Following on my book, *The Critical Fall and Rise of John Marston,* I'm now
working on an edition of new essays on John Marston's plays for Cambridge
University Press, timed to coincide with the fourth centenary of his debut as a
dramatist.
 
Almost all of the contributors are already set, but our CUP editor would like
perhaps two more essays in the volume. If anyone is currently working on
Marston's plays, particularly from a New Historicist perspective, I would be
interested in hearing about your work.

Colleagues,
 
FYI:  Today I learned (via e-mail) that 38 South Carolina legislators have
co-signed a bill to prohibit public institutions from granting tenure to
non-tenured faculty and to require that an alternative to tenure be devised for
all tenured faculty.  (I will provide a complete text of the bill, which was
abundantly clear, if interest warrants it.)
 
Whatever may ail tenure as a system of protecting intellectual freedom, this a
ction seems an outrageously inappropriate treatment. Even as a non-tenured,
non-tenure-track, part-time faculty member, I am  distressed that a legislative
body might even discuss such a radically draconian measure.
 
Watch the skies!
