USA: MBA at Auburn, Graduate Assistantships Available

MBA Program at Auburn

Auburn's full-time MBA program is fully accredited by the AACSB International and consistently ranks well in the annual U.S.News & World Report MBA ranking surveys and profiles. Auburn MBA students come from all walks of life. It is the different cultural and educational backgrounds- in context with the constant pace of change in global business practices-that make each MBA class unique.

The current MBA class consists of students from ten U.S. states and seven foreign countries. Additionally, there are five students who have already completed another master's program and three students who currently hold a Ph.D. The mix of students with business degrees/backgrounds , engineering degrees, and degrees in liberal arts and the sciences is approximately one-third each. The application deadline for fall semester entry is March 1 each year.

Whatever their initial reason for becoming a part of the Auburn MBA program, once here, each student thrives as they work toward completing their degree and becoming a part of the Auburn family.

Auburn students come not only to receive a world-class education and degree, but also to be part of a growing family of individuals bound by a shared experience-a family unified by a way of life and long-lasting traditions. Here's what two students had to say about their Auburn experience:

Financial Aid

The Auburn University MBA Program does not generally offer scholarships or guaranteed financial aid to students, either U.S. or international, prior to
admission. However, if admitted, a student would be eligible to apply for one of a limited number of graduate research assistantships. Graduate assistantships can be awarded to applicants with strong GMAT scores. Assistantships carry a stipend of $600 per month (during the 9-month academic year and when classes are in session) and also include full waiver of tuition.

A treia zi a Festivalului PLAI va fi dedicatã workshopurilor de dans ºi muzicã, meºteºugurilor ºi teatrului.

Despre artiºtii prezenþi la PLAI 2007:

Pe lângã legendarul chitarist Paco de Lucia, Festivalul PLAI aduce la aceastã ediþie artiºti care reinventeazã muzica lumii ºi sound-ul electronic: Äl Jawala ºi Pentatones din Germania, precum ºi formaþia luxemburghezã Dullemajik.

În spirit multicultural, la Festivalul PLAI din acest an se va auzi, în premierã în România, “vocea Tibetului”, Yungchen Lhamo. De când a ajuns pe jos din Tibet în Dharamsala, reºedinþa lui Dalai Lama, Yungchen Lhamo a devenit cea mai importantã vocalistã tibetanã care concerteazã pe scena lumii. Numele de Yungchen i-a fost dat chiar de cãtre Dalai Lama, iar traducerea acestui nume este “zeiþa melodiei ºi a cântului”. De la scenele Operei din Sydney pânã la reflectoarele din Carnegie Hall, prestaþiile a cappella ale vocalistei tibetane au încântat audienþe din peste 70 de þãri.

Pe aceeaºi scenã, vor mai concerta Jean-Luc Ponty, Eldad Tarmu ºi Ternipe.

Jean-Luc Ponty
Muzician foarte apreciat ºi cunoscut în toatã lumea, Jean-Luc Ponty este un pionier ºi un incontestabil virtuoz al viorii în contextul jazz-rock-ului contemporan, fiind considerat un inovator care ºi-a aplicat viziunea unicã. Ponty s-a nãscut într-o familie de muzicieni ºi a absolvit Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris ca ºef de promoþie. A concerat într-o orchestrã simfonicã timp de trei ani iar mai apoi ºi-a început adevãrata aventurã experimentalã în lumea jazz-ului. Jean-Luc Ponty este ºi unul dintre primii jazzmani care au realizat un clip video care a revoluþionat industria de profil prin introducerea aºa-numitei tehnici “time lapse” ce utilizeazã imagini din care sunt eliminate periodic pasaje de o secundã. Jean-Luc Ponty este prezent la PLAI 2007 cu sprijinul Centrului Cultural Francez Timiºoara.

