Subject: COSWL speaker on Thurs. at LSA

I just received a note from a person who asked if there wasn't some COSWL
(the Committee on the Status of Women in Linguistics) event for Thursday
evening at the LSA? She hadn't seen it in the preliminary program. (This
is because the Exec. Committee puts only the activities refereed papers and
colloquia in the prelimary program.)

YES, indeed,on Thursday evening at 7:30, COSWL will be hosting a specially
invited speaker, Shulamit Reinharz, Professor and Director of Women's
Studies at Brandeis, author of an award-winning book _Feminist Methods in
Social Research_, Oxford UP, 1992. She will speak on "The Impact of
Feminist Research on the Social Sciences." A discussion period will follow.

An open COSWL business meeting will follow from 8:30-9:00. All LSA members
and friends are invited.

>From 9-10 pm, there will be a COSWL-sponsored "tea," again open to all the
LSA. We hope you can come to all or part of the evening.

For all of those interested in the formation of a caucus for those
interested in issues for women, I know that Birch Moonwomon has been
working on this. Stay tuned for posters or info at the LSA (and if she
wants to make an announcement at the COSWL meeting, I will have space for
her on our agenda).

Hope to see you in Boston!

COSWL chair, 1993-94
