In Brief..

Lahey Lecture tonight

This year's Lahey Lecture in Literature will be given by Jonathan Goldberg, a distinguished Renaissance scholar from Johns Hopkins University, on the theme of Afro-Caribbean readings, rewritings and appropriations of Shakespeare's The Tempest and the character of Caliban.

He will deliver "The Generation of Caliban" tonight at 8:30 p.m. in Room 407 of the Henry F. Hall Building.

HIV/AIDS lecture

The first speaker in the HIV/AIDS community lecture series will be Dr. Rommel Mendès-Leite, a Brazilian sociologist and activist currently based in Paris.

His talk, which will be in French, is titled Bisexualité. Repenser la prévention. It will be given on Thursday, October 22, in the Alumni Auditorium (H-110) of the Henry F. Hall Building, starting at 6 p.m.

Grad diplomas top up a BA

Information sessions will be held October 8 and October 22 for two graduate diplomas offered by the Faculty of Commerce and Administration.

The Diploma in Sport Administration and the Diploma in Administration are open to applicants who already have an undergraduate degree. Both programs have recently been revised.

The sessions will be held at 6 p.m. in Room 403-2 of the Guy Metro Building, 1550 de Maisonneuve Blvd. W. To reserve a place, call 848-2718, or contact

Peace educator

Francelia Butler, of the University of Connecticut, recently died in Storrs, Conn. Dr. Butler often visited Concordia to lecture about her academic speciality, children's literature, and the concept of peace games, which she developed.

In case of emergency

The public pay telephones on both campuses have been reprogrammed to allow users to call Campus Security at no charge. The numbers are 848-3717 for the SGW campus and 848-3707 for the Loyola campus. They are displayed on the telephone digital screen before you pick up the receiver.

This innovation is thanks to Concordia Security and Telesis.