Eldad Tarmu
Deja cunoscut publicului timiºorean de la PLAI 2006, vibrafonistul ºi compozitorul de jazz Eldad Tarmu, american de origine israelianã, predã de 3 ani la Facultatea de Jazz „Richard Oschanitzky” de la Universitatea Tibiscus din Timiºoara. Numele sãu se leagã de festivaluri cunoscute de jazz din lume, la unele dintre ele fiind ºi director muzical. În cadrul festivalului PLAI, Eldad Tarmu a þinut ºi ateliere de vibrafon, acesta fiind instrumentul muzical preferat al artistului.

Ternipe
Ternipe este una dintre cele mai autentice formaþii de muzicã þigãneascã din Ungaria. Trupa promoveazã muzica folcloricã instrumentalã ºi noninstrumentalã , îmbinând atât influenþe ale culturii balcanice cât ºi ale Extremului Orient.

* Festivalul PLAI este organizat de cãtre Asociaþia Culturalã Sunet Ambianþã Timiºoara (ACSAT) ºi susþinut de ETA2U, la aniversarea a 15 ani de activitate, ºi 24 FUN ca partener media. PLAI este un festival independent, care aduce mai aproape de oameni forme diverse de exprimare a multiculturalitãþ ii, într-o atmosferã liberã ºi creativã.

Pânã în 31 iulie, preþul biletelor la Festivalul PLAI 2007 este de 25 RON pentru zilele de vineri, respectiv sâmbãtã. Pachetul pentru ambele zile costã 45 RON. Duminicã, intrarea este rezervatã doar celor care au bilet pentru una din zilele precedente. Din 1 august, preþul biletelor va fi de 30 RON/searã.

Scoala de Vara "ACT" la Cluj, 1-12 august

Institutul Roman pentru Actiune, Instruire si Cercetare in domeniul Pacii (PATRIR) va organiza in perioada 1-12 august Scoala de Vara “ACT”, un ansamblu de zece cursuri interactive la alegere, pe teme ca mediul si ecologia, drepturile omului, transformarea conflictelor, teatrul.

Evenimentele vor avea loc la sediul PATRIR, pe b-dul 1 Decembrie 1918, nr. 26 si sunt adresate in mod direct elevilor de liceu si studentilor.

Cursurile prezentate in cadrul programului Scolii de Vara sunt:

> Scoala: planificarea învatatului si implicarea în activitati (9 august)

Cum înveti? De ce înveti? Cum termini totul la timp? Cum învat eu cel mai bine? Ce altceva exista pe lânga scoala? Ce altceva as putea face pe lânga scoala? Scopul cursului este de a oferi atât metode simple de planificare a timpului si de învatare, cât si îndrumarea spre o educatie non-formala.

> Reciclarea deseurilor (11 august)

Prezentarea modalitatilor de reciclare a deseurilor. Tehnici, tehnologii de reciclare a materialelor plastice si a hârtiei. Exercitii: realizarea hârtiei manual, din hârtie reciclata. Prezentarile includ si filmulete.

> Aplicatii ale energiilor alternative (10 august)

Cursul va prezenta posibilitatile de utilizare a energiilor alternative regenerabile, cu focalizare pe energia solara. Vor fi prezentate instalatii de producere a energiei electrice si de captare a energiei termice. Exercitii- cu panouri solare, punerea în miscare a unor motoare, alimentarea sistemelor electronice.

> Refuza violenta! (1-3 august)

Cursul este destinat liceenilor si studentilor care doresc sa cunoasca modalitati nonviolente de abordare a conflictelor si de transformare constructiva a acestora. Vor fi abordate notiunile de conflict (elemente, tipuri), violenta (cauze, niveluri, solutii), nonviolenta (metode concrete), actiune, empatie, creativitate, comunitate. Discutiile si sesiunile de lucru vor aborda experientele de viata ale participantilor si vor contine atât prezentari ale conceptelor folosite de lucratori de pace si conflicte cât si sectiuni practice si exercitii. Cursul îsi propune sa ofere metode concrete pentru a aborda situatiile conflictuale si sa promoveze alternative la solutiile violente. Programul va fi interactiv si poate include un numar maxim de 20 de persoane.

