Screen-L Subscription Information

E-mail has provided a new way for teachers, scholars and students of film and television to share their pedagogical experiences and theoretical/historical/production discoveries--and pose questions and issues to the international film/TV studies community.

This new networking capability is facilitated by LISTSERV--a piece of software that operates as a clerical robot and links subscribers in a "discussion list." Subscribers send e-mail directly to LISTSERV. Once LISTSERV receives that e-mail it instantly distributes it to all of the other subscribers on the list. The subscribers can then respond to that e-mail and pretty soon discussions on topics of common interest are rolling.

Screen-L is a discussion list that connects people working in the area of film and television studies, whether they be filmmakers who teach or researchers working in an archive or television production educators or historians or... You get the picture. Screen-L is open to discussions ranging from the arcane (Baudrillard) to the practical (roommate match-ups for the next conference), from the abstract (discourse theory) to the concrete (job announcements).

There's no charge for this service and the subscription process is ridiculously easy. Send the following message to

subscribe Screen-L your name here

your name here is where you put your name as you'd like it to appear in the list. For example:

subscribe Screen-L Budd Boetticher

When you subscribe you'll be sent further information about Screen-L. In order to send messages to the list you simply send e-mail to (note that this is different from the LISTSERV address). Bingo. That's it.

I look forward to seeing you on the list. If you'd like more information, don't hesitate to contact Jeremy Butler through one of the following channels:
