Subject: Introductions are welcome

Organization: University of NC at Greensboro

Many thanks to Marco Ferraguti and Anagnosti Agelarakis for their recent
self-introductions.  Quite a few people have subscribed to Darwin-L in the
last few days, and our total membership is now just over 550.  I thought I
would take the opportunity that Marco and Anagnosti have provided to invite
any other new (or old) members of the group who have not introduced themselves
to do so if they wish.  Back in September when Darwin-L was first established
quite a few people sent short messages saying something about their interests
in the historical sciences, and it was a great pleasure to see the variety of
backgrounds represented here.  We have evolutionary biologists, historical
linguists, archeologists, historians, paleontologists, anthropologists,
geologists, Classicists, systematists, philosophers of science, and many
others among us, just as I had hoped we would when Darwin-L was created.  Our
interdisciplinary character has inspired a good deal of helpful collegiality
and professionalism which is very gratifying to me as list owner and which
gives every indication of continuing.  Much recent discussion has focussed on
comparisons between historical linguistics and evolutionary biology, but
comparative notes across the entire range of historical sciences from geology
to cosmology to textual transmission are always welcome at any time.

New or old members may retrieve copies of past Darwin-L message logs either
from listserv@ukanaix.cc.ukans.edu (send the message INFO DARWIN-L to that
address for complete instructions) or from the experimental Darwin-L gopher
on rjohara.uncg.edu (numeric address  Several bibliographies
on the historical sciences are also available on the ukanaix listserv and
the Darwin-L gopher as well.

Welcome again to all of our new members.
