One charge of the LSA's Committee on the Status of Women in
Linguistics (COSWL) is to gather and distribute information about and
for women in linguistics.  During the past several years, COSWL has
worked toward meeting these goals by sponsoring a number of on-going
projects that track and guide women's career paths: an institutional
questionnaire, a personal questionnaire, mentoring workshops, and a
women's narrative project.  For the 1997 LSA Annual Meeting in Chicago
(January 2-5), COSWL will be organizing a special presentation
entitled "The Lives of Women Linguists: Words and Images", an audio-
visual forum for documenting and celebrating the lives of women in the
The audio portion of the presentation will comprise dramatic readings
based on edited and anonymatized interviews of women linguists,
excerpted from the newly-created database for the COSWL Narrative
The visual presentation will consist of photographs of women linguists
-  to be supplied by women and men in the field today.
COSWL is asking all memebers of the linguistics community to help us
prepare for this important event.  The committee is thus soliciting
photographs of women linguists from all levels of the discipline, from
undergraduate students to professors emeritae.  Photos should feature
women in linguistics, either alone or in groups.
COSWL is especially interested in collecting photographs of all of the
LSA's past women presidents, as a tribute to their important
contributions to the society.
COSWL invites all interested parties to contribute to the project by
lending up to 7 photographs consistent with the theme of the exhibit.
(Anyone with a larger number of photos that they believe would be of
special value to the project, should contact David Silva before
submitting more than 7 photos.)
To submit photos, please follow these instructions:
1.  Select up to seven photographs depicting women in linguistics and
label the back of each with your name, phone #, and e-mail address.
We suggest that you use a mailing label to do this; do not write
directly on the back of the photo, as the pressure of the pen may
damage the print.
2.  Also attach to the back of the photograph the names of all
identifiable subjects; this can be done with either a label
(preferred) or with a "post-it".  If there is more than one person in
the photo, please clearly identify each.
3.  Place (a) the photographs and (b) a self-addressed stamped
envelope (with sufficient postage and clearly marked "PHOTOS: DO NOT
BEND") into a [slightly] larger envelope (also marked "DO NOT BEND")
and send to:
   David Silva                  or  Mary Bucholtz

Selected photographs will be digitally enlarged and reproduced for the
January exhibit.  All photographs will be returned in the
self-addressed stamped envelopes you provide.
After the Chicago meeting, the materials from the LSA exhibit will be
archived on the World Wide Web, thereby allowing greater access to the
words and images of women in the field.
If you have questions, please contact a member of COSWL or
e-mail David Silva at DAVID at UTA.EDU.
