Current Research -- Southwest
[ American Antiquity Style, but NOT American Antiquity ]

As you know, SWA http://www.swanet.org/sasig.html uses the SASIG 
to distribute via e-mail current events information on southwestern 
archaeology, anthropology and history.  The SASIG is a good service, but it 
doesn't quite do what American Antiquity did with it's former 'Current 
Research' section.

SWA is contemplating a new web area for 'Current Research -- Southwest'. The 
Current Research area would be different from the SASIG current events area. 
SWA expects to emulate a known style ( the American Antiquity approach); an 
electronic version has two advantages:

1.   'SWA Current Research -- Southwest' will be timely and available often
2.   'SWA Current Research -- Southwest' will have room for great detail 
     in an electronic version

We seek an Editor to shape, mold, and imprint their professional knowledge 
and intellectual character on the new SWA service.  If you would like to 
serve as the Editor for 'SWA Current Research -- Southwest', please e-mail 
SWA in confidence.  Tell us about your archaeological expertise, editorial 
skills, on-line capabilities, and how you would want to structure the 
content, timing and periodicity of the CR web page.

The position is a volunteer position (no pay).
