Dear collegues,

I'm posting this message for a friend who is very interested in
existentialism. She is studying German Literature and wants to write a
dissertation on Borchert and Extentialism. Was there a existentialistic
movement in Germany? Can anyone help her on this topic? Especially those
who are familiar with Kierkegaard, Heidegger and Sartre are asked to

Thanks in advance.

I would be very grateful to anybody who could tell me about their
experiences with electronic conferences. The graduate students here
at the department of French at Queen's University in Kingston will be
hosting an electronic conference on "L'informatique dans les =E9tudes
fran=E7aises" in mid March. I'm familiar with various technologies
(textual based multi-user shared environments, communications programs
such as Cool Talk and Netmeeting, certain CGI and Java packages), but
I'd like to hear first had accounts of what seems to work and what
doesn't. To be a bit more specific about our needs, I'm looking for
readily available, platform flexible, and preferably free software
that would assure at least textual communication, and, if possible,
some options for visual exchange.

If people wish to answer me directly, I'll summarize the responses
for the others on the list.

Thanks in advance.

Dear Willard
I was wondering if any HUMANISTS could tell me where I could find some
accounts/reports of Busa's Index Thomisticus.
