Cyberculture on LISTPROC@CMHC.COM
Cyberculture - Discussion of the implications of
subjectivity and community in cyberspace 

We are all dwelling in cyberspace, coursing through the 
wires, becoming cyborg and becoming human, alone at the 
keyboard, together online. We are subjects of a realm 
which offers new ways of envisioning Self and Other(s), 
and where a global cyberculture is in the process of 
creation. Cyberculture is devoted to an examination of 
the new subjectivities and collectivities that are 
emerging. We are interested in the cultural, political, 
philosophical and psychological issues engendered, on 
all levels of the social.

The Cyberculture email list is not a community-forming 
enterprise as such, but a place to discuss culture and 
community online. The list will remain focused on these 
topics; it will also be a clearing-house for work-in-
progress, calls for papers, and so forth.

Some issues that may be relevant:

* the formation (or ad hoc re-constitution) and functioning 
  of online communities, such as Quake Clans or MUD/Usenet/
  e-mail groups;
* the place of the political in online communities and 
  the functioning of power online;
* work on sex, gender, race, sexual behaviour in relation 
  to online (virtual) subjectivity;
* the implications of symbolic and technological extensions 
  of the human (cyborg, android theory, etc.);
* financing the Net, the production of the Net consumer, 
   and so forth;
* the social implications of computer interfaces and 
  operating systems - in other words, the role of the 
  apparatus in online behavior and community;
* and the interactions between online and offline culture 
  (how social/cultural ideas shape online and offline 

This will be a relatively open list - posts on all aspects 
of cyberculture will be welcomed. We stress, however, that 
our intent is to explore these issues in the broadest sense, 
within a focused, substantial discussion, with a minimum 
of distraction.

One concern we hope to address is the way in which much 
theoretical work on cyberspace to date reflects an 
exclusive, hegemonic bias, thus foreclosing some of the 
most interesting and radical possibilities for the
development of cyberculture. We plan to challenge 
ourselves and the list members to integrate issues of 
race, gender, class and multiculturalism in our 
examinations and theories of cyberspace.

Europsych on majordomo@human-nature.net
Email forum on European Psychotherapy - 
East and West

Europsych is concerned to foster exchange of information 
about psychotherapy in Europe - East and West. We hope 
that subscribers will share information about 
psychotherapy facilities, training and research in
their countries so that others can be better informed 
and so that ideas, writings and expertise can be shared.

Practitioners of  all approaches to psychotherapy are 
welcome, and subscribers to the list are expected to 
relate constructively (or silently) to approaches other 
than their own. 'All' includes psychodynamic, behavioural, 
brief, solution-focussed, gestalt, etc, as well as group
therapy, art psychotherappy, drama therapy, dance therapy, etc.

It is hoped that people who join the list and are in a 
position to do so should sketch the situation in their 
country - numbers of practitioners and approaches, trainings, 
provision for payment, institutional and intellectual 
issues and whatever other topics may seem relevant and 

A particularly interesting topic is the situation and 
development of psychotherapy in Eastern Europe and 
possibilities for mutual support, exchanges and the 
development of distance learning projects.

object-relations on majordomo@human-nature.net
Object Relations in Psychoanalysis

It would be a pity to predetermine the scope and 
emphases of this forum, but its inspiration is an 
interest in Klein, Bion, Post-Kleinians, Winnicott, 
Fairbairn, Guntrip and other and more recent writers 
in the object relations tradition within psychoanalysis. 
There is an existing list on Bion and there is an 
object relations web site, but there is no forum or
web site specifically dedicated to this particular stratum 
of psychoanalytic theory. This forum and its associated 
web site are designed to fill this void.

Any topic within the broad domain mentioned above is welcome.  
In addition to theoretical, clinical and historical issues, 
we are particularly interested in encouraging applications 
to the object relations tradition to literature, film and 
other aspects of culture, cultural studies, groups, 
institutions and politics. Interventions aimed at mounting
critiques of this tradition, broadly conceived, are also 
welcome. However, civility must be the norm.
