BLOG BMCR

Bryn Mawr Classical Review has created a blog for its reviews, beginning with the first review of August 2008, to encourage informal reactions. For comments on older reviews, please e-mail classrev@brynmawr.edu and ask that the review be posted to the blog.

There is a link in each review to take you to the blog, or you can find the blog at http://www.bmcreview.org/. The postings can be anonymous.

  1. Congratulations to the Editorial Board. I think there is a lot of potential in this idea.

  2. I think the invitation for anonymous postings is a mistake. If someone has the inclination to post a comment, he/she should be willing to put his/her name to it.

  3. I agree that this is a great idea. Would it be at all possible for there to be an RSS feed for comments as well as posts?

  4. You can subscribe to comments for a particular post by going to the link for that post; there will be a link at the bottom of the page to "subscribe to post comments."

  5. Pace Paul Scotton, potential contributors without tenure will no doubt appreciate the anonymity. The comment moderation will prevent abuse.

  6. I disagree with Paul Scotton on the anonymity issue. If this blog is to foster genuine academic free speech, then those without tenure need to be able to remain anonymous. The moderators can ensure that nothing abusive or libellous is posted.

  7. I disagree with Paul Scotton about the anonymity issue. If this blog is to foster genuine academic free speech, then those without tenure need to be protected from reprisals. The moderators can ensure that nothing abusive or libellous is posted.
