Baby Sitting Service At Yale University

In November 2002 the Women Faculty Forum submitted a proposal for the development of a Babysitting Service at Yale. The proposal called for a link between Yale student sitters and Yale parents. Since many child care programs are not open during non-traditional working hours, parents often need the services of a babysitter during those times. Providing fairly inexpensive services like this has proven to be a great faculty and staff  retention tool, as well as a philosophically sound practice for organizations and the communities and families that rely on them.  To that end, the WorkLife Program and the Women Faculty Forum have developed a new web-based Babysitting Service.  With the joint efforts and vision of Amanda Geraghty from the WorkLife Program, and Rachel Thomas and Carla Eastis from the Women Faculty Forum, the new Babysitting Service web site is now live!  We will formally announce the service in early February, but I would ask that you take a look through it and send me any feedback about the site. The service can only be used by members of the Yale community with a Net ID and the babysitters must be current Yale students. Non-Yale parents will be directed to the Yale Student Employment Office.  Please click here to access the new site:  www.yale.edu/babysitting

                                              A Summer of Research in France
For the third year the Columbia Summer Field School in Medieval Architecture will be conducted in the château  of Bostz in the Bourbonnais in the heart of France to the west of Burgundy and north of the Auvergne.   With readings, evening lectures and seminars, some of them given by visitors, students were provided an introduction to medieval architecture and some of the problems associated with its study.  Past participants have traveled to a site of major importance each week such Tournus, Nevers, Autun, Clermont-Ferrand, and Bourges. The principal objective is an intense study of local Romanesque architecture: we hope in a five year program to include around two
hundred churches.  This is an area that flourished in the eleventh and twelfth centuries with the increasingly efficient exploitation of the land and the development of new towns. The students study and survey the churches working in teams where each undertakes a special task in order to create an accurate groundplan and transverse section in Vectorworks. Our program is intended to provide students the opportunity to
engage in an intense study of medieval architecture in the field.  Students
learn to use their eyes; intelligence and memory; their ability to
visualize and narrate. Columbia University Summer Field School in Medieval Architecture in
France

Summer Fellowships in the Big Apple

You are invited to apply for a fellowship to the 21st Annual Research Colloquium. Spend the month of July in New York working on a research or writing project of your choice with access to libraries and research facilities at Columbia University, Union, Auburn and Jewish Theological Seminaries. At a time when religion appears to be at the heart of humanity's gravest conflicts, it is clear that an increased understanding of how religion affects our lives is not an option: it is a necessity for survival. Since 1983, we have sponsored the colloquium because we want to have an impact not only on how religion is taught and studied, but also on the way it influences events that touch us all.  To that end we invite applications for a fellowship that will allow you to spend a month at our expense in a collaborative learning community, diverse in race, age, gender, religion and intellectual discipline working on a research or writing project of your choice. The successful applicant will have a capacity for integrating personal faith with the life of the
mind, and will outline a project that will be of interest to those outside his or her area of academic specialization or religious tradition.  In addition to research and writing projects, we also encourage projects that incorporate the creative arts.  For the lastest colloquium information visit:
