Email Listservs

Announcement List

Our section Announcement List is used to send out information of interest to the Section (e.g., calls for papers, nominations, etc.). This list will be used very sparingly by a List Manager who is solely responsible for messages. In our section, the Newsletter Editor of any year also serves as List Manager.

The Announcement List (and this list alone) is populated with the email addresses of all section members. In the unlikely event that a member might request that he/she be excluded from the list, an email should be sent to Non-members cannot join the Announcement list.

For substantive comments, get in touch with the List manager:

Discussion List

The Discussion List of our section provides a forum for intellectual exchange on any and all topics within the confines of our section’s areas of interest. The section encourages its members to subscribe to the Discussion list for anything members find useful to their research and teaching needs in comparative as well as historical sociology. The Discussion list is not prepopulated with email addresses. Therefore, every section member who is interested in participating in the Discussion List needs to subscribe as follows:

  1. Address an email to:
  2. Leave the subject field blank.
  3. In the text area or body of the message, type in:
    subscribe comp_historical_soc
    The remainder of the email message must be blank!
  4. Send the message.

Hereafter you will receive an e-mail from with the instruction to respond back with a second email. This step is to ensure that you alone can confirm your subscription. Once the confirmation is sent back, you will receive a message welcoming you to the list. Section members can unsubscribe at any time by sending a message to with this command in the body of the text: unsubscribe comp_historical_soc
