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.

Adam D. Blistein
APA Executive Director

A shirtless black man with tattoos and a red bandana sits on a box of records facing right. He looks at a black boy in a red and white striped shirt. Both of their shadows are visible on the wall behind them.

Because it’s spirits, we ain’t even really rappin’
We just letting our dead homies tell stories for us.

Tupac Shakur, saying these words to journalist Mats Nileskär in 1994, articulated the centrality of community and collective history to hip hop and offered his response to the vexed question of the wellspring of poetic inspiration. Nearly two decades after Tupac’s murder, Pulitzer Prize-winning rapper Kendrick Lamar gave new life to those words in his track “Mortal Man,” recasting Nileskär’s interview and intersplicing Tupac’s voice with his own, so that it is Lamar who seems to be in dialogue with Tupac. The result is an impossible conversation between the living and the dead: impossible because Tupac died when Lamar was just nine years old. But in highlighting and embodying Tupac’s perception that rap gives voice to the stories of one’s dead comrades, Lamar’s “sampling” of the conversation centers Tupac’s vision and acknowledges the debt Lamar owes to his predecessors, cementing the connection between them.

Four women in white tunics sit and lie in a landscape of ferns. Some play instruments.

If you attended the 2022 Annual Meeting earlier this year — and if you woke up bright and early on Saturday morning! — you may have been lucky enough to tune in to the very first panel sponsored by the Ancient Worlds, Modern Communities Initiative (AnWoMoCo). Recent recipients of a microgrant from this program gathered from all over America, Canada, and even Ghana to present seven exciting public-facing projects that aim to bring Classics and Ancient Mediterranean Studies out of the ivory tower. The goal is to reach audiences, organizations, and people who might otherwise never have the opportunity to engage with the history, literature, language, archaeology, culture, texts, and individuals of the ancient Mediterranean world.

Ten presenters shared their projects, which ranged from primary school curricula, prison programming, visual and performing arts, and digital initiatives. I was beyond inspired by all of the incredible people who presented that day, so I jumped at the chance to summarize their contributions here for those who missed it.
