What to expect from an LSA Newsletter

LSA produces three electronic issues per year of the LSA Newsletter, circulated in March,  July and November.  

The newsletter strives to reflect in each issue the broad range of interests of LSA members.

All Members are invited to submit reports, announcements of events and book reviews.

Stefan Lawrence (Southampton Solent University) is General Editor of the LSA Newsletter.

Guest Editors also contribute to the production of each issue by providing or organising features on specially focused themes. If you are interested in guest editing please contact Stefan Lawrence who will be happy to discuss a theme for upcoming editions.

LSA Individual Members receive one e-Copy per issue and annual LSA Membership, which may begin at any time during the year, will always include three issues of the LSA Newsletter.


LSA Newsletter issues typically include: 
  • LSA member news items and information -- including, especially, the current year's LSA conference details and announcement and call for papers for the following year's event 
  • feature articles --- some produced especially for the issue by invitation from the issue editor/s -- and some reproduced by permission from external sources 
  • sneak preview chapters from recent and forthcoming LSA Publications volumes 
  • conference reports 
  • book reviews 
  • LSA Membership Directory - contact addresses (postal and e-mail) for Members of the Association, UK and around the world 
The LSA Newsletter publishes the dissertations of the annual winners of the Associations Undergraduate and Postgraduate Dissertation Prizes As a service to Members, the Newsletter also circulates loose enclosures such as book announcements and conference response forms which have been provided by Members. Non members may enquire about newsletter enclosures at a small fee based on the weight of the enclosure.
