About the workshop

James Slevin was one of the first scholars to publish a book that tries to embrace most of the aspects of the Internet: The Internet and Society (Polity 2000).

In this workshop we are going to take a closer look at a few of the positions presented in his work in order to initiate a hopefully fruitful discussion of the Internet, one of the most important contemporary media.

The workshop is open to everyone (preferably scholars), but the number of participants is limited to app. 25.

Fee: 150,00 DKR (lunch + 2 x cofee).
Please sign up at bep@imv.au.dk (first come, first serve).
Deadline for signing up: October 22nd 2001, 12:00
