Subject: New email symposium

"Philosophy and Literature," an interdisciplinary journal published
by the Johns Hopkins University Press, announces a new
electronic-mail list service for philosophers and literary critics,
scholars and theorists. PHIL-LIT offers news, job and book
announcements, calls for papers, and conference plans. Subscribers
post queries, trade inside information and advice, preview drafts of
articles and reviews, dispute, praise, congratulate, insult, refute,
and defend one another.

At present there is no means of linking the various practitioners
and unifying the various activities in the field of literature and
philosophy. PHIL-LIT is being created to fill that void. It is
intended as a single source of information which is also an exchange
of ideas--an electronic newsletter run on democratic principles. It
owes allegiance to no particular school or style of criticism, and
is open to anyone who takes a serious interest in philosophical
interpretations of literature, literary investigations of classic
works of philosophy, philosophy of language, and literary theory.

 To subscribe send the following message:


 E.g., SUBSCRIBE PHIL-LIT Herman Northrop Frye

Subject: A.Word.A.Day


I have created a wordserver which will mail out an English vocabulary
word and its definition to the subscribers, every day. If you'd
like to subscribe to A.Word.A.Day, send a message to:
 with the subject line:
 subscribe <your full name here>
 and leave the body of the message blank.

 This procedure will enroll you as a subscriber to the wordserver.
 That's all you have to do. After that everyday, you'll receive
 a word and its definition in mail.
