Cal at the Old Globe

Berkeley's Shakespeare Program, directed by Hugh Richmond, professor emeritus of English, is closely aligned with the nearly completed rebuilding of Shakespeare's original Globe Theatre on the South Bank of the Thames in London.

Richmond's production of "Much Ado About Nothing" is scheduled for July 1996 at the Globe, making it one of the first plays to be performed on the new stage. The production will be filmed in preparation for a sequel to Richmond's previous documentary, "Shakespeare and the Globe."

After serving for several years as the chair of the American advisory council for the Globe project, Richmond recently was appointed director of the Globe's education division in the U.S. In this capacity he will arrange for American access to the theater and build a curriculum of courses and educational activites related to the Globe.

Positions Abroad

Monday, Oct. 16 is the deadline to submit applications for positions as Education Abroad Program study center directors.

Two-year resident positions (from July 1996 through June 1998) are available in France, Germany, Italy, Israel, Mexico, Spain and the UK. Shorter term positions are available in Japan, Hungary, Russia and Southeast Asia. The latter is a new EAP directorship, involving the oversight of small programs in several countries.

Eligible candidates include tenured or emeriti faculty, or lecturers with security of employment. In nearly all cases, fluency in the language of the host country is an important qualification.

EAP director duties include administering the study center, maintaining relations with partner universities, providing academic and general counselling for UC students enrolled there, and, in some cases, teaching courses.

For further information, call the campus EAP office, 642-1356, or systemwide at (805) 893-3677. Email:
