LITERARY ACADEMIC DISCUSSION GROUPS

Here is a listing of some literary discussion groups you may want to join along with the addresses of the listservers that carry them. If you can't find what you're looking for in the list below, try Stephanie da Silva's literature page from her Publicly Accessible Mailing Lists, or try searching Liszt.

Once you have subscribed to one of these networks, remember that when you want to post a message directly to the other members, you do not send the message to the listserv address for the network but to the network itself. Thus, if you want to post a message to the members of Ansax-l, you would address it to ansax-l@wvnvm.wvnet.edu, not to listserv@wvnvm.wvnet.edu; to the members of Chaucernet, you would send your message to chaucer@uic.edu, and so on.