> Secretele comunicarii eficiente (8 august)

Comunicarea în zilele noastre e foarte importanta, de aceea este necesar ca toata lumea sa înteleaga formele comunicarii (verbale, ale trupului, mimica, gesturile) si sa le foloseasca ca atare. Aici se impune si un anumit cod al comunicarii care include si bunele maniere, un anumit comportament în situatii diferite (scoala, interviu, când vorbesti în public). Trainingul va contine si unele joculete, cum sa dai si sa primesti feedback, o evaluare personala si sfaturi pentru îmbunatatirea si eficientizarea comunicarii în scopul obtinerii unor rezultate cât mai satisfacatoare.

> Biodiversitate: apel la descoperirea comorii ascunse a Clujului (4 august)

Acest curs are 2 parti, una preponderent teoretica si cealalta practica. Prima se doreste o introducere în tema biodiversitatii, o prezentare a notiunilor legate de acest subiect si importanta acesteia în viata oamenilor în general si în special în cazul clujenilor.
Partea practica va consta dintr-o excursie într-o zona protejata din judetul Cluj. În cadrul acestei excursii elevii vor avea ocazia sa vina în contact direct cu natura, sa constientizeze valoarea acesteia si sa fixeze notiunile prezentate prin exemple practice. De asemenea, la sfârsitul acestui curs, fiecare va putea sa prezinte o idee de cercetare a biodiversitatii/ de conservare/ de dezvoltare durabila care va fi votata, iar la sfârsit premiata de catre ceilalti elevi si de catre trainer.

> Fete si baieti / femei si barbati - Stereotipuri de rol de sex si consecinte asupra vietii sociale (8-9 august)

Simplul fapt de a te naste fata sau baiat în orice societate atrage asteptari, roluri si traiectorii de viata diferite si de multe ori inegale. Idealurile de masculinitate si feminitate prezente la nivelul societatii românesti exercita presiuni reale atât asupra fetelor-femeilor cât si asupra baietilor-barbatilo r de opta, în dorinta de a fi acceptati social, pentru anumite activitati si modele de comportament care pe termen lung pot influenta negativ dezvoltarea personalitatii. Multi barbati mai cred ca femeile sunt "sexul slab" si ca locul femeii este acasa, eventual "la cratita"; femeile sunt considerate uneori incapabile sa gândeasca, irationale; sau se presupune frecvent ca barbatii sunt în mod natural mai "agresivi", pornirile lor violente fiind încurajate. Atelierul de fata propune o serie de activitati practice pentru a analiza si întelege modul în care aceste stereotipuri se formeaza si ne influenteaza, punând în discutie valorile lor pozitive si negative pentru
dezvoltarea personala atât a femeilor, cât si a barbatilor. Dialogul se va axa pe identificarea provocarilor existente precum si a solutiilor, ideilor, alternativelor pe care le putem pune împreuna în practica.

> Teatrul ca mijloc de exprimare. Fii instrumentul! (în limba engleza, 1-5 august)

Oricine poate participa la acest curs; nu este nevoie de talente artistice sau de experienta în domeniul teatrului. Noi vrem sa folosim teatrul ca instrument: tu, corpul tau si lucrurile care te preocupa sunt cele cu care vrem sa lucram. Teatrul nostru se bazeaza pe improvizatii, pe exercitii simple si pe jocuri. Pas cu pas, vom învata cum sa ne exprimam prin intermediul uneltelor noastre proprii, cu scopul de a dobândi cunostinte, cum sa folosim mai bine instrumentul improvizatiei pentru a arata propriile noastre griji si conflicte. În timpul practicii si dupa aceea vom fi capabili sa propunem solutii, sa vorbim despre rezultate, sa reflectam asupra lor. În ultima zi de curs vom organiza o reprezentatie în strada.

> Toti avem dreptul la... Drepturile omului pe întelesul tuturor (10-12 august)

Cursul de drepturile omului ofera tinerilor participanti metode si concepte critice pentru a le da posibilitatea de a reflecta si de a-si mari dorinta de participare în cadrul comunitatii. Cursul va fi interactiv si va porni de la experientele personale ale participantilor pentru a cladi pe fundamentele teoretice si pe conceptele critice de drepturile omului, drepturile femeii, relatii internationale, pace, religie, drepturile minoritatilor, economie, filosofie, antropologie.

