Subject: H-Net seeks literature lists


As you may already know,

H-Net is the newest, and now one of the largest organizations in
the humanities. It is a network of daily newsletters and
discussions groups edited by and for scholars. Its 49 operating
lists reach 33,000 subscribers in 62 countries, with another 2000
subscribers added every month. The lists are free and publish
news, discussions and original scholarly reviews and short
studies. The H-Net lists have been endorsed by dozens of
scholarly organizations, and comprise the single most-used
communications medium in higher education today. The lists are
used by teachers--they teach several hundred thousand
undergraduates each semester, and use H-Net list to keep in touch
with fresh ideas and new techniques.

Richard Jensen, the director of the H-Network, teaches in the History
department at UIC. Under his direction, H-Net has flourished--especially in
historical studies. Recently, H-Net received two grants from NEH that
enable them to extend their services to other Humanities studies.

I write to invite you to start a H-Net list in literary studies. If you are
the owner of discussion list devoted to a literary period, figure, or
theory, you may wish to link that list with the H-Network to take advantage
of belonging to a world-wide network of discussion lists.

If you are interested in starting a discussion list on a literary topic or
in linking an existing list to the H-Network, please send a message to
Richard Jensen or me.



If you wish more detailed information about H-Net lists, please reply to
this message and I will forward it to you.
