Subject: New issue of M/C now available

  The Media and Cultural Studies Centre at the University of Queensland
     is proud to present issue two in volume two of the award-winning

                  M/C - A Journal of Media and Culture

M/C is an award-winning journal that crosses over between the popular and
the academic. It is attempting to engage with the 'popular', and integrate
the work of 'scholarship' in media and cultural studies into our critical
work. We take seriously the need to move ideas outward, so that our
cultural debates may have some resonance with wider political and cultural

It doesn't take much to see that human history is full of invasions, from
military invasions to other, sometimes no less tragic contexts: virus
invasions which threaten millions of lives, or metaphorically invasions by
computer viruses wreaking their form of electronic havoc, as well as
invasions of culture through the modern media which may also severely
affect whole societies. Conversely, invasive surgery is now a standard tool
to save people's lives, just as invasive interventions by the international
community are sometimes seen as the only way to stop a country's descent
into anarchy. In the second issue of M/C this year, we consider these and
other aspects of 'invasion' -- here are the articles on offer:

  "Invading the Ivory Tower: Hypertext and the New Dilletante Scholars"
Axel Bruns examines the implications that our increasing use of the Web to
disseminate information may have for academic discussion and research,
predicting a growing influx of self-trained scholars that may seriously
affect traditional academic hierarchies.

  "Shooting Baywatch: Resisting Cultural Invasion"
Felicity Meakins examines media and community reactions to the threat of
having the television series Baywatch shot on Australian beaches, looking
looks at the cultural cringe that has surrounded the relationship between
Australia and America over the years and is manifested by our response to
American accents in the media.

  "Screen II: The Invasion of the Attention Snatchers"
Paul Mc Cormack considers how the television has irreversibly invaded our
lives and claimed a dominant place in the domestic sphere. Recently, the
(Internet-connected) personal computer has begun a similar invasion: what
space will it eventually claim?

  "Is Sustainable Tourism Really Sustainable? Protecting the Icon in the
   Commodity at Sites of Invasion"
Sandra Brunet explores the often forgotten Kangaroo Island off the coast of
South Australia, examining the ways in which the image of the island is
constructed by the government and media for eco-tourism and how faithful
this representation is to the farmers, fishermen and other inhabitants of
the island.

  "A Decolonising Doctor? British SF Invasion Narratives"
Nick Caldwell investigates some of the implications of the "Britishness" of
the cult television series Doctor Who, where insularity and cultural
authority are taken to extremes during the ubiquitous intergalactic

  "Special Effects and the Invasive Camera: Enemy of the State and The
Paul Starr considers at the troubled relationship between cutting-edge
special effects in Hollywood action movies and the surveillance
technologies that recent movies such as Enemy of the State show as tools in
government conspiracies. The depiction of high-tech gadgetry as 'cool' and
'evil' at the same time, he writes, leads to a collapse of meaning.

                             And introducing

               M/C Reviews - An ongoing series of reviews
                   of events in culture and the media.

M/C Reviews is a companion piece to the M/C journal itself. Publication on
the Internet gives us the freedom to keep its link to M/C proper ambiguous:
M/C Reviews is neither simply a sub-section of M/C, nor completely
independent of it; you, the reader, decide how you want to see it. The
reviews are informed by the culture-critical perspective of M/C, but you
don't need to take notice of this fact; if you do, however, you'll find
that they tie in to some of the debates represented in greater length in
M/C. New articles are continually added to M/C Reviews.

Recent reviews include:

Felicity Meakins: "Smug Grins from the Experts: 'Language and Society'"
Shane Lewis:      "What Tangled Webs: 'A Simple Plan'/'Very Bad Things'"
Shane Lewis:      "Norm Storms Warm Form: 'Psycho'"
Axel Bruns:       "A Visit from the Timminses: Cowboy Junkies in Brisbane"
Kirsty Leishman:  "No Express to Marrakesh: 'Hideous Kinky'"
Axel Bruns:       "Dark and Subtle: Morte Macabre's 'Symphonic Holocaust'"
Shane Lewis:      "Special Combination: 'Rush Hour'"
Shane Lewis:      "Toying with Victims: 'Bride of Chucky'/'Clay Pigeons'"

Subject: Upcoming Speaking Digital Symposium on Cyberfeminism and Net Culture

Speaking Digital
Interrogating Difference: Cyberfeminism and Net Culture

Tuesday, March 30, 1999
7:00 p.m.

