Bill Hammer's latest manuscript titled: A tritylodont postcanine from the Hanson Formation of Antarctica has just been published in the Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology, V. 28, no. 1, March 2008.

"Studying Arguments," by Ellen Hay, was published in the April issue of the Review of Communication. The article considers Vaughn's The Power of Critical Thinking for use in first year and debate/argumentation courses.

Adam Kaul has been issued a contract from Oxford-based Berghahn Books for his book manuscript Turn of the Tune: Tourism, Traditional Music, and Social Change in an Irish Village. Based on fourteen months of intensive ethnographic fieldwork between 2002 and 2003, the book is an ethnographic account of a heavily touristed village called Doolin in the west of Ireland. The book’s broad approach reveals the myriad ways in which tourism, tradition and social change impact one particular locale and the social relations that occur there, and in doing so, problemetizes the too often simplified opposition between global flows and local places.
