REVIEW OF THE DEPARTMENT FOR
CONTINUING EDUCATION

Under the University's procedures for the regular review
of faculties and departments, the General Board has set
up a committee under the chairmanship of Professor P.C.
Newell to review the Department for Continuing Education.
The terms of the review are as follows:

to consider in the light of national and international
developments in part-time and continuing education:

—the quality, range, balance, and flexibility of
activities in which the Department for Continuing
Education is engaged;

—their future direction and scope;

—the management and organisation appropriate to
these activities and the methods by which they are
funded;

—the relationship of the department with other parts
of the University;

—and to make recommendations, bearing in mind, if
additional funding is required to implement them, the
likely measure of available resources.

Members of the University who wish to contribute to the
review are asked to forward their submission by Friday,
27 June, in writing or by e-mail, to the secretary of the
review committee, Ms M.A. Robertson, University Offices,

LANGUAGE CENTRE


Intensive Weekend Language
Courses

There are still some places available on the intensive
weekend courses which the Language Centre will be running
this term. Each course will consist of eight hours of
tuition with an emphasis on speaking and listening to the
language, running from 9 a.m. to 1.30 p.m. (on both
Saturday and Sunday) with a half-hour break. Some of the
material to be studied will be taken from satellite TV,
radio broadcasts, and newspaper articles. The maximum
number of participants per group will be fifteen. A fee
of £25 will be charged to junior members of the
University and other full-time students, £32 to
members of Congregation and members of staff, and
£40 to non-members.

Places are still available on the French course (weekend
of Saturday 24 May/Sunday 25 May) at the Near-Beginners,
Lower Intermediate, and Upper Intermediate levels; and on
the Spanish course, to be held on the same weekend, at
Lower Intermediate. Places are also available on the
German course (weekend of Saturday 7 June/Sunday 8 June)
at Absolute Beginners, Lower Intermediate, and Upper
Intermediate levels; and on the Italian course, to be
held on the same weekend, at Lower Intermediate.

SPEAKING BY JUNIOR MEMBERS IN
CONGREGATION

Mr Vice-Chancellor has, with the agreement of Council,
approved the following arrangements for junior members to
speak in Congregation under the terms of Ch. I, Sect x
(Statutes, 1995, p. 199), which reads as
follows:

`Any junior member as defined in Tit. XIV, Sect. iv,
1, cl. 2, may speak at a meeting of Congregation, if
called upon to do so by the Chairman at the Chairman's
discretion, provided that the Chairman may at any time
terminate a debate on the floor of the House and proceed
to the final speeches and the taking of a vote.'

The Chairman of Congregation will normally expect to call
upon nominated representatives of the Oxford University
Student Union if they wish to speak in debate, and will
normally expect to call upon junior members to speak only
from among those who have given advance notice of their
wish to be called. Should the Chairman consider that the
number of junior members who have given such notice is
excessive, he or she will have to be selective in calling
upon them. The Chairman will try to ensure a balanced
debate in relation to the apparent spread and strength of
views held by junior members. If informed selection is to
be possible it is desirable that when giving notice of
the wish to be called a junior member should indicate
(a) whether he or she intends to support or
oppose the motion before the House, (b) whether
he or she would speak on behalf of any club, committee,
group, or association, (c) whether he or she is
supported by other junior members (up to twelve of whom
might sign the notice).

If the number giving notice is small they will all
be admitted to the floor of the House although this does
not ensure their being called. In other cases some
selection may be necessary at the stages of both
admission and calling of speakers. If there is to be time
to tell applicants whether they will be admitted notice
will have to be received in good time. Junior members
should therefore send in such notice, in writing, to the
Registrar to be received at the University Offices not
later than 10 a.m. on the Monday preceding the debate in
question. The name of any representative nominated by
OUSU should also be communicated to the Registrar, in
writing, through the President by that time. A notice
will then be posted in the University Offices and on the
gate of the Clarendon Building not later than 10 a.m. on
the morning of the debate, indicating whether all
applicants will be admitted to the floor of the House or,
if selection has had to take place, the names of those
selected for admission to the floor.

