Joe,
Sheffield have decided not to take on any lists not run by their
faculty
just now (sounds familiar...)
I do think you should approach St Johns. Bobb Zenhausern is keen to
grow
and is helpful. I'll tell him about you, but you should write also. I
gave
you the address in my last posting. Let me know. Best, Bob Young

Joe,
I received your post yesterday about the necessity of finding a new home
for
the litsci-l list and have contacted the chair of the English department
here
at West Virginia University about the possibility of it being moved
here.  Our
College of Arts & Sciences recently purchased a Sparc 20, rather
appropriately
named Hermes :), which is being used as the server for the various
departments
contained within the college.  I am sure that this machine would be able
to
handle the list as long as there is no opposition to its being there.
(Although I can't imagine there being much since the chair of our
department,
Pat Conner,  is thoroughly engrossed with humanities computing).  I will
let
you know as soon as I get a response from Pat (he's off Wednesdays).
Please let me know if you think this is a viable option.
--Wayne

sufficient reason to believe in the value of having such a space,
regardless how irregular traffic has been around here...
wayne miller at ucla has graciously volunteered to set up a new list for

NEW EMAIL FORUM: SCIENCE-AS-CULTURE
For discussion of cultural aspects of science, technology, medicine and
other forms of expertise (including the internet)
Science as Culture is an unmoderated forum for critical discussion of
the
cultural aspects of all forms of expertise, for example, the impact of
science on culture, how culture represents it, the culture of various
forms
of expertise, the theory of knowledge, the impact of science on
culture,
including film, video, music, writing, the internet and other
communications media, etc.; changing concepts of nature, life and human
nature, new technologies, gender aspects of science, racism, elitism,
educational theories, you name it.
Announcements of conferences, publications, jobs, issues in the
relevant
fields are also welcome.
Science as Culture is affiiliated with the hard copy journal of the
same
name published by Process Press Ltd.
(http://www.shef.ac.uk/uni/projects/gpp/process.html)
and (US & Canada) Guilford Publications Inc. (info@guilford.com). A
list of
back issues is at: http://rdz.stjohns.edu/gp/process.html
A web site associated with the forum will hold articles from back
issues,
as well as submissions under consideration (not obligatory), whose
authors
may benefit from constructive comments for purposes of revisions before
the
hard copy is printed, as well as longer piece not suitable for the
email
format which forum members may wish to discuss.
The core constituency may be people concerned with cultural, social,
hoistorical and philosophical studies of science, technology and
medicine,
but all are welcome. Accessibility of expertise to critical scrutiny is
a
large part of the point.

MEPHISTOS was created for and designed by graduate students in order to
provide a forum for fostering communication between grad students at
different universities, and to offer a chance for lively interchange
between those involved in the fields of Science Studies, broadly
defined.
In particular, the conference offers a stress-free environment in which
to
present research and discuss topics and trends in the field.  We
strongly
encourage students working in other non-HPS departments whose work
touches
on areas in science studies to come and present their work in this
context.
Since we want to make this event ACCESSIBLE to graduate students on
limited budgets, we will provide as many people as possible with FREE
lodging on the couches, etc., of area graduate students.  This limited
space is on a first-come, first-served basis, with those giving papers
receiving priority.  There are some inexpensive rooms reserved in
graduate housing (~$30 a night) and we will offer a list of area
lodging
upon request.  Travel information is also available upon request, and
we
will also attempt to provide coordinated carpool contacts to those
driving
along the same route, if registrations are received early enough.
1    Funds permitting, travel subsidies which may become available will
be
issued on the basis of the order in which we receive your registration
fee.

Subject:      CFV for SCI.PHILOSOPHY.NATURAL Moderated
The first call for votes (CFV) for the moderated group
sci.philosophy.natural has been posted in news.groups.
HOW TO VOTE
Just call up the CFV in news.groups, delete everything but the
ballot, type your name and your vote, and forward it to the
votetaker.
Votes must be received by 23:59:59 UTC, 12 Dec 1995.
This vote is being conducted by a neutral third party.  Questions
about
the proposed group should be directed to the proponent.
Proponent: Will Wagers 
Mentor:  Mark James 
Votetaker: David Bostwick

RATIONALE: sci.philosophy.natural
sci.philosophy.natural will meet a long-standing demand for a moderated
newsgroup for the scholarly discussion of and publications on ancient
natural philosophy (science) without flames and without unfounded
'speculative' postings. The proposed newsgroup would not replace any
existing groups. There is a small overlap with *many* existing
newsgroups
and mailing lists in that subjects appropriate to
sci.philosophy.natural
are occasionally discussed there. One purpose of sci.philosophy.natural
is
to bring these discussions under one roof to facilitate
interdisciplinary
scholarship. In some cases, this may result in offloading some traffic
from
high volume newsgroups and mailing lists. It would still leave any and
all
posters the forums that currently exist, so there is no question of
denying
anyone an outlet for their ideas. The small number of newsgroups and
mailing lists which regularly deal with topics appropriate to
sci.philosophy.natural may regard the proposed newsgroup as a means of
publishing finished articles after the rounds of specialist comment and
criticism have occurred.
Thanks for your participation. This notice has been cross-posted. My
apologies
if you encounter it on more than one list.
Wishing you all had a great Thanksgiving !
(wish void where impolitic, inopportune, or otherwise inadvisable)

CALL FOR PAPERS
---------------
Now inviting submissions for
HENRY STREET  vol. 5.2
A Graduate Review of Literary Studies
_Henry Street_, formerly known as _Critical Mass_, is in its fifth
year.
We aim to provide an international forum for graduate students of
English
and related disciplines.  The editors, themselves graduate students,
are
committed to providing their colleagues with the opportunity to publish
their own work and to read their work of others in their field.
_Henry Street_ invites contributions of critical essays, short fiction
and
poetry from graduate students in English or a related discipline.  We
also
welcome essays on pedagogy, the job market, graduate programs, and
other
topics of interest to graduate students.  We aim especially to publish
and
promote a species of criticism that, in the words of one of our
contributors, "combines the personal with the scholarly."
_Henry Street_ is indexed by the MLA.
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Issue 5.1 of _Henry Street_ contains:
* Lisa Garmire (UCLA-Santa Barbara), "Borrowing Time from
AIDS," with a
"Selected Annotated Bibliography of American AIDS Novels"
* Roy Sexton (Ohio State U), "'Steven Doesn't Understand No':
Masculinity
and Escapism in the Films of Steven Spielberg"
* Bonnie Surfus (U of Southern Florida), "Strange Attractors in
Pynchon's
_Vineland_"
* Nate Dorward (Dalhousie), "Milton's 'Heroic Verse Without
Rime'"
Fiction by Jason Hamilton... and more.
--------------------------------------------------------------------
SUBMISSIONS
Essays should not exceed 7000 words, and must follow MLA guidelines for
citation and presentation.  All submissions, except poetry, should be
double-spaced on standard 8.5" x 11" bond.  To facilitate our
process of
anonymous reading, the author's name should not appear on the
manuscript.
Send two copies of submissions, and include a self-addressed return
envelope accompanied either by Canadian stamps or international reply
coupons.  Manuscripts submitted without SASE cannot be returned.  The
cover
letter must indicate the author's degree status and university
affiliation.
Send your submission to:
_Henry Street_
Department of English
Dalhousie University
Halifax, Nova Scotia
Canada
B3H 3J5
You can also send e-mail inquiries to Henry.Street@DAL.CA.  Please note
that this address is for inquiries only, not submissions.
*** We welcome submissions at any time, but the deadline for our next
*** issue is January 15, 1996.
