Finding our people

Professional Organizations & Listservs

One of the tasks for us this quarter is to learn about  “who our people are” and figure out how to write a thesis that speaks to “our people”. One way to find our people is to look for the professional organizations and other groups where our people meet, including online arenas (like listservs).


Journals present the codification of scholarly knowledge that is compiled by “our people”. Some journals even have the same name as the organization itself, making them easy to recognize as “our people.” Other journals, however, are off-shoots that were put together by our people–and some are even a combination of peoples–which gets super tricky.
