The Environmental Studies Association of Canada’s email discussion list (ESAC-L) provides a platform to exchange information among ESAC’s membership and wider community.
Both English and French voices are welcome.
What is the Listserv?
ESAC-L is an un-moderated public LISTSERV list. This means that by simply sending an e-mail message to the list address, you will be sending it to everyone who is signed up to the list. In turn, as a subscriber, you will receive all postings made by others.
How to subscribe or unsubscribe
You can register to join the listserv on this page. From here you can also unsubscribe or change your subscription settings.
Your registration will be held for moderation. Once approved you will start receiving list emails, and be able to send email to the list.
The listserv is currently receiving an unmanageable number of spam subscription requests each day, so it is possible your request may get lost in the mix. If you submitted a subscription request, but have not heard anything for a few days, please email the listserv coordinator (Garrett Richards) directly. In particular, Gmail accounts are usually not approved without a direct email request.
What kind of content will I find on ESAC-L?
List subscribers are encouraged to share any content that fits ESAC’s role as a network of environmental researchers and educators.
Here is some of what you can expect to see on ESAC-L:
- conference announcements and calls for papers
- job announcements
- requests for, or offers of information or assistance
- book, article, periodical, film, etc. recommendations or reviews
- environmental information of general interest
- forwarding of appropriate material from other lists
- discussions that are pertinent to environmental studies
Will I receive spam from this list?
You should not receive spam from this list, as email will only be distributed from approved members. If you do notice suspicious spam activity please contact the list administrator via e-mail at the bottom-left of the Esac-l Info Page.
How do I e-mail the list?
Once registered and approved, you can send email to the esac-l address listed neat the top of the Esac-l Info Page.
Can I receive a copy of emails that I send to the list?
The list will not send you a copy of your own messages unless you change the option “Receive your own posts to the list?” to Yes in your account settings.
Attachments will prevent your email from being delivered automatically and place it into a queue for review. Additionally, emails with attachments do not always make it to all recipients. It is best to provide a link to files (e.g. to a blog post, press release, web page or direct download link) where needed.
