Subject: WMST-L (Women's Studies List)

WMST-L, a Women's Studies list, has just been established. Its purpose
is to facilitate discussion of Women's Studies issues, especially those
concerned with research, teaching, and program administration, and to
publicize relevant conferences, job announcements, calls for papers,
publications, and the like. It is hoped that WMST-L will also serve as
a central repository for course materials, curriculum proposals and
projects, bibliographies, and other files related to Women's Studies.

To subscribe to WMST-L, send the following command via e-mail or
interactive message to LISTSERV@UMDD (Bitnet) or LISTSERV@UMDD.UMD.EDU

Subject: Association for the History of the Language Sciences


The North American Association for the History of the Language Sciences
was founded in December 1987 to promote, encourage, and support the
study of the history of the sciences concerned with language, such as
linguistics, anthropology, philosophy, psychology, sociology, and other
disciplines, both theoretical and applied, from the earliest beginnings
to the present, including non-European traditions. In addition to the
critical presentation of the origin and development of particular ideas,
theoretical concepts, terms, schools of thought or particular trends,
the Association is interested in the discussion of the methodological,
philosophical, and epistemological foundations of a historiography of
the language sciences.

The Association promotes these aims by publishing (twice annually) a
newsletter, by sponsoring an annual meeting and by serving as a liaison
with European societies interested in related topics. The newsletter
keeps members in touch and informed about upcoming meetings, including
those of other societies, ongoing research projects, and recent
publications in the field. The annual meeting is held in conjunction
with the Linguistic Society of America's annual meeting; the next
meeting will be January 10-12 in Philadelphia. The Association
particpates in the planning for the triennial International Conference
on the History of the Language Sciences (last held in Galway, Sept.
1990; next meeting in Washington, DC, in August, 1993) and maintains
regular contact with such European societies as the Henry Sweet Society
for the History of Linguistic ideas and the Societe d'Histoire et
d'Epistemologie des Sciences du Langage.

Annual dues are $10 (American) and 12$ (Canadian). Checks drawn on US
