Interterm Colloquium Green Dean Position Available
Graduating seniors and recent grads are invited to apply for a "green dean" position in the Office of Public Affairs. The incumbent's primary responsibilities involve managing a program that brings distinguished speakers to campus during Interterm. The Interterm Colloquium Coordinator will be responsible for working with faculty, students and others to develop themes for these colloquia, and for coordinating all of the logistics to ensure the success of the program.

The coordinator will also be assigned other special projects, often involving direct responsibility for speakers and other programs on campus. Previous experience initiating and arranging campus programs is particularly useful. Applicants should be comfortable interacting with a range of on- and off- campus constituents. Ability to prepare written proposals for review and discussion will be useful. Attention to detail is also an important part of the job. Interested applicants should submit a resume, cover letter, and the names of three references to Stacey Schmeidel, director of public affairs, AC #2202 or saschmeidel@amherst.edu as soon as possible. For more information, contact Stacey Schmeidel or current Interterm Colloquium Fellow Nel Brewster '06.

"Afternoons with Emily" Program on June 23
On Saturday, June 23, at 2 p.m., the Emily Dickinson Museum will host an informal talk and reception for Afternoons with Emily, a posthumously- published debut novel by Rose MacMurray. MacMurray passed away unexpectedly in 1997, days after she finished the novel that was inspired by her keen interest in Emily Dickinson. Adelaide MacMurray Aitken, MacMurray's daughter, will speak about the story behind Afternoons with Emily and will read excerpts. Aitken collaborated with other family members and friends to publish the book almost a decade after its completion. After the program, the novel will be available for purchase. To reserve a copy of the novel, please call 413/542- 8429. The program will take place at the museum, which is located at 280 Main St.
