ANNOUNCEMENTS It is with deep regret that the Editors learned of the death of Walter Kaufmann, a member of the Editorial Advisory Board of Philosophy and Literature, a man whose achievements as philosopher, translator, critic, and photographer will long be remembered and studied. His abiding concern for human suffering and human excellence led him to cross disciplinary boundaries in order to attain the highest levels of humanistic scholarship. Walter Kaufmann understood and was able eloquently to express what literature and philosophy have to offer one another. The School of Criticism and Theory, formerly at the University of California, Irvine, will resume its summer sessions at Northwestern University in 1981. Postdoctoral teachers and graduate students in literature, the arts, and the humanities, both in the United States and abroad, are invited to apply for the six-week program. Further information may be had by writing the program's director, Professor Murray Krieger, School of Criticism and Theory, University of California, Irvine, California 92717. The International Association for Philosophy and Literature, an organization with no direct connection to this journal, will hold its Sixth Annual Conference in May of 1981 at the State University of New York at Albany. The general topic will be "Representations." Speakers so far scheduled include William Gass, Geoffrey Hartman, and Paul Ricoeur. Individuals wishing to attend or to present papers at the conference can obtain more information by contacting Professor T. R. Martland, Department of Philosophy, SUNY, Albany, New York 12222. The journal Prose Studies 1800-1900 has broadened its format to include non-fictional prose of all periods and will now be published under the title Prose Studies. The editors, Philip Dodd and Ian Hilson, welcome articles and proposals for articles on individual non-fiction texts, the convention of non-fictional genres, and the theory of prose discourse. They may be reached at the Department of English, University of Leicester, Leicester LEI 7RH, England. Philosophy and Literature recently received a subscription renewal from one of its Charter Subscribers. We thank Professor Czeslaw Milosz for his continued interest and faithful support, and we congratulate him on his receipt of the 1980 Nobel Prize for Literature. 284 ...
