Announcement: Graduate Students in Syriac Studies

We are pleased to announce the beginning of a new international group of students of Syriac Studies: Dorushe. This is intended to be a means for students at different universities in different parts of the world to have a way of coming into contact with other students of Syriac Studies. Graduate studies can be a trying time, especially when one may be one of only a few at a given institution working in the field. It is our hope that this group could establish a network for students to help and support each other. In the future, perhaps we could also work on projects together, or even plan student trips to visit places of interest or import to our studies. There will be an initial planning meeting at the North American Patristics Society meeting, on Saturday May 29, 2004 at 3:30 in Crown 434. Professors are invited to share this message with their students. We will begin a list serve to get into contact with each other. People with questions or suggestions can contact Jeanne-Nicole Saint-Laurent at . We are excited for the possibilities that this could bring and hope you will share our enthusiasm!

From the Hugoye list.
