Just added to SCREEN-L FILELIST:
A paper on DESIGNING WOMEN to be presented at the Society for Cinema
Studies conference this weekend: "Redesigning (?) the TV Sitcom: The
Case of Designing Women," by Jeremy Butler.
This paper uses Mellencamp's article on Gracie Allen and Lucille Ball
and Rowe's discussion of Roseanne Arnold as "unruly woman" to
discuss how the women of DESIGNING WOMEN (possibly) disrupt the conventions
of the sitcom genre. How is the feminist discourse articulated in
this program's episodes?
SCREEN-L FILELIST is an archive of text files related to film and TV.
E-mail users may retrieve these files through normal e-mail channels
without using File Transfer Protocol (FTP). To nab a file, send mail to
LISTSERV@UA1VM (BITNET) or [log in to unmask] (Internet) and put the
following command in the very first line of the message:
GET <filename> <filetype>
Replace "<filename> <filetype>" with the name and type of the file you
want. In the example above, the name is SCSJOB and the type is ASC. So
the command would be:
GET BUTLER ASC
Note: there is no period between the filename and filetype as there is in
MS or PC DOS.
When listserv receives that command it will send the file to your
regular mail address.
There are a few other files on SCREEN-L FILELIST as well as files containing
ALL of the messages ever posted on SCREEN-L. Here's a quick list of
the current holdings.

BUTLER ASC Jeremy Butler on DESIGNING WOMEN (SCS paper)
I have seen the moment of my greatness flicker,
And I have seen the eternal Footman hold
my coat, and snicker,
And in short, I was afraid.
--T. S. Eliot
