Warring States Project
For questions or corrections, the Project may be reached via the E-mail link at the bottom of every page of this site. For those taking a more direct part in the work of the Project, the principal means of contact is by dialogue on one or more E-lists. The oldest and most general of these is the Warring States Workshop (WSW), which began on 8 March 1997 as a medium for the discussion of Conference papers. It later replaced a previous distribution of postal Notes and Queries, and now parallels the Conferences as a general discussion medium in its own right: a forum for ongoing collaboration in the task of clarifying Warring States texts and their historical implications. On 1 April 1999, after distributing 1,428 messages, WSW shifted to a different Internet server, and acquired a message archive; that server itself has since been acquired by Yahoo. WSW and the specialized E-lists ink the Project and about 225 scholars around the world.
All Project lists presume active participation and basic scholarly civility. That understanding is spelled out in the pages below. If it is acceptable, the next step for an interested individual is to apply to join whichever E-list may be appropriate.
- Basic Understanding
- Procedures and Problems for All Lists
- Project E-mail Lists
- WSW (Warring States Workshop). Classical texts and history in general. Not limited.
- SJS (Small Journal Seminar). Analysis of selected texts; current emphasis is Mencius and other 03c texts. Limit: 12
- CGC (Comparative Government Colloquium). State formation and the role of law in all societies. Limit: 12

Since 2012, when it began to appear, all E-list discussion is considered to be preparatory to publication or other contribution to the Journal.
