Message 2: InterScripta: an On-line forum for medievalists

Date: Sun, 30 May 1993 20:31:00 InterScripta: an On-line forum for medievalists
From: W Schipper <schippermorgan.ucs.mun.ca>
Subject: InterScripta: an On-line forum for medievalists

The following announcement is being distributed to a large number of
lists. We apologize for the inconvenience such duplication will cause.

 INTERSCRIPTA- A Topical On-line Forum for Medievalists

 Existing discussion lists such as ANSAX-L, ChaucerNet, and
MEDTEXTL provide a valuable and exciting forum for sharing
information in our field. Rapid dissemination of data and
spontaneous exploration of topics are vital characteristics of
these lists, but those of us who subscribe to more than one list
often find that these characteristics are not always
advantageous; we receive more information than we can digest, and
we are sometimes frustrated by the repetition, randomness, and
lack of focus in topical discussions.

 Interscripta is being developed as an on-line discussion
group that will address these concerns. Rather than providing a
completely open forum for unbounded proliferation of ideas,
Interscripta will focus on discussion of a specified topic for a
designated period of time; the topic will change on a regular
basis. Each topic will be proposed and moderated by a scholar in
the field, and at the close of the discussion, the moderator will
shape the material into an article which will be distributed to
all participants for review and commentary before its final
revision. Finished articles will be published in the on-line
journal Interscripta.

 The developers of this project believe that Interscripta
will provide a forum for directing and focussing our electronic
discussions into organized bodies of material representative of
cutting edge work in our field. Our approach encourages
collaborative work, and our method of publication allows finished
articles to be made available without the lag time of traditional
journals. This project is not intended to displace existing
discussion lists; in fact, we encourage potential moderators to
scan the archives of medieval studies lists in search of topics
that deserve to be honed and polished for electronic publication.

 In the spirit of collaboration which is at the heart of this
project, the opening topic will be a discussion of the project
itself, its goals and future orientation. All those who wish to
participate in this formative discussion may subscribe to
Interscripta by sending the message:

"sub interscripta [your name]" to listservermorgan.ucs.mun.ca.

 or William Schipper (schippermorgan.ucs.mun.ca).

JOURNAL OF LANGUAGE AND LINGUISTICS, the journal of the

University, has been published since 1982. There are two issues
a year: January-June and July-December.
 The journal provides a forum for publication of original
articles in any area of language and linguistics, particularly
relating to Thai language or other languages in Southeast Asia.

 The OBJECTIVES of the journal are

 1. to disseminate knowledge and research in language and
 linguistics.
 2. to provide a scholarly forum for scholars, teachers and
 others interested in the study of language and
 linguistics.
 3. to promote and encourage original research in language
 and linguistics.

 The JOURNAL OF LANGUAGE AND LINGUISTICS is primarily intended
to provide scholars, teachers, and students of Thai nationality
an outlet to report on current research and to publish original
articles and works written in Thai, an outlet that otherwise would
not be available. As such, the journal is the only specialized
linguistic journal of its type in Thailand. However, manuscripts
written in English from any source are also welcomed.

Message 4: Dial-in Services

Susan Pintzuk asked if there were a local way to connect with the INTERNET.
I've just finished reading *The Internet Companion: A Beginner's Guide to
Global Networking* by Tracy LaQuey and Jenne C. Ryer. They have an excellent
list of resources as well as explanations of Gopher, WAIS and other mystery
words I've been ignoring all semester until the summertime.

First on their list of providers (p. 186) is

Internet Access Providers Compiled and maintained by SRI International
Network Information Systems Center (NISC), Menlo Park, Ca. Available by
anonymous FTP on host ftp.nisc.sri.com, directory netinfo, filenames
Internet-access-providers-US.txt. Also available in hard copy form in
the book *Internet: Getting Started*. Contact the SRI NISC
(address given) for more info.

Hope this helps.

LaQuey's book is readable, informative and has some fun things to try-
It's also short and divided into sections which make it good for standing
in lines,etc.