Junior members not admitted to the floor of the
House will normally be permitted to listen to the debate
from the gallery. Junior members on the floor of the
House will be asked to remain in their places while a
vote is being taken.

Under Tit. XIV, Sect. iv, 1, cl. 2, junior
members are defined as `those persons who, having been
admitted to matriculation, are residing to fulfil the
requirements of any statute, decree, or regulation of the
University or reading for any degree, diploma, or
certificate of the University and who have not proceeded
to membership of Convocation'. (Membership of Convocation
is normally obtained by taking the MA degree.)

THE BRITISH ACADEMY


Research Readerships, British
Academy/Leverhulme Trust Senior Research Fellowships, and
British Academy Thank-Offering to Britain Fellowship in
the Humanities and Social Sciences

The British Academy has announced that, under its scheme
for
Research Readerships, it intends to confer on `serving
members of academic staff' the title of British Academy
Research Reader. There will be ten awards (including the
Mark Fitch Research Readership) tenable for two years
from 1 October 1998. The readerships will be awarded on a
competitive basis and are not renewable.

In addition, the academy has announced that, under the
scheme for
Senior Research Fellowships, it intends to confer, again
on members of academic staff, the title of British
Academy/Leverhulme Trust Senior Research Fellow. Under
this scheme there will be seven awards, as well as one
Thank-Offering to Britain Fellowship, tenable from 1
October 1998, of one year's duration. In exceptional
circumstances awards may be extended to a maximum of two
years.

Applicants will need to submit a programme of research
for the
Research Readerships and Senior Research Fellowships in
one or more of the following fields: the ancient world
(all aspects, including archaeology); history (of all
periods, and including the history of art, music, ideas,
science, etc.); philosophy; religious thought; language;
linguistics; literature; law; economics; politics;
sociology; psychology; social and cultural anthropology;
human geography. Appropriate subjects for the award of
the Thank-Offering to Britain Fellowship will be related
to Human Studies widely interpreted and their bearing
upon the well-being of the inhabitants of the United
Kingdom, and preference will be given to topics relating
to the modern period.

All award-holders are relieved of all teaching and
administrative duties, but may engage in limited
supervision of research students.

While they hold the relevant academy title, award-holders
of Research
Readerships, Senior Research Fellowships, and the
Thank-Offering to
Britain Fellowship will continue to receive their normal
stipend, and their employing institutions will be
expected to provide them with all the facilities
necessary to enable them to carry out their research
programme. Under the Research Readership scheme, the
academy will meet the cost of substitute teaching in a
form to be agreed up to a maximum sum equivalent to the
sixth point of the current national Lecturer A scale
(£16,927) in year one, and the seventh point
(£17,606) in year two; under the Senior Research
Fellowship and
Thank-Offering to Britain schemes the academy will meet
the agreed costs of substitute teaching up to the sixth
point on the university lecturer scale. Detailed
arrangements in any particular case will have to be
considered by the University and the college concerned,
and in consultation with the academy, once it is known
that the application is successful.

Candidates must be of an age to complete the award and
return to teaching afterwards to disseminate the results
of their research.
The academy will therefore not accept applications from
candidates aged over fifty-five on 1 October 1998.
Applications from candidates under the age of thirity-
five are discouraged. Applicants are not discouraged from
applying for the Research Readerships and the Senior
Research Fellowships simultaneously, but in such cases
two sets of separate and fully self-contained
applications should be submitted, with the research
project in each case tailored to the duration of the
award.

Applications under all schemes must be submitted through
the
University or through the college (for CUF lecturers).
Applicants holding joint appointments must, however,
obtain the support both of the University and of the
college concerned. The University will advise the academy
separately of its support for an application by a
CUF lecturer.

Further details and application forms in respect of the
schemes are available from the appropriate faculty board
secretaries, to whom applications should be returned as
soon as possible. The academy's closing date for the
receipt of applications is 31 July 1997.

Applicants will be informed of the results of their
applications by the academy in December 1997.
