reader-list -- A list on Media and the City, Information Politics and Contemporary Culture


About reader-list
English (USA)

The Reader List partly serves as a platform to create a lively community that discusses and debates key issues in new & old media practice and theory and reflects on the experience of the everyday, as well as technology, culture and politics in city spaces.

The Sarai Reader's concern with the theme of the Public Domain means that the list is especially open to reflections on what is the nature of a free public space in our cities, and in our various practices, and what it might come to mean. The people who often post on the list include social theorists, activists, filmmakers, telecommunications engineers, artists and software programmers.

Code of Conduct for discussions on the list:

1) no person, whosoever they may be should make any allegations on the personal conduct of another list member or any other third person, without offering proof for the same. Should this proof be found wanting, they should apologize.

2) that people voluntarily agree to refrain from making sexist and homophobic remarks or use racist language of any kind.

On 3 infringement of these the person's list subscription will be terminated.
