Editor for this issue: Bethany Townsend
The LINGUIST List strongly encourages employers to use
non-discriminatory standards in hiring policy. In particular we urge
that employers do not discriminate on the grounds of race, ethnicity,
nationality, age, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. However, we
have no means of enforcing these standards.
Job seekers should pay special attention to language in ads regarding
employment requirements and are encouraged to consult our international
employment page at http://linguistlist.org/jobs/jobnet.html. This page has been
set up so that people can report on the employment standards of various countries.

Expected Future Work
An independent research contribution to the thematic emphasis "Latin
spatial expressions and concepts in a diachronic perspective." Active
interest in interdisciplinary collaboration within the Research Groups
"Languages" and "Images" and in collaboration in interdisciplinary
colloquia of the Excellence Cluster TOPOI. The research project "Latin
spatial expressions and concepts in a diachronic perspective" will focus on
an analysis of significant morphological, syntactic, and semantic phenomena
of the linguistic coding of spatial relations and dimensions in the Latin
language. The study of suitable partial bodies of Early Latin, Classical
Latin, and Late Latin literature is imaginable, as is a contrasting
analysis of the Latin and selected Romance languages with a focus on Latin.
In regard to the interdisciplinary investigation of culturally-specific
spatial concepts and cognitions, the project should offer perspectives for
comparative linguistic and diachronic questions. Thus, within the Research
Group "Languages" of Research Area C ("Perception and Representation"),
various ancient languages (for example, Ancient Egyptian, Coptic, Sumerian,
Akkadian, Hittite, Hurrite, Ancient Greek, etc.) will be examined for their
spatial expressions. The project will also engage in direct exchange with
an image-science research project on two- and three-dimensional depictions
of space in Graeco-Roman culture within the Research Group "Images."
