This listserv sends out brief descriptions only.  For further 
details, follow the link listed.

Please send me items to post to the list that would be of interest to 
Society members:  position announcements, postdoctoral announcements, 
grant and funding opportunities, conference announcements, calls for 
papers, and brief queries on research topics.  The sooner you send me 
something, the more likely that I will be able to have it posted 
before its deadline.
