End of ADS-L Digest - 2 Jan 1994 to 3 Jan 1994 ********************************************** There is one message totalling 32 lines in this issue. Topics of the day: 1. ads at NCTE ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Tue, 4 Jan 1994 15:45:13 CST From: Dennis Baron Subject: ads at NCTE Allan Metcalf has asked me to organize the ADS session at NCTE in Orlando next fall (Nov. 18-21 1994). There will be a call for papers in the January ADS Newsletter, but that won't be out until the end of the month. In the mean time, I've offered to put this notice on the NET. (BTW, Allan says he hopes to be networked in about a month) The past 2 NCTE ADS sessions, both on Taboo words and the classroom, were very well attended. Since some of our work is too specialized to attract a good NCTE crowd, Allan and I felt it would be important to pick a session theme that will ensure a good audience. Possibilities include something on sexism or slang, but I am drawn to the issue of politically correct language: our membership and NCTE attendees should both have a lot to say on the subject. (Anybody see the front page article on PC signing in yesterday's NY Times?) Anyway, please send your topics/abstracts to me as soon as possible. NCTE gives a Jan. 12 deadline, but we can have some extra time to get them our list of speakers. BTW, nobody sent me a summary of the New Words session in Toronto, but I did my commentary on information superhighway nonetheless! Must be in the air. (the other) Dennis --
