I would like to second Louis's suggestions here.

However, I would be interested in how to go about this task.

At present it seems to me that this should be relatively unnecessary so
long as those posting made sure that their subject lines corresponded to
the topics actually under discussion in the body of the message.

Generally, I appreciate the fact that this is a pretty interdisciplinary
list--ironically, some time ago many felt that there were too many
economists rather than too many in cultural studies.

However, I would also be interested in the idea of new, more specialized
(and smaller, hence less time-consuming) lists, like the frankfurt-school
list, although that hasn't seen much action at all.  Any ideas?  Private
replies would probably be best.
