Lectionary Lunches
Lectionary Lunches During Lent (Feb. 26 to April 9) will be held on Thursdays from 1 to 2 p.m. on the Mezzanine in Valentine. Why does Jesus continue to be important? Did he preach heresy or sedition? Was he a blasphemer? Was he dangerous? Bring your own questions for discussion.

Faculty Invited to Teaching & Advising Lunch
The next Teaching & Advising Lunch will be on Friday, March 6, at noon in the Mullins and Faerber Rooms of the Lewis- Sebring Dining Commons. The title of the program is "Getting Grants." It's useful to remember, in these hard economic times, that there are multiple funding sources to support faculty research, travel and publications. While we are well aware of some of them, others are more obscure, and it's hard to learn about them. Join Lisa Stoffer, Amherst's Director of Foundation and Corporate Relations, and some faculty colleagues who have had experience receiving and evaluating grants for a discussion of where we can look for funding and what makes for a successful proposal. Contact Amrita Basu at abasu@amherst.edu with questions or comments.

Writing Center Reschedules Exploratory Drafts Workshop for March 9
"Turning Over a New Leaf: Exploratory Drafts" has been rescheduled to meet on Monday, March 9, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. This hands-on workshop is designed to help students who are not performing up to their potential because of an aversion to writing. This workshop aims to modify your thinking about the writing process by helping you to distinguish between the roles of creator and critic, as well as to rethink the idea of a draft-- both the purpose of a draft and what a draft might look like. This workshop is especially aimed at students who have been struggling to find a less painful and more productive writing process. It will be taught by Writing Associate Kristen Brookes, with Writing Fellow Michael Donovan. Enrollment is limited; read more and preregister at the following link.
