“Judith Lynne Hanna Collection” (“African Dances: 1963” motion picture film, audio tapes, 35 mm slides and related publications are now Archived at American Folklife Center, Library of Congress, Washington, D.C., USA). The collection includes about 4,450 feet of 16 mm motion picture film from Nigeria, Uganda, Kenya, and Ethiopia that the American Folklife Center has digitalized. Because of the limitations of the Bell and Howell 70 DR camera equipment used, the music was recorded separately on quarter inch 7 1/2 half-track audiotape. A Wenner-Gren Foundation for Anthropological Research Historical Archives Grant helped to preserve the original material. Contact: 202-707-1739.

'"Semiotic Profiles'" in Semiotix are “articles which offer accounts of personalities who have made a signal contribution to the development of semiotics and continue to be productive,” says the editor Professor Paul Bouissac. “These reports are conceived not as personal celebrations (sorts of ante-mortem obituaries!) but as resources for younger researchers in the various fields which are involved. This is why we also publish complete bibliographies of the scholars who are the objects of these profiles. We send the bulletin to approximately 6,000 international correspondents and it remains posted online indefinitely.” See for the profile of Judith Lynne Hanna.
