Anyone else getting very specific highly tailored academic spam from D * n L e j e r s k a r at
e o n r e a l i t y including "investment opportunities."

I'd just can it, but these are not repetitive. They are additive in content. They smoothly and correctly insert a lot of information about me. And, it's the quality of the info such as only relevant courses, none of the irrelevant ones.

Is scraping that good now? Or, I wonder about someone in AR who may have shared an assoc membership list.

... So we are looking for 4 week full-time online/remote study abroad-like or internship programs for Japanese students in an EMI/CLIL social sciences program with high English language proficiency.

Any leads? Is your uni going to start setting up stuff like this to replace the gaping hole in your budget from no int'l students?

We'll be looking for full time half or full year remote international study as well soon, I think.

Ideas? Want to talk about requirements? Plans? 2/

So, my students are in a jam. And, that means my program is in a jam. They must study abroad or do an international internship as a graduation requirement, but that ain't happening in the usual way now is it?

We have found three short-term online/virtual programs: University of Oregon CASLS 2-2wk courses; FPT University, Danang; 4 week internship working remotely; 4 week language and culture at Deakin U, Victoria. 1/

Might be an interesting and valuable opportunity for someone in IR. I get their newsletter and it is useful.

"We typically seek applications from students, early career academics, and those currently in a break from study. We do not limit ourselves to Politics/IR – if you come from a different academic area but have something to say about political issues, you are welcome!"

Ahh.... completed a paper draft. Nice to have it done. You can view and comment here (plenty of time to make changes yet).

Met a teacher from a university in Beijing at the conference dinner last night. (Which was really good btw) His uni said first two weeks of upcoming term will be taught all online. Which good considering at the rate things are going he's not sure he'll even be able to get home.

About to get on the plane to conference. Last time I went was probably 2006? Looking forward to this a lot.

Fully enjoying Sunn 0))) Life Metal as the accompaniment to syllabus input for next year.

Working on revising the conference slides. A full ten days before the conference!

Tenured position available in my faculty at Gakushuin ISS.

教授または准教授の公募(アジア経済論(「地域研究の手法」を含む))

Must be able to teach in Japanese and in English, but fully balanced bilingualism is not expected.

We have very good gender diversity compared to most faculties in Japan and I'd like to keep it that way. Would strongly suggest academics from other countries, especially in Asia, to apply

OK, smart people, especially linguists. Shorthand, gibberish, something else?

Request: can anyone make sense of these glyphs/symbols?

Acronym anxiety.

When you see NLP in somebody's bio and you wonder.... Is it the nightmare of Neuro-Linguistic Programming and you have to run away, or is it Natural Language Processing and you want to talk with them?

I just submitted to the 12th Linguistic Landscape Workshop
9-11 September 2020, University of Gothenburg, Sweden.

After years of toiling away in ELT, extensive reading, and , I've found something different and much more satisfying to research. But scary to do something new. A bit of a stretch and I still don't feel as comfortable with the language in this area. I can write an ELT-related proposal in my sleep, but this is harder. Wish me luck!
