Subject: SHAKSPER Roundtable Procedures
My next mailing to the list will be the opening offering in the first of
the SHAKSPER Roundtable discussions.
When I asked for feedback, members overwhelmingly expressed a preference
for the designation Roundtable to identify this new feature.
Two weeks ago, I distributed a Reading List suggested by our Guest
Moderator Hugh Grady. I realize that some of had difficulty in securing
all of the readings, and I include myself among the members of this
group. I hope in the future this aspect of the Roundtable discussions
will run more smoothly.
By now, those of us who are interested in participating have read some
if not most of the selections from the Reading List.
Next, I will post a statement by Hugh Grady that is intended to
stimulate discussion on the topic "Presentism Now."
Using the REPLY key or in a message clearly identified as belonging to
this Roundtable discussion, participating members should respond or comment.
I will gather these replies and forward them to Professor Grady. He will
read them, looking for common strains. By next weekend, he will send to
me a brief summary of the week's discussions with his responses and
comments. I will organize and format all of these into a single extended
DIGEST that I will subsequently distribute to the list on the following
Tuesday, when the cycle will begin anew.
We are charting new territory here, and I welcome private observations
about procedure and so on.
So let's begin.
