Chinese Cemetery Studies - A discussion list


Chinese Cemetery Studies is an electronic discussion list, begun by Wendy Rouse in 1997, which brings together the community of scholars working on aspects of Chinese (particularly overseas Chinese) funerary and mortuary practices. The list has been hosted by the University of Idaho and managed by Terry Abraham <tabraham @> since December 1998.

List Practices

Postings to the list will be limited to subscribers. The list is not moderated or controlled in any fashion. Good taste and good sense and an appreciation for the serendipitous are expected to prevail. The list manager <tabraham @> will assist those having difficulty with subscribing and unsubscribing.

All messages posted to the list are sent automatically to all subscribers. Be very cautious about replying to messages. Replies to messages sent to the list are sent automatically to all subscribers, not simply to the author of the original message.

While it is expected that all posts will be on topic for the subject of this list, the best response to off-topic posts is the delete key. This is true, as well, when commands are inadvertently sent to the list.
