     H-RHETOR is moderated by Gary Hatch of Brigham Young
University (

 ).  Posts to the list are collected by
the moderator and distributed in digests daily.  Announcements of
interest and notes from the moderator may be sent as
singular messages.
 
MISSION
-------
     H-RHETOR is an international electronic discussion
group based at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC).
H-RHETOR will provide a forum for scholars and teachers of
the history of rhetoric, writing, and communication.  There are no
geographical or chronological boundaries.
 
    Subscription is free; subscribers will automatically receive
messages in their computer mailboxes.  Messages can be saved,
discarded, printed out, duplicated, or relayed to someone
else.  It's like a newsletter that is free and published
daily.
 
    The primary purpose of H-RHETOR is to enable historians
to communicate current research and research interests; to
discuss new articles, books, papers, approaches, methods and
tools of analysis; and to test new ideas and share comments and
tips on teaching. H-RHETOR will have an editor and an editorial
board.
 
    H-RHETOR will try to stimulate dialogues in the discipline
among historians of rhetoric worldwide.  It will publish
syllabi, outlines, handouts, bibliographies, guides to
termpapers, listings of new sources and archives, and reports
on new software, datasets and cd-roms.  Subscribers will write
in with questions, comments, and reports. H-RHETOR will post
announcements of conferences, fellowships, and jobs. We expect
many messages at first will be of the "how can I do this with
my computer?" variety and also "where can I locate
such-and-such?"  Please send them in, for someone on the list
will be able to help. H-RHETOR will publish paper abstracts,
conference reports, and book reviews, but it will not be an electronic
journal.
