Good point, Tom. One I hadn't really anticipated.
The affiliation of SCREEN-L with academic organizations is a concept
in its formative stages. Suggestions such as these are very helpful.
The last thing I want to see is SCREEN-L turning into some kind of
bureaucratic quagmire of rules and regs. I think it's possible to
maintain its free flow of discussion and further optimize its use
in the dissemination of film/TV studies information. But maybe
SCS/UFVA cosponsorship isn't the way.
WE'll just have to see. Thanks for the input.
In our country we have those three unspeakably
precious things: freedom of speech, freedom of
conscience, and the prudence never to practice
