  The Huelskamp amendment failed by voice vote, but a recorded vote was requested, and is expected to take place tonight.
 
Even if the current measure fails, additional amendments to weaken funding for NEH may be offered during this week’s floor consideration of the FY12 Interior bill.  If you have not already done so, please email your Representative and ask him/her to:

Posted on behalf of APA President Kathleen M. Coleman
 
Dear APA members,
 
Many of you will be aware of the drastic cuts threatening the Department of Classics and Philosophy at Royal Holloway, University of London. 
 
As the APA's immediate response to this crisis, the Board of Directors has taken the following steps. First, together with John Miller, Chair of the APA's Classics Advisory Service, I am composing a letter to send to the Principal of Royal Holloway protesting against these proposals. Second, Ruth Scodel, a former President of the APA, will be in the UK on September 16 and has agreed to represent the APA at a symposium in London that day celebrating Classics at Royal Holloway and Bedford (Bedford College having merged with Royal Holloway College in 1985); Professor Scodel will be a powerful presence, and I am most grateful to her for representing us.
