Re: ANNOUNCEMENT: New List Moderator

Dear List Members:

I figured I'd make a bit of an introductory announcement to follow
Flannon's announcement. As Flannon did say I will be performing the
moderator's role for the list. My personal style is very hands off, no
filtering, no fussing over what gets to count as appropriate subjects to
discuss, etc. unless things do get uncivil and out of hand, and I mostly
think groups such as this one self-police very well. I will however expect
to help out in any way I can, and to learn as much as possible from all

My area of research and passion is Contemporary Rhetorical Theory, with
special focus on narratives, identity, and memory. I moderate another list
on Latino/a Communication issues for the La Raza Caucus of the National
Communication Association. I do consider myself a novice about Foucault
and look forward to moderating and sharing with you all.

Best Regards,

Nathaniel I. Cordova
