A New Home for EMLS

EMLS is moving its home site to Sheffield Hallam University. At the moment the site is still at the testing stage, but in a few weeks it will become the permanent main site for the journal. The site will continue to be mirrored at the University of Alberta.

The EMLS editorial group wishes to thank the Cultural Studies Department at Sheffield Hallam for providing support and resources for the new home.  Thanks are also due to the previous sponsors of EMLS, namely the University of Alberta's Department of English and Faculty of Arts (1997-1999), and the University of British Columbia, where EMLS was founded in 1994, and remained until 1997.

While distributed from a new location, our Persistent Universal Resource Locator (PURL) will remain the same, at <http://purl.oclc.org/emls/emlshome.html>; our new contact and mailing addresses are listed in the document below. Please report any difficulties with the new site to the Editor, Lisa Hopkins (L.M.Hopkins@shu.ac.uk) or the Managing Editor (Special Issues), Matthew Steggle (M.Steggle@shu.ac.uk).
