The EASA Media Anthropology Network is well known for its e-seminars which run on our mailing list for a period of two weeks. These moderated sessions have been held since 2004 and they unfold around a working paper presented by a Network participant or guest. E-seminars are free and open to anyone with a genuine interest in the anthropology of media. To participate please subscribe to our mailing list via this page. If you wish to present a paper or suggest a presenter please contact John Postill.

For a complete list of past and forthcoming working papers and e-seminars (including PDF transcripts of both) see below:
