Stein-L:
An electronic Discussion List on the Art of Gertrude Stein

Stein-L is an interactive electronic forum dedicated to the discussion of the works of Gertrude Stein. This message contains a description of the list, its netiquette, and technical information on the subscription process. 

What Stein-L is:
Stein-L is an academically inspired virtual salon for the discussion of all aspects regarding Gertrude Stein's life and work and the issues pertinent to it, such as Modernism/ Postmodernism, Women Writers, Expatriate Literature, Visual Arts, Sexuality and Gender, Politics, and many more.  Targeted towards scholars, teachers, students, and Stein-aficionados, Stein-L also functions as a medium for announcements and bulletins, notes and queries, syllabi, lesson plans, conferences, publications, and scholarly papers.  The purpose of Stein-L is to identify and establish a virtual community dedicated to the study and dissemination of Stein's work.

What Stein-L is not:
Stein-L is not a place to find someone to write a term paper for anyone else, or to do any basic research that can be accomplished by simply reading one of Stein's books and consulting a city or county library.

Who owns Stein-L:
The listowner's name is Sonja Streuber.  Please feel free to e-mail her at shstreuber@ucdavis.edu with any questions or concerns about your subscription to Stein-L that this document does not answer.

Necessary Netiquette

Keeping your message format simple...
Please keep in mind that people use e-mail programs of varying complexity.  Some of these programs are not equipped to process stationery, HTML-coded text, attachments, or picture files of any format, so please avoid using any of these functions.  Set your message format option to "PLAIN TEXT" instead (default in unix-based programs like PINE; in all other programs easily findable in "options" or "settings" or by consulting the help-file).

Keeping your message clear...
Just a few common courtesy points here:  Indicate what your message is about in the subject line, so that other list members may read and respond to your message more effectively.  When you reply to a message, please quote the important passages of that message, but, in the interest of bandwidth-conservation, avoid including the entire message in your reply.  Also, please remember to sign your messages and to include your e-mail address (or you may choose to use an automated signature file).

Keeping your message safe...
Remember that any discussion list is a public forum.  This is why posting private information, such as private snail mail addresses, telephone numbers, and so forth, is not recommended.  Also, remember to perform regular virus checks on your computer for your and other list members' safety.

Observing copyright...
It may be tempting to post materials from another publication (or from someone else's yet unpublished writing) to the list for discussion.  In the interest of the fair use policy and ongoing internet copyright debates, please limit yourself to excerpts of no more than 150 words, or summarize the source, and provide at least the name of the original author andthe place and date of original publication (if the source is available on the web, you might want to include a full URL).

Remaining respectful...
Sometimes, academic discussions can get heated, especially concerning such sensitive issues as Stein's politics, sexual/ textual theories, and others--and sometimes, you might have to agree to disagree with another list member's readings, opinions, or theoretical approach.  Please do so in a respectful and productive manner; name-calling and personal attacks (also known as "flames") will not be tolerated.

Spamming...
If you feel that someone is sending unsolicited commercial bulk-mail to the list (advertising products and services unrelated to list content), please contact the list owner at shstreuber@ucdavis.edu and forward the suspected spam with the full header (advanced MIME-format) information.  The listowner will use Spamcop to register and pursue any spammers.

For any questions about Stein-L that this document does not answer, please e-mail the listowner, Sonja Streuber, at shstreuber@ucdavis.edu.
