Subject: [Locating Academic Discussion Groups]
I wonder if anyone could help me. I'm going to be teaching Intro to Research
to our graduate students in the fall, and I decided that, as one of their
weekly assignments, I would like to have them monitor an Internet discussion
group devoted to a particular author or period and report back on the types of
issues that arise and the ways in which the discourse is conducted. However,
I've been having trouble identifying how my students might determine the
existence of such lists and go about subscribing to them. I found out about
SHAKSPER by talking to Ken Steele directly, but I imagine that there must be
somewhere, either in print or on line, a resource that would give the addresses
of discussion groups devoted to literature. Does anyone have any idea where I
might go for this information?
