New IGA Listserv

As some of you know, a suggestion was made at the AGM in Cholula to start an official listserv for the IGA.  We thought this was a fabulous idea, and so the new IGA listserv is now up and running.  We’ll use the listserv, in conjunction with the website, to circulate the CFPs for our conferences (expect the CFP for Manchester in September), but we also hope the listserv will prove a way to stay in touch with the IGA and to exchange gothic publication news, calls for papers, and other relevant info with your gothic colleagues.  What follows are instructions for how to join, and we hope you all will. We’re hoping that, in combination with the website, the listserv will prove an effective way to update our members on the association, our conferences, and all things gothic.

To sign on to the listserv, send an email to LISTSERV@KIL-LSV-1.UCIS.DAL.CA, with a blank subject line and the following command—exactly as written–in the main body of the email:

               SUBSCRIBE IGA

After sending this, you should receive a confirmation email: follow the instructions in that email (basically, you’ll be asked to click on a particular link) to confirm that you want to subscribe.  Once done, you’ll receive an email with some basic information on how to post to the listserv, and some basic commands you can use to configure the emails the way you like.  If you have any questions, feel free to email Jason.  Once we’ve seen enough people join, we’ll send out a welcome message to get things rolling.

That’s all for now.  Please let us know if you have any questions.

Justin and Jason
