For your edification, there are a number of related listserver lists
and newsfeed services which deal in anthropological topics. This list
is not all-inclusive, so please feel free to tell me about other ones.
To search for lists you might be interested in, mail LISTSERV@UBVM (or
your local listserver) the message LIST GLOBAL /xxxx (substituting the
search string for the xxxx). As usual, send any comments to me at


Generally, to subscribe to a list, send the command SUB list_name
your_name, to LISTSERV@address. If that fails, contact the listowner.
Each list has its own rules about who can join and post, but most are
open to all. General Anthropology Bulletin Board
