Jane Geaney, associate professor of religious studies at the University of Richmond, recently received a $6,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities’ Summer Stipend Program. Geaney will use the grant to work on her book, “A Chinese Grammatology,” which documents and interprets the development of ideas about language in early China (c. 500 B.C.E. – 220 C.E.). Her research will show how non-alphabetic scripts can shape a culture’s ideas about the nature of language. Geaney has taught at Richmond since 1997. She holds a master’s degree and Ph.D. from the University of Chicago and a B.A. from the College of the Holy Cross.

‘Jingle All the Way 2’ is expectedly flawed
Was anyone asking for an extra-large helping of Larry the Cable Guy this Christmas? If so, you can thank Santa Claus for Jingle All the Way 2.
If not, you can be like the rest of us and curse Santa for his folly in creating such a film. Santa, we neither wanted nor needed this.
