ETUDES FRANCAISES (Presses de l'Universite de Montreal) has recently
published an issue entitled "Sociocritique de la poesie" (vol. 27, no
1). This issue is an important moment in the history of sociocriticism
because poetry, traditionally excluded from this kind of approach, is
specifically studied here from a social point of view. All the
articles, in spite of their diversity, have a common theoretical basis :
Rimbaud and Antoine Gerin-Lajoie, Jules Laforgue and Claude Gauvreau,
XVIIIth century and the contemporary period are examples that illustrate
the intersection of poetry and society.

ETUDES FRANCAISES, 27 : 1, printemps 1991, 134 p.

Subject: Mormonism Discussion Group


We would like to announce the creation of MORMON-L, an electronic
discussion group for Mormon Studies on the BITNET network. This
group has been created with the intention of providing an open
forum for serious discussion of topics relating to the Church of
Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints ("the Mormons"). Topics might
include (but are not limited to) Mormon history, literature, fine
arts, theology, and church life.

The primary purpose of this list is to provide a forum for
serious academic discussion. It is, however, open to all persons
inside and outside academia who wish to engage in substantial
discussion of topics relating to Mormonism. We welcome input
from Mormons and non-Mormons alike.

The discussion on the list will be minimally moderated. This is
necessary because of the very heavy traffic on open Mormon forums
(such as LDS-L), which often amounts to little more than casual
chit-chat. Our purpose in moderation is not to suppress
discussion of controversial or volatile topics, but rather to
limit casual chatter and flames. Moderation will be strictly
limited to screening out blatant personal attacks or vendettas.
MORMON-L is not to be used for active evangelism, whether pro- or
anti-Mormon. Content or style will never be altered by the
editors. It is the hope of the moderators that our only
responsibility will be to forward all postings to the list, and
that any other function will be completely unnecessary.

TO SUBSCRIBE TO MORMON-L, send the following message to
LISTSERV@BYUVM: "Subscribe Mormon-L <your name>," leaving the
subject header blank. Your name will then be added to the list.

If you wish to communicate directly with the list editors without
having your communication posted to the list itself, contact the

--J. Michael Allen <HISJMA@BYUVM.BITNET>
