Sociology of literature has taken in the last fifty years a number of various theoretical directions: sociocriticism, social discourse analysis, study of the literary field, institutions, literary groups and associations, socio-poetic, reader¡¯s sociology, sociology of the editing world, etc. Because of this very diverse theoretical activity, researches coming from a sociological approach of literature have, ¨D and as the lack of a peer-reviewed journal shows ¨D, never succeeded at coordinating themselves at an international level. The email list Socius, launched at the initiative of the multi-university group COnTEXTES and the Coll¨¨ge de sociocritique of Montreal, has given itself the goal of reducing this shattering through information diffusion and friendly intellectual emulation.
The Socius list welcomes all sorts of useful information and privileges a large approach of the discipline: the subscribers can announce seminars, study days and conferences, book and article publications, students¡¯ thesis submissions, positions openings, prizes, scholarships and international exchanges programs, etc. The Socius list also proposes to host calls of articles and book chapters, questions, and, if appropriate, debates on controversial questions.
Any message proposal should be written in French or in English, and submitted to the website managers, who may choose to publish information in an other language if it proves to be of major interest.
