SHAKSPEReans:
 
In his biography, Ken Steele mentions that he has been "a brief or
long-term member of ENGLISH, LITERARY, WORDS-L, REED-L, GUTNBERG,
TEI-L, SFLOVERS, and most of all, HUMANIST."  I too am a member of
HUMANIST and GUTNBERG as well as PMC-LIST and PMC-TALK.
 
I am interested in finding out about those lists of which I am not a
member at present.  So, Ken, would you tell me about ENGLISH,
LITERARY, WORDS-L, REED-L, TEI-L, and SFLOVERS?  Also, are there other
lists that others of you belong to?
 
For my part, let me give some information about PMC-LIST and PMC-TALK.
PMC-LIST, *Post Modern Culture Journal*, is a juried, electronic
journal, that will publish its first issue this fall.  PMC-TALK,
Postmodern Culture Journal Discussion List, is an open and unedited
discussion group that was set up to run alongside the edited journal.
Inquiries about PMC-LIST can be made to the Journal Editor, John
Unsworth at PMC@NCSUVM. If you would like to subscribe to PMC-TALK,
you may do so by following these directions posted by the editors:
 
>send an e-mail letter to LISTSERV@NCSUVM (or, if you are on the

>Internet, to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ) containing the following one-
>line command:
  > subscribe pmc-talk [your first and last name]
  >Do NOT send your request to the list itself (i.e., do not send
>your request to pmc-talk@ncsuvm; if you do, it will be
>distributed as mail to all the list's subscribers). If for some
>reason this does not seem to work, send mail with your request to
>the journal's address, pmc@ncsuvm (or, on the Internet,

  P.S. I also communicate remotely with academic libraries; this is an area that we may wish to explore on SHAKSPER at a later date.             Hardy M.

You need JavaScript enabled to view it > Subject: Bitnet Discussion Groups     There are literally *thousands* of Bitnet discussion groups accessible like SHAKSPER. A complete listing (which will take a few hours to read through) can be obtained by sending the "list global" command to Listserv@utoronto, either as a mail or interactive message. These groups include various scientific specialties, computer user groups, WordPerfect and NotaBene groups, philosophy, history, and much more. Some of the more relevant lists of which I am aware include these:     HUMANIST@Brownvm - A moderated discussion group for humanities computing                      Contact the EDITORS@Brownvm for further information.   ENGLISH@Utarlvm1 - An unmoderated and rather quiet group for teachers                      and students of English literature.   LITERARY@Ucf1vm - An unmoderated and rather active, though casual,                      discussion group, primarily for contemporary                      literature (it would seem).   TEI-L@UICVM - A discussion of the Text Encoding Initiative.   REED-L - The Records of Early English Drama list --                      also here at Toronto. A topic which should be                      generating more discussion than it is. Unmoderated.   WORDS-L@YALEVM - Dedicated to the English Language, but essentially                      a very active group discussing linguistic trivia                      (a great many queries are asked which a quick check                      of the OED could answer, unfortunately).   ANSAX-L@WVNVM - An Anglo-Saxonist discussion group.   SFLOVERS@Rutvm1 - A Science Fiction literature/media discussion group.                      Unmoderated.   C18-L@PSUVM - An interdisciplinary discussion of the eighteenth-                      century, predominantly literary. Unmoderated.   NEW-LIST@Ndsuvm1 - A list dedicated to announcements of new lists.   FWAKE-L@IRLEARN - A list dedicated solely to discussion of Joyce's                      *Finnegan's Wake*   MORRIS@SUVM - A list dedicated to Morris Dancing.     These lists vary greatly in quality; some I would recommend, others I have abandoned in despair. A number may grow to be more effective as time goes on. The only true evaluation is to subscribe and see. In each case, send the command "SUB listname John H. Doe" to the listserv at the node indicated, and you will either be automatically added to the list or given further information.                                     Ken Steele                                   Editor, SHAKSPER                                   University of Toronto                                     < This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