> Organisme modificate genetic- NO, THANKS! (12 august)

Stiati ca, pentru umflarea conturilor unor corporatii multinationale si în numele progresului tehnologic, unii oameni de stiinta introduc gene provenind de la animale, bacterii si alte organisme în plante obisnuite de cultura pentru a le face mai productive si pentru a reduce costurile de productie? România este cel mai mare producator de Organisme Modificate Genetic din Europa, dar majoritatea consumatorilor nu au cunostinta nici macar de existenta acestora. De exemplu soia modificata genetic sau derivate ale acesteia sunt prezente în mezeluri, alimente pentru vegetarieni, sosuri, produse de panificatie, în ciocolata, etc... Cine modifica? Ce se modifica? De ce se modifica? De ce ne opunem? Care sunt riscurile?

Taxa de participare se percepe în functie de numarul de zile alocat fiecarui curs, astfel:
- pentru 1 zi: 100.000 lei
- 2 zile: 150.000 lei
- 3-7 zile: 200.000 lei
- la cursul "Organisme modificate genetic-No,Thanks" nu se percepe taxa.

În cazul în care optati pentru al doilea curs, veti primi o reducere de 25.000 lei, iar la al treilea curs ales reducerea este de 50.000 lei.

New Book: Democratic Transition in Croatia

Democratic Transition in Croatia

Value Transformation, Education, and Media

Edited by Sabrina P. Ramet and Davorka Mati

With the fall of communism and the breakup of Yugoslavia, the successor states have faced a historic challenge to create separate, modern democracies from the ashes of the former authoritarian state. Central to the Croatian experience has been the issue of nationalism and whether the Croatian state should be defined as a citizens' state (with members of all nationality groups treated as equal) or as a national state of the Croats (with a consequent privileging of Croatian culture and language, but also with a quota system for members of national minorities). Sabrina P. Ramet and Davorka Mati have gathered here a series of studies by important scholars to examine the development of Croatia in the aftermath of communism and the war that marred the transition.

Sixteen scholars of the region discuss the values and institutions central to Croatia's transformation from communism and toward liberal democracy. They discuss economic change, political parties, and the uses of history since 1989. To understand the patterns in Croatia, they examine how civic values have been expressed, reinforced, and sometimes challenged through religion, education, and the media. The implications of nationalism in its various manifestations are treated thematically in all the analyses.

This book is a companion volume to a similar study on Slovenia, edited by Sabrina P. Ramet and Danica Fink-Hafner and released in fall 2006. Together, these two works form an important case study in comparison and contrast between two countries in the same region going through the transition from communism to liberal democracy. Scholars and policy makers will find a wealth of material in these two volumes.

SABRINA P. RAMET is a professor of political science at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) in Trondheim, Norway, and a senior associate of the Centre for the Study of Civil War, PRIO, Oslo. She has served as visiting scholar
at the Center for Eurasian, Russian, and Eastern European Studies, Georgetown University. Holding a Ph.D. from UCLA, she is the author of many books and articles. DAVORKA MATI is head of the department of sociology at the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, University of Zagreb, Croatia. She was president of the Croatian Sociological Association. She received her Ph.D. in sociology from the University of Zagreb in 1998 and is the author of one book and many articles.

CfA: RESET Seminar 2007-9, Cultures of Memory and Emancipatory Polit

Open Society Institute - Higher Education Support Program Regional Seminar for Excellence in Teaching and centre for research, art and civic engagement "the city"

RESET Challenge Seminar 2007-2009:
Cultures of Memory and Emancipatory Politics:
Re-visioning the Past and Communality in the Yugoslav and Post-Yugoslav Spaces

CALL FOR APPLICATIONS

Higher Education Support Program of Open Society Institute (Budapest) and the Centre for Research, Art and Civic Engagement "The City", Bosnia and Herzegovina, are announcing a new Regional Challenge Seminar for Excellence in Teaching, inviting interested scholars and university educators from all fields of social sciences and humanities to take part in the programme.

