Subject:        Romantics list
 
There is indeed one -- NASSR -- North American Society for the Study of
Romanticism.  It is on English Romanticism.  I do not know about French lit of
the c19 or on Baudelaire.
 
The address is:
 
    NASSR-L  For members of the North American Society for the Study
    of  ROmanticism.  Scholarly discussions of Romantic literature.

    listserv@wvnvm                      -- BITnet address
 
If those don't work, send to
 
    dcstewa@wvnvm.bitnet (David C. Stewart)
 
Since the description doesn't specifically say that it is only about English
Romanticism, I could be mistaken.  Certainly it seems as if all Romantic
literature could be discussed.  (I hope so.)
 
If you are interested in more addresses, I recommend Eric Braun's _Internet
Directory_; it seems to me to be the most complete bibliographic sourse on Net
discussion lists.  I got mine at Waldenbooks for about $25 (whew!).
 
If you would like for me to look up any other addresses, please ask; I am glad
to do so for anyone.
 
    Cheers,
    Mary-Katie

Subject: 5.0076  Q: Romantic Lists
Comment:        Re: SHK 5.0076  Q: Romantic Lists
 
Kimberly Nolan, with a Miami e-mail address, asks:
 
> I have been bragging about the vast knowledge of the participants on
> SHAKSPER, so now one of my colleagues has asked me to put out a query.
> Does anyone know of a good list for the European Romantics or for
> 19th Century French literature?  Just how specific do most of these
> electronic conferences get?  Could she find a list just for Goethe, or
> Baudelaire?  Any help or suggestion will be appreciated.
 
While there is no special reason to assume that a list of Shakespearians
will know the answer(s) to such a query, there is *every* reason to assume
that someone in your own library's reference department *will* know it/them.
I heartily recommend that you seek out Nora Jane Quinlan at your library.
If she does not know how to answer this question herself, she will know
someone at Miami who does.  In any case, someone in that Department is
also likely to be willing to introduce you to a gopher and thus to a kind
of gateway to e-lists.
 
The only excuse for posting so specific a reply to the entire list, need I
add, is that, while the names of the resource people will obviously differ
at other institutions, there is almost invariably someone in *your*
library whose *business* it is to know how to answer just this sort of
question.  And they *are* resources whom it is occasionally worth meeting.
