I, too, am happy to see this list active, though it came as a bit of a
surprise. I'd originally been planning to use it last fall when I taught a
senior seminar in social theory from a historical perspective for
Washington State University's Vancouver campus. We focused on the "great
lessons" of the 20th century, built a 20th century virtual time capsule
(using my history website: http://www.teleport.com/~skerlin/history.html),
and we focused heavily on the issues and events of the 1960s. One book I
taught was Judith Clavir Albert's book "The Sixties Papers: Documents from
A Rebellious Decade". It's still available via Greenwood Publishers,
though originally published by Praeger in the early 80s.
I have two questions to ask, since this year I'm overloaded with online
work and need to effectively manage my mail volume: (1) How can we get a
digest of postings to this list (like once a day)? Is it a listserv list,
or does it respond to listserv commands?
-for the digest, unsubscribe sixties-l; and then resubscribe sixties-l-digest
-this is a majordomo list and responds to majordomo commands]
(2) Will these discussions and resources be archived on the web? If yes,
what will be the address for them?
the list will be archived at:
My wife and I manage an online discussion forum about graduate education
issues (AERA-GSL), and we've found it helpful to post "how to
subscribe/unsubscribe" and list website info at the bottom of each message
automatically, using the listserv software.
perhaps this can be done in majordomo; i will check and see if
implementation is possible]
Thank you very kindly, and welcome back,
Scott Kerlin, Ph.D.