The collaborative interdisciplinary international project entitled Cultures of Memory and Emancipatory Politics: Re-visioning the Past and Communality in the Yugoslav and Post-Yugoslav Spaces will be carried out by a team of prominent scholars from various disciplines and will involve junior university-based academics primarily from the former Yugoslav region. The aim is to support and advance their teaching and research abilities and professional development through a collaborative international effort that offers a host of opportunities for young scholars/academics.

Working languages of the seminar are both English and South Slavic languages (Bosnian/Serbian/ Croatian, Macedonian, Slovenian*). The duration of the project is currently planned for two years starting in Autumn 2007. During this period, we aim to conduct and accomplish a number of tasks pertaining to teaching and research advancement in the areas of concern, and conduct two autumn and two spring sessions to take place in the Former Yugoslav region. The first joint session is tentatively planned for late September 2007 in Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The project has a rhizome-like structure both in terms of its lines of research and the organization of participants. Brining together researchers working at the cross-roads of cultural and literary theory, political theory, sociology and anthropology, the first core session addresses common concerns and later divides into distinct interdisciplinary, yet connected, research pathways. These will undertake research towards themes like: the revision of cultural memory in the former Yugoslav region, the recasting of past and communality in post-Yugoslav space and potentials for emancipatory politics, and so forth. Both core sessions (total of two) as well as
specific pathways (and their specific sessions and other activities) will ensure a concrete, flexible, and deliverable manner of devising, developing, and testing teaching and research methodologies that can be applied in junior faculty's research projects and teaching. The rhizome-like organization of the participants ensures their greater mobility and mutual exchange, encourages their independence and creativity, and sets in motion potential team-work both in teaching and researching
after the completion of the project.

For more details on the programme structure and the productive challenges it offers, please CONSULT two separate documents containing information sheet and programme outline. (Please note that many programme specifics will be revised and developed later by all the participants in order to respond to their interests and concerns to the fullest).

APPLICANTS

The project is aimed at young faculty primarily from former Yugoslav universities who are interested in developing their research and teaching skills in a challenging and collegial context. The applicants must be at an early stage of their teaching academic career, with a strong MA degree and publishing record, and preferably holding a PhD degree or enrolled in a doctoral programme.

Project Description
(approx. 100 words) The project has a rhizome-like structure both in terms
of its lines of research and the organization of participants. Brining
together researchers working at the cross-roads of cultural and literary
theory, political theory, sociology and anthropology, the first core
session addresses common concerns and later divides into distinct
interdisciplinary, yet connected, research pathways. These will undertake
research towards themes like: the revision of cultural memory in the former
Yugoslav region, the recasting of past and communality in post-Yugoslav
space and potentials for emancipatory politics, and so forth. Both core
sessions (total of two) as well as specific pathways (and their specific
sessions and other activities) will ensure a concrete, flexible, and
deliverable manner of devising, developing, and testing teaching and
research methodologies that can be applied in junior faculty's research
projects and teaching. The rhizome-like organization of the participants
ensures their greater mobility and mutual exchange, encourages their
independence and creativity, and sets in motion potential team-work both in
teaching and researching after the completion of the project.

Participants Eligibility
Disciplines Cultural studies, political theory, gender studies,
anthropology, literature, sociology (as well as other disciplines in
humanities and in social sciences)
Region/countries Post-Yugoslav countries
Academic standing/level/ prerequisites MA and PhD degree holders involved in
teaching and research of target disciplines in the regional faculties and
research centres
Other criteria A good knowledge of English language, working knowledge of
the basic concepts used in the discipline/s and at an early stage of their
teaching/research career

Deadline for applications 20 July 2007

Concurs de film in cadrul International Romani Art Festival

“Pentru ca arta de a fi convingator incepe prin a-ti deschide mintea si urechile, nu gura”, noi ne-am decis sa vorbim prin puterea exemplului. Sa gandim vechiul, traditia, cu o minte noua.

