The purpose, functions, and uses of this blog

20 08 2009

The primary purpose of our new blog is to augment the haphazard and idiosyncratic modes of communication that currently link the SSPP e-board and membership – basically, our panels, newsletter, and e-mail – by creating a platform for ongoing and many-sided conversation about almost anything pertinent to the Society.

To fulfill this purpose, the blog will function in three essential ways:

  1. it will allow the e-board to publicize Society events (panels, roundtables, elections, etc.);
  2. it will allow the membership to contribute to the Society by proposing CFP topics, weighing in on certain e-board decisions, and voting in elections;
  3. it will allow the membership to communicate with one another about the publication of books and articles, related and member blogs, CFPs and conferences, meeting coordination, etc.

In order to take advantage of this new platform, members may either

a) comment on any post, or

b) e-mail the administrator ( a matter for a new post.
