Subject: New List on American Literature

Announcing a New List for Teachers of American Literature:

*"Teaching the American Literatures" (T-AMLIT)*

"Teaching the American Literatures" (T-AMLIT) is a new electronic forum
for teachers and scholars interested in the literatures of the United
States. T-AMLIT is dedicated to fostering discussion about innovative and
effective ways to teach a radically expanded American literature.

"Teaching the American Literatures" (T-AMLIT) has several aspects. It is
a moderated Discussion List for teachers to ask questions, converse and
debate critical and pedagogical approaches to American literature, as well
as provide a forum for the exchange of information on both print and
electronic resources in American literature, including syllabi,
bibliographies, study guides, and other pedagogical materials.

"Teaching the American Literatures" is also an Electronic Conference,
with extended electronic seminars on topics such as "Teaching Native
American Literature," "Teaching Class Issues Through American
Literature," "Introducing Literary Theory into American Literature
Courses" and so on; there will also be online seminars focussed on
accessing and utilizing internet resources related to American literature
for both scholarship and teaching.

* T-AMLIT and The Database of American Literature *

>From the beginning, "Teaching the American Literatures" was conceived
as the complement to a partner project: "The Database of American
Literature," being created through Georgetown University.

"The Database of American Literature" will be an online archive of
pedagogical, critical, and scholarly materials on American literature, as
well as a gateway to hundreds of American literature resources available
on the Internet. "Teaching the American Literatures," as a discussion list
and electronic conference, will serve as a primary source and
clearinghouse for the generation of information and materials for "The
Database of American Literature." "The Database of American Literature"
is under construction; its first phase will be accessible by late Spring,

the list-conference of IPSA, the Institute for Psychological Study
of the Arts, University of Florida, Gainesville FL 32611-2036.

Our list is interested in the psychological study of literature in
particular, but also film and, in practice, any of the arts. We
tend to be psychoanalytically focused, but we welcome comments from
any psychological orientation. We also carry postings simply
dealing with psychoanalysis or psychology in general. Recent
queries and discussions have focused on: course syllabuses in the
field; arts and the Internet; the Gates profile in the _New
Yorker_; blind and deaf patients and therapists; chaos theory as
applied to human identity; the validity of Lacan; art therapy.

The list has been running since January 1993. As of March 1994,
PSYART has about 180 subscribers from 16 countries, including
humanists, clinicians, artists, students, and experimenters.

To subscribe, send a one-line message as follows:

Bibliography for 1993. Also, messages are logged and kept in files
of the form: PSYARTLG <YYMMDD>, where the date is the ending date.
