Selected Readings, No 68

March 15, 1999

"In this Work, when it shall be found that much is omitted, let it not be forgotten that much likewise is performed." -- Samuel Johnson

 Greetings! Selected Readings is compiled and edited by Kevin Berland, with the able assistance of the January-February Volunteer Fire Brigade, viz., Erin Blake, Dorothy Medlin, Benoît Melançon, and A.J. Wright, not to mention the ever-present company of the Man in the Funny Hat, the Operator of the Moderately Elegant Machines, the Blue Distance Woman, and the Secret Admirer. This issue, released on the Ides of March, the day the buzzards return to Hinckley Ohio -- that sweet augury of impending spring -- is dedicated to the memory of Yehudi Menuhin.

 What kinds of things make it into this eclectic bibliography? Good question! Please see the explanations and caveats on the Selected Readings Modus Operandi Page.

 All links given in this issue were operational on the publication date; if you're visiting in the future (relatively speaking) we cannot ensure the links will still be up. Newly-listed websites are indicated with a little blue ball -- -- and book titles with a green asterisk -- * -- at the left margin. Also new in this number are plentiful links to H-NET reviews of recent books.

  Contributions of new bibliographical materials are always welcome, via regular email or attachments thereunto.

  Site web: Archéologie du littéraire au Québec (1759-1839). L'A.L.A.Q. ("Archéologie du littéraire au Québec") a été fondé en 1990 par Bernard Andrès et René Beaudoin, à partir de leurs travaux sur Pierre de Sales Laterrière (1743-1815). Le projet a ensuite été soumis par B. Andrès au Conseil de recherches en sciences humaines du Canada (CRSHC) qui le subventionne depuis 1991. Les deux premières phases du projet ont permis de mettre à jour et d'analyser les premiers textes littéraires conçus et diffusés au Québec entre la Conquête et le tournant du XIXe siècle.

 Website: Asociacion Espanola de Estudios sobre Lengua, Pensamiento y Cultura Clasica. [LOGO-L es una lista de distribución pública y no moderada que actúa sobre dos grandes ámbitos en íntima conexión: la Cultura Clásica y "LOGO. Asociación Española de Estudios sobre Lengua, Pensamiento y Cultura Clásica." En Cultura Clásica están reunidas no únicamente disciplinas como la Filología Clásica, en sus dos vertientes, griega y latina, sino también todo tipo de estudios como la Historia o la Filosofía Antiguas: en suma, cualquier ámbito de trabajo y estudio, centrado en la Antigüedad Greco-Romana, que tenga algo que ver con su lengua, su pensamiento o su cultura. La vocación de "LOGO. Asociación Española de Estudios sobre Lengua, Pensamiento y Cultura Clásica" es marcadamente interdisciplinar; nos interesa estudiar la lengua, el pensamiento y, en general, la cultura grecolatina desde todos los ámbitos de conocimiento posibles. Pero, principalmente, queremos mostrar la permanente vigencia de la cultura clásica a través de sus múltiples manifestaciones, intentando que nuestras actividades posean siempre una dimensión actual. LOGO está en constante movimiento y nuestra única plataforma reivindicativa de las humanidades y de la cultura clásica consiste en el desarrollo y organización de actividades encaminadas a hacer patente la actualidad y atractiva vigencia del legado clásico greco-romano. En el primero de estos ámbitos, prácticamente ilimitado por su extensión, LOGO-L aboga por un debate libre y espontáneo en torno a todos los temas que suscitan interés en el mundo de la Antigüedad Greco-Romana, con un tratamiento siempre riguroso. En el otro ámbito, más concreto, LOGO-L pretende ser también un lugar de encuentro donde todos, sean o no socios, presenten ideas, propuestas, críticas y sugerencias sobre la actividad real o potencial de "LOGO. Asociación Española de Estudios sobre Lengua, Pensamiento y Cultura Clásica", como entidad esencialmente generalista y abierta. En LOGO-L se funden estos dos ámbitos para definir todavía un nuevo espacio intermedio: el intercambio general de información sobre actividades académicas, noticias sobre proyectos en ciernes o en marcha, aplicaciones y productos, datos sobre bibliografía y, por supuesto, manifestaciones de interés para la colaboración tecnológica y académica entre personas.]
