**************** Announcing *FLING* ********************

 A new list for Feminists in LINGuistics

FLING is a woman-centered list for women in linguistics and related
fields, such as anthropology, artificial intelligence, communications,
foreign language pedagogy, philosophy, sociology, psychology, and
women's studies. The list has been created to provide women with a
forum in which to discuss professionally relevant issues, broadly
construed, and in which the terms of discussion are to be established
and maintained by women.

FLING is intended to embrace discussion on all themes that touch the
professional lives of the women on the list, including relevant
personal issues. FLING subscribers are invited to discuss issues in
the field of language and gender, language and sexuality, and other
research areas of particular relevance to women, as well as voice
professional concerns regarding mentoring and networking, academic
hirings and tenure decisions, grants and financial aid, teaching
strategies, and women's experiences in the field. Subscribers are
also encouraged to post announcements about forthcoming conferences or
publications on issues of special relevance to women.

FLING is woman-oriented, but not separatist. All listmembers are
asked to respect the list's primary guideline that discussion on the
list be woman-oriented, defined, and directed. Please direct any
questions or concerns about the list to the list managers, Megan
Crowhurst ( and Kira Hall
