Study: Subsidies Change Incentives for Adoption of Foster Children

The structure of a federal program that provides monthly subsidies to promote the adoptions of special needs children in foster care may actually be delaying some adoptions, according to a new study by University of Notre Dame economist Kasey Buckles.

 

Forthcoming in The Journal of Human Resources, Buckles’ study shows that the number of adoptions increases when children become eligible for an adoption subsidy, and most of the increase is from adoptions by foster parents. However, the age of subsidy eligibility for children varies by state since states can choose how they define a special needs child. As a result, children in some states become subsidy eligible at age 2, while others are not eligible until age 12. Click here for more information.

Land Economics article awarded History of Economics Prize

We are pleased to announce that Spencer Banzhaf has won the Best Article in the History of Economics Prize for 2009, presented by the History of Economics Society, for his article "Objective or Multi-Objective? Two Historically Competing Visions for Benefit-Cost Analysis," (Land Economics, 85:1, p. 3-23, http://le.uwpress.org/cgi/content/abstract/85/1/3) David Levy, chair of the Best Article Committee at the History of Economics Society, had this to say:

For the past 15 years, the History of Economics Society has awarded a prize for the best article published in the previous year. This year there were over two dozen articles nominated. The committee selected Spencer Banzhaf's paper on benefit-cost analysis. One member, who described the paper as "fascinating," wrote a brief summary that nicely catches the contribution: "Banzhaf [studies how] the benefit-cost instrument was itself the object of debate; and the outcome of that debate is cast as a reflection of the fundamental differences in perceptions regarding the capacity of political institutions to reach socially optimal decisions regarding competing policy goals."

Landscape Journal announces new editorial team.

At the annual meeting of the Council of Educators in Landscape Architecture (CELA), the executive council named David Pitt and Lance Neckar, professors in the Department of Landscape Architecture at the University of Minnesota, as co-editors of Landscape Journal. The Minnesota team outlined an approach which expands the paths to authorship for the faculty of the future. In addition, a moderated blog, genius loci, will be developed which will promote expanded discourse across academic and professional territories and countries, offer enlarged opportunities for critical exchange, networking and mentorship, and expand the capacity for the publication of imagery, especially in color. The best-of-the-best submissions to genius loci will find their way to more developed manuscripts. These will, in turn, be presented in moderated sessions on emerging and focused issues at CELA meetings, into peer review, and then into the pages of the Journal.

 

The editorial team also includes Vince deBritto, managing editor and editor of genius loci, and Sara Grothe, editorial assistant.

Sponsored by the Council of Educators in Landscape Architecture, Landscape Journal disseminates emerging scholarship relevant to academics and practitioners.

 

With contributions from practitioners and academics from both inside and outside landscape architecture, the Spring issue of the anniversary volume (26:1) highlights “Race, Space & the Destabilization of Practice” in landscape architecture.... The Fall issue (26:2) features a smaller theme group on “Modern Manifestos” in landscape architecture, along with an eclectic set of articles on topics ranging from the sacred groves of Greece, to modern lifestyle centers, and a Civil-War themed subdivision in suburban Ohio. This characteristic mixture of themes and topics is crucial to maintaining the liberal value of Landscape Journal to the field of landscape architecture.

 

Over the course of its twenty-five year history, prized special issues on Nature, Form and Meaning (1988), Landscape and the Avant-Garde (1991), Women, Land and Design (1994), and Eco-Revelatory Landscapes (1998), have recently been joined by special issues on Cross-Cultural Education (2005) and Metropolitan Ecology (Spring 2008), to mirror an evolving sense of mission in the field.

Monatshefte Celebrates 100th Volume

The editorial staff and the publisher of Monatshefte, celebrated the publication of its 100th volume on Friday, April 4th, 2008.

 

Founded in 1899, Monatshefte is the longest-published journal devoted to the study of German literature and culture in the United States . It is recognized by leaders in the field as one of the premier publications of German scholarship, and the premier journal for German literary criticism in the U.S. Since its inception, it has shaped the concerns and debates of German Studies within the U.S. The journal has been produced by the Department of German at UW Madison since the 1920's, and has been published by UW Press since 1964 when the Journals Division was added.

 

Monatshefte is published 4 times per year, with each winter issue featuring “Personalia,” a listing of college and university German Department personnel from across the U.S. and Canada , special surveys, and articles regarding the professional concerns of college and university German instructors.

 

Since January 2008, Monatshefte is available online. And beginning in 2008, the complete digital archive of the journal from the very first issue will be included in JSTOR, a provider of online archives of important scholarly journals. It is also available through Project Muse.
