Discussion Lists


ASLE and its members have created several forums to promote a frequent exchange of ideas and information on topics and issues in the field of literature and environment.  Also join us on Facebook and Twitter!


When participating in any of the discussion lists below, keep in mind the following general guidelines. Please try to abide by these guidelines in your postings and responses. The list moderator reserves the right to remove anyone from the list for violation of them.

•  State concisely and clearly the topic of your comments in the subject line.

•  Include only the relevant portions of the original message in your reply: delete header information and put your response before the original posting.

•  Please include a signature tag, with name, affiliation, location, and e-mail address, on all messages.

•  Do not "flame," challenge or attack others. Flaming includes the making of derogatory comments, ridicule, excessive sarcasm and innuendo.

•   All defamatory, abusive, profane, threatening, offensive, or illegal materials or language are strictly prohibited. Information and comments are subject to libel, slander, and antitrust laws.

•  Refrain from posting copyrighted materials to the list.

•  Do not post commercial messages advertising goods and services. Book publication announcements are acceptable, but please do not include extensive blurbs/endorsements, book reviews, or purchasing information--a quick description and link to publisher website should suffice.

•  Do not distribute any SPAM, solicitation, jokes, chain letters, petitions for signatures or letters relating to pyramid schemes, missing persons or once-in-a-lifetime deals.

•  Do not send administrative messages, such as "remove me from the list", through the listserv. To unsubscribe from the list, go to http://interversity.org/mailman/listinfo/asle, scroll down to "ASLE Subscribers" and follow instructions to unsubscribe.

•   Send messages such as "thanks for the information" or "me, too" to individuals--not to the entire list.

•   When using an Auto Reply message for times you are out of the office, please be sure to "Create a Rule" (this is easily done with Microsoft Outlook’s Out of Office Assistant) that would prohibit sending the message to the list.

ASLE-SFRA Discussion List
THis list was just created at the beginning of 2012, as a joint venture to enrich the affiliation between ASLE and the Science Fiction Research Association.  As the ecocritical study of science fiction continues to grow, we hope that this listserv will be a place to share ideas, to announce conferences and CFPs, to discuss courses and texts-in general, to engage in collegial conversation about the intersections between science fiction and environmental thought, and why these intersections matter.
