Appended is the newly compiled job listing from the Society for Cinema
Studies--which was compiled by Henry Jenkins and Jane Shattuc.
At 276 lines, I realize that this is perhaps a bit long for a normal
SCREEN-L message. I figured that it was important enough to risk
sending it out in its complete form.
I will also, on Monday probably, put a copy of it on SCREEN-L FILELIST
for acquisition that way (further details later).
If this message causes any problems (due to its length) please let me
know directly at [log in to unmask] and next time we will only post
it on SCREEN-L FILELIST and not send it out to the entire SCREEN-L
Society for Cinema Studies
