5 Bank Street: The Listserv for Willa Cather Scholars
- In an effort to continue building the community of Cather scholars and
students, the Cather Archive sponsors an email
listserv dedicated to scholarship about the life, work, and contexts of
Willa Cather. We have decided to call this listserv "5 Bank Street" (or, in
the convention of listservs, 5BANKSTREET) after the home Cather and Edith
Lewis shared in Greenwich Village between 1912 and 1927, a place where
Cather gathered friends and fellow artists for "Friday teas."
- This listserv is designed to be a place where people engaged in Cather
research can ask questions, try out ideas, challenge perspectives, share
news, and provide communal support for one another. The list is moderated to
prevent inappropriate messages from being sent to the entire list of
subscribers. Though editorial policy will err on the site of permissiveness,
solicitations and general requests for help on impending class assignments
will not be posted to the list.
