** via Media Anthropology Network mailing list **
Welcome to our e-workshop on digital and media anthropology!
As I said in a previous announcement, we thought it would be interesting to continue on this mailing list the face-to-face conversations we had during the recent EASA conference in Maynooth (Ireland). So from now until Tuesday 12 Oct we?ll be holding an informal e-workshop right here on some of the key questions arising from both sessions. The idea is not so much to review what was said and omitted in Maynooth but rather to take some of the questions that were left hanging in the air at the conference and use them as a way of thinking collaboratively about issues of interest to people on this list.
I?ve stumpled upon a rather new Open Access Journal called Practical Matters. This publication of Emory University is both interdisciplinary and ?intermedia”, i.e. multimedia.
Writing in the Atlantic, my friend Biella Coleman, an assistant professor at NYU, describes the syllabus for her wonderful Anthropology of Hackers class. I met Biella when she was doing her fieldwork, part of which involved volunteering at and interviewing the staff and supporters of the Electronic Frontier Foundation.
