ANNOUNCEMENTS The editors of Philosophy and Literature are delighted to announce new editorial arrangements. As from the journal's inception, the Editor is Denis Dutton, who now takes up a new position at the University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand. Patrick Henry of Whitman College becomes Coeditor and his offices will provide a North American address for the journal (see inside back cover). Martha Nussbaum and Jesse Kalin will continue to work with the journal as Editorial Board member and Associate Editor, respectively . Production and subscriptions will continue to be handled by The Johns Hopkins University Press, under the sponsorship of Whitman College. We wish to express our thanks to all the individuals — Editorial Board members, contributors, and subscribers — whose involvement and support have helped the journal to flourish over the past near-decade. The growth of Philosophy and Literature, coming at a time when it has been exceedingly difficult to launch new journals, has richly justified our original conviction of a need for a publication devoted to the insights literary studies and philosophy offer one another. Faculty members in the departments of English and Philosophy at Purdue University have announced a special doctoral program in literature and philosophy. Fellowships and assistantships are available for this program, which is organized by a committee which includes Calvin Schräg, William Epstein, Virgil Lokke, William McBride, and Robert Magliola. Admission to the program requires a master's degree in either English or philosophy. Further information may be obtained by writing Professor Schräg, Department of Philosophy, Purdue University, West Lafayette, Indiana 47907. The editors welcome the appearance of a new journal, Empirical Studies of the Arts, edited by Colin Martindale of the University of Maine at Orono. The first issue includes discussions of "cognitive processes in understanding metaphor" and of the experience of listening to jazz, as well as an interesting account of some of the typical ways that art forgers justify themselves. Further information about the journal can be obtained by writing the Baywood Publishing Company , 120 Marine Street, P.O. Box D, Farmingdale, New York 11735. 148 Announcements149 The University of Dayton announces a colloquium entitled "Narrative, Character, Community, and Ethics," for November 2 & 3, 1984.

Also in November will be the Fourth Symposium on Comparative Literature and International Studies. The special topic for this meeting will be "Literature and War." Write Elizabeth W. Trahan of the Monterey Institute of International Studies for details. The address is P.O. Box 1978, Monterey, California 93940. University ofHartford Studies in Literature is publishing a special double issue on "Literature and Religion." This is part of that journal's continued dedication to interdisciplinary work between literary and other scholarly studies. Information both about subscriptions and the submission of manuscripts can be obtained from the Coeditors, Catherine Stevenson and Charles Ross, Department of English, University of Hartford, Hartford, Connecticut 06117. We have received news of Concept, a journal devoted exclusively to work by graduate students. Though it describes itself as a philosophy journal, Concept is seeking manuscripts on "a wide range of social, political, economic, literary, and scientific concerns."
