Subject: New server list: linguistics of ancient languages
We are pleased to announce the introduction of a new mail-server list,
designed to facilitate communication between postgraduate students working
in any of the fields of linguistics of ancient languages.
The list is called ancientpglinguisticslists.bham.ac.uk
The list aims to encourage discourse between those working on any
linguistic aspect of ancient languages, primarily focused towards
postgraduate researchers. However, all are welcome to participate in list
discussions that would like to keep abreast of postgraduate developments in
this field. With recognition of the interdisciplinary nature of the topic,
chronological boundaries have been set from the ancient Near East to the
early medieval period (including Italic, Celtic and Old English).
Linguistic fields can encompass all aspects of the subject, including
theoretical linguistics, socio-, historical and contact linguistics.
It is hoped that the list will encourage a closer network of postgraduate
researchers, who may not have the opportunity to meet colleagues working in
similar fields. The list has also been designed to create a forum for the
cross posting of ideas, as well as being a tool for researchers either
offering or seeking advice. Members can also use it to make others aware
of important upcoming events.
It is hoped that a postgraduate colloquium will be organized from the new
community in early 2008.
