Museum's E-Musings

The University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology has started its own, free electronic newsletter. To sign up for UPM's E-Musings visit the Museum's homepage at . Each tree-loving "issue" will be filled with information about Museum special events, exhibitions, new publications, shop specials and ground-breaking research in archaeology and anthropology.

Curators Cornered, a mini-featurette, puts Museum curators and researchers in the "hot seat," as they consider contemporary issues and concerns--from the modern Olympics to our yearly Tax Time Angst--from a distinctively anthropological perspective.

The Director's Forum is an opportunity for e-newsletter subscribers to give the Museum Director, and the Museum staff, direct input on a variety of museum issues.

"In today's fast-changing world, we believe that the anthropological perspective, and a commitment to open-ended learning about cultural diversity and complexity, is more vital than ever before," noted Dr. Jeremy A. Sabloff, the Museum's Charles Williams Director. "The Museum is committed to reaching, and communicating with, a worldwide community of scholars, students and the public, and we see E-Musings as an important new step in that ongoing dialog.

"We invite Penn's richly diverse community to sign up for E-Musings--and join us in our mission, and our adventure!"
