EASSH POSITION PAPER

Please note that the EASSH, the European Alliance for Social Sciences and Humanities, continues advocating for an increased representation of the Humanities in EU programmes and funding lines. They have just published their latest position paper on "Improving Research Impact Assessment in Horizon Europe: A Perspective from the Social Sciences and Humanities". 

In this paper, the Alliance recommends that to best capture the impact of research, researchers must be enabled to use a diversity of methods, data sources and forms of explaining the impact of their projects. EASSH invites the European Commission to capture impact not project by project, but on the wider terrain of the overall calls’ aims."

PETITION TO RESTORE CLASSICS AT THE UNIVERSITY OF VERMONT

Please take note of an urgent appeal issued by the Department of Classics of Vermont University (Universitas Viridis Montis):

"Dear Friends and Colleagues,



We would be very grateful if you would sign our petition to reverse the 50% cut to Classics that the University of Vermont (UVM) has suffered in the last three years through an austerity regime of unreplaced retirements and rolling lecturer terminations. UVM is now undergoing an administrative change—influenced in part by campus-wide protests to humanities cutbacks—and we hope to prevail upon the incoming president (Suresh Garimella, currently Provost at Purdue) to restore us to the 2015 staffing level that was already deemed minimal by our external program review that same year (conducted by Jeffery Henderson and Richard Thomas).






Yours hopefully,

The Department of Classics, Universitas Viridis Montis"
