Qs: Participants in James Sledd/NEH Funded Seminars

Editor for this issue: Danielle St. Jean <daniellelinguistlist.org>

We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.

In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.cfm.

I am writing a book about the National Endowment for the Humanities
(NEH) funded grants for writing from 1973 - 1987. The project
combines archival materials with interviews of faculty who were
involved in NEH funded projects during those 14 years.

I am in search of faculty who were participants in any of James Sledd's
NEH funded projects at University of Texas, Austin:

Standard English: Social Control and Individual Freedom
1978 - 1979

Varieties of English as a World Language: Uses and Values

Standard English: Social Control and Individual Freedom

Linguistics, Literacy, and the Politics of Education:
Selected Instances, 1960-1980, 1981

If you were a participant, or know someone who was, would you please
contact me: gellerastjohns.edu or anne.gellergmail.com

Also, if there is any chance you were a participant in any other "rhetoric
and composition" or "writing across the curriculum" grant funded by the
NEH in those years, I'd also be happy to hear from you.

Thanks very much!
