The panel took place on June 2 at the annual conference of the International Association for Philosophy and Literature (IAPL) in Tallinn, Estonia.

William Melaney

May 29th, 2012

William Melaney, Associate Professor in the Department of English & Comparative Literature gave a paper entitled “Rancière’s Aesthetic Criticism: Revisiting the Present Age,” on May 29 at the International Association for Philosophy and Literature (IAPL) in Tallinn, Estonia.

William Melaney

February 1st, 2012

William Melaney, Associate Professor in the Department of English and Comparative Literature (ECLT), has recently published his book, Material Difference: Modernism and the Allegories of Discourse (Amsterdam and New York: Rodopi Publishing, 2012), 255 pp. A short overivew and the complete table of contents can be found by clicking HERE.

Dear Colleagues:

What follows is a list of all Faculty Support Grants approved from the September application cycle. (Graduate Student Grants are now handled by Dr. Amr Shaarawi, Dean of Graduate Studies; inquiries can be made with his office.) All unsuccessful applicants have already been informed by email. If you think you have been wrongly omitted from the list, or if there is a typographical or other error in your listing, please let me know at gharman@aucegypt.edu. Such mistakes are easy to fix. Please note that under the new travel policy, my office will initially only be processing checks for the non-travel portion of your grant. As for the travel portion, you can either (a) book your tickets through the AUC Travel Office, or (b) book them yourself. The procedures for the two cases are as follows:

(a) The Travel Office will receive a list from me of everyone approved for travel for this cycle, including the destination and approximate dates. Since not everyone will choose to use the Travel Office, they will not automatically book your tickets for you; you must contact them to make this request, but please wait until at least Sunday, October 23 before doing so. Once the Travel Office tells us that you are booking through them, we will then pay the cost. Naturally, this amount will count against your annual maximum (which is $3,500 for Conference Grants and $6,500 for Research Grants).

(b) If you choose to book the tickets yourself, you must be reimbursed after travel is complete, after presenting your boarding passes for the whole of the trip. Please note that the amount of reimbursement will be determined by the Travel Office. If for some reason you need a more complicated itinerary than direct travel to the research/conference site, you are allowed to book such an itinerary, but of course you will only be reimbursed for what the fair price would have been for a direct route. Naturally, this amount will count against your annual maximum.

Important Note: faculty are not allowed more than the maximum amount in each grant category for any reason. If for example the airfare and per diem for a distant conference add up to more than $3,500, you may be left with some out-of-pocket expenses. Faculty are encouraged to consider this point when deciding on which conferences to attend during any given academic year.

Another Important Note (October 19): We do not process Conference Grants for which the letter of acceptance is still pending until the letter of acceptance is forwarded to my office.

Dr. Graham Harman, Associate Provost for Research Administration
