 Circular 10.1 Octubre 2008


Quiero recordar a quienes vayan a participar en el XVIII Congreso de la AILCFH en Agnes College que no dejéis de asistir a la asamblea general de la Asociación que tendrá lugar el sábado 18 de octubre a las 12:30 durante el almuerzo. Durante la Asamble se discutirán las mociones presentadas por el ejecutivo para ser ratificadas por la Asamble. Adjunto a este mesaje puede encontrat un documento en pdf con los informes individuales del ejecutivo y el texto de las mociones.

En la anterior Circular envié un documento con las normas de colaboración de la enciclopedia de escritoras latinoamericanas, pero al parecer llegó en blanco. Ya que se trata de un documento bien extenso, lo he incluido en la sección de COLABORACIONES de Grafemas para que las personas interesadas lo puedan consultar allí.

Grafemas ahora tiene una sección de PUESTOS DE TRABAJO en ANUNCIOS.

Un saludo,