Concurs de film in cadrul International Romani Art Festival

Asociatia culturala TURN va anunta organizarea unui concurs de film in cadrul primei editii a International Romani Art Festival, festival care se va desfasura in perioada 31 august-6 septembrie 2007, in Timisoara.

Tema concursului este So Keres Europa? si se asteapta lucrari de scurt- metraj artistic si documentar din partea tuturor celor care sunt interesati de cultura roma. Prin acest concurs se doreste oferirea unei noi perspective asupra traditiilor si modului de viata al romilor.

Aceasta manifestare ridica un semnal vis-a-vis de rolul implicarii fiecarui cetatean european in promovarea diversitatii culturale si luptei impotriva discriminarii si ofera posibilitatea de interactiune, de cunoastere a celuilalt, de remarcare, de a intra in contact cu ale culturi si conceptii.

Concursul va avea 3 premii in valoare de 1000 euro fiecare: unul pentru fiecare sectiune, oferite de un juriu de profesionisti si un premiu al publicului. In vederea atribuirii celui din urma, scurt-metrajele vor putea fi vizionate in luna august si in timpul festivalului , in cluburile timisorene: Jazz Club, Papillon Cafe si Aeternativ Cafe, iar voturile spectatorilor vor fi transmise Asociatiei TURN. Materialele nu trebuie sa aiba o durata mai mare de 15 minute . Pentru suport tehnic va rugam sa folositi adresa de e-mail filmcontest@iraf.ro. Data limita a concursului este 15 august 2007. Lucrarile se trimit prin posta pe adresa Gospodarilor nr 14, Timisoara, Romania cod postal 300778 alaturi de o fisa a fiecarui film cu care se inscriu in concurs, care sa contina informatii importante
precum numele tuturor membrilor echipei de realizatori, unde si cand a fost filmat materialul, premii la festivaluri sau alte distinctii. Fiecare participant are dreptul de a trimite unul sau mai multe filme la oricare dintre sectiunile scurt-metraj documentar si scurt-metraj artistic.

Lucrarile vor fi supuse aprecierii unui juriu format din personalitati ale cinematografiei , precum si a unor oameni de cultura care in decursul timpului si-au dovedit interesul si competenta in acest domeniu, precum Cristi Puiu, Florin Iepan, Mircea Toma, Ciprian Necula , Lucian Ionica, Adrian Voichitescu, Diana Ureche, Delia
Grigore,Ovidiu Mihaita, Iulia Ciucur, Margareta Matache, Mona Nicoara, Miruna Coca-Cozma .

De asemenea pe parcursul festivalui, Asociatia Culturala TURN ofera sansa publicului larg de a viziona filme de lung metraj documentare sau artistice pe tema discriminarii si a artei si culturii rome . Pentru aceasta, organizatorii intentioneaza sa dedice un moment celor interesati sa-si prezinte propriile materialele spectatorilor. Filmele vor fi trimise pe adresa Gospodarilor nr 14, Timisoara, Romania cod postal 300778, alaturi de o scurta prezentare a membrilor
echipei de realizatori, unde si cand a fost filmat materialul, premii la festivaluri sau alte distinctii.

CfP: Contributions for interdisciplinary volume on gender and queer

Dear All,

my name is Silvia Antosa and I teach English literature at the University of Palermo. I am currently editing the second volume of a series of interdisciplinary studies on gender and queer studies entitled Omosapiens (info on the first one:
http://www.carocci. it/carocci/ servlet/LoadPage Net?page= 32&init=sec& act=scheda& cod=3756).

Part of the volume is devoted to the state of the art of gender and queer studies in Eastern Europe. I have already contacted scholars from Poland and Russia who will provide a brief essay in which they trace a history of gay/lesbian and queer studies in their own country and then furnish a bibliography which may be useful to Italian readers (the volume is in Italian) who wish to delve into the subject.

I would like to ask you or someone who would be pleased to take part in this project, if you could take part in this project with a short article (about 4-5 pages) in which he/she traces a short history of queer studies in the Balkan area.

Thank you very much for your kind attention.

Looking forward to hearing from you soon,

best wishes
