E-bulletin for faculty, staff, and graduate students

Summertime shot of the Literatures, Cultures & Linguistics Building

Happening at SLCL provides information about events, deadlines, and other opportunities for faculty, staff, and graduate students at the School of Literatures, Cultures & Linguistics. It was created to minimize the number of individual emails being sent out within the school, advertising specific events or opportunities. During the academic year, this publication is sent out biweekly on Fridays when there are events to share.

What entries are included?

Happening at SLCL includes events, deadlines, and opportunities that would be of interest to our faculty, staff, and graduate students. This e-bulletin gives priority to submissions with broader appeal and submissions from our 12 departments, units, and programs. It will also consider submissions from across campus that are sponsored or coordinated by affiliated units and programs, involve members of the school, or cover topics that are relevant to the school's work and interests. Entries must appeal to members of the school and be humanities-related, with an emphasis on literatures, cultures, and linguistics. The school will have the final decision on what is appropriate content for the bulletin. 

What information should I include in my entry?

This bulletin relies on submitted information, so please make sure your entry includes all important details: event or opportunity name, date, time, location, registration information, speaker, contact, sponsor(s) and a brief description of the event or opportunity. 

I submitted my entry before the deadline. Why isn’t it in the bulletin?

There are a few possible reasons. First, to keep the bulletin timely and relevant, we generally preview events that are happening in the next two weeks. Exceptions include events with early registration or application deadlines, or events submitted during slow points in the year. If you submit an event early or add it to your calendar multiple weeks in advance, there's no need to resubmit. We'll keep your entry on file. Or, your event might not align with the e-bulletin's standards (please see above for more on this). Finally, it's possible we simply didn't have space. 

Do you edit the entries? 

Yes. We will shorten entries to fit the character limit as needed and edit entries for spelling, clarity, and grammatical mistakes. We may also edit the format of an entry, including date and time, to be consistent. 

Can you publish my entry more than once?

To prevent the bulletin from getting redundant or outdated, we generally publish individual events only once. For recurring events (such as conversation hours, where people can drop in at any point), we are introducing a new recurring events section at the bottom of each e-bulletin. 

Can I email you my event information? 

We ask that you please add your event to your unit's calendar through Webtools or submit your event information using this form. If you have questions, contact our communications coordinator

How do I opt out of this email? 

This bulletin is intended to minimize the number of individual advertisements hitting the inboxes of our faculty, staff, and graduate students. Because the information it contains is specifically designed for them and is sent directly to the school's faculty, staff, and graduate student listservs, they may not opt out.