Peter B. Lewis Theater
Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum
1071 Fifth Avenue
New York, NY

This fourth symposium in the Speaking Digital series will bring together
cultural critics, filmmakers, and theorists to address the relationship
between gender and technology, and to examine issues of difference,
notions of community, and forms of representation in cyberspace.
Exploring the myth that gender or sexual identity does not matter in the
decentralized domain of  the Internet--in which access to technological
resources equals power--these speakers will also examine alternative
forms of representation and empowerment in the new terrain of
cyberspace, as well as the implications in this for the visual arts.

This panel is co-organized by Nancy Spector, Curator of Contemporary
Art, and J. Fiona Ragheb, Associate Curator for Collections and Exhibitions.

KAREN A. FRENKEL is a filmmaker and journalist specializing in high
technology who has written extensively on such subjects as artificial
intelligence, interactive multimedia, databases and the human genome
project, and women in computing.  The former technology and culture
columnist for CyberTimes, The New York Times on the web, she is also the
co-author with Isaac Asimov of _Robots: Machines in Man's Image_ (1985).
 Frenkel was the creator, writer, and executive producer of _Minerva's
Machine: Women and Computing_ (1995), an award-winning documentary that
investigates the place of women in computing and explores gender
differences in response to high technology.  She is currently at work on
her second documentary, _Net.LEARNING_, which she is directing,
co-writing, and executive producing in conjunction with the Alfred P.
Sloan Foundation.

ALONDRA NELSON is a Ph.D. candidate in the American Studies Program at
New York University.  She writes and teaches on the topics of race,
gender and modernity; science, technology and culture; and 20th-century
popular culture.  She is the moderator of AfroFuturism | List, an email
forum that explores futurist themes, sci-fi imagery and technological
innovation in African diasporic cultural production.  She is currently
co-editing _Techni*Color: Race and Technology in Daily Life_,
forthcoming from NYU Press.

THYRZA GOODEVE NICHOLS is currently Senior Instructor at the Whitney
Museum Independent Study Program.  She has published essays and
interviews on art and technoculture in _Art in America_, _Artbyte_,
_Artforum_, _Guggenheim_ magazine, _Leonardo_, and _Parkett_. Her most
recent project is _How Like A Leaf_, a book-length interview with Donna
J. Haraway, forthcoming this fall from Routledge.

THUY LINH TU is a Ph.D. candidate in the American Studies Program at New
York University.  She teaches and writes about contemporary Asian
American popular culture, primarily as it intersects with a larger
technoculture.  In particular, she is interested in the various
relationships racialized communities have to the production and
consumption of modern technologies in their work, play, and cultural
expression.   She is currently co-editing _Techni*Color: Race and
Technology in Daily Life_, forthcoming from NYU Press.

Tickets are $10 for non-members, $7 for members, students, and seniors.

Speaking Digital is a quarterly series of public dialogues on the
creative possibilities of digital technology.  This symposium in the
Speaking Digital series is generously sponsored by Samsung as part of
its ongoing support of the Guggenheim Museum.  For more information,

Subject:  Help B92 Campaign!

Dear Friends,

As you will all know, the airstrikes on Yugoslavia have begun.  One of the
outcomes of this war situation is the closure of Yugoslavia's most
important independent media entity, radio station B92.  Please help us to
ensure that our friends at B92 continue to be heard during this most
difficult time, by distributing this press realase as widely as you can.
apologise to those who receive this message more than once.

International support is very much needed at this time, and will be greatly
appreciated by everyone involved in this crisis.

Best regards

Amsterdam - March 24th 1999

Help B92 and the independent media in Yugoslavia Latest news at

Last night the transmitter of radio B92 from Belgrade was confiscated by
the Serbian authorities. The editor-in-chief, Veran Matic, was held in
custody in a police station for well over 8 hours. Despite this
intimidation the station continues its independent news service. At De
Balie in Amsterdam a support group has been founded tonight, which intends
to support B92 and other independent media in Yugoslavia where possible in
the continuation of their important news service.

With the support of internetprovider XS4ALL B92 also transmits its signals
via internet since december 1996. These digital broadcasts are picked up by
the BBC Worldservice and retransmitted via satellite. Through a network of
local radio stations the programs of B92 can be heard throughout Serbia,
despite repeated attempts by the authorities to silence the station. At
this moment it is still possible to follow the broadcasts of Radio B92 in
real audio on their website, at

In light of the current tense situation it is very likely that the
possibilities of B92 to continue its independent news service will be
limited even further. The support group therefore intends to take measures
to distribute news by and about B92 from Amsterdam. For that purpose a
special website has been opened at

B92 is the backbone of the independent news service in Yugoslavia. Without
immediate financial support this last source of independent news for the
inhabitants of this region is endangered. A fundraising campaign is being
started by the support group, in order to send money and equipment to B92
and other independent radio stations in Serbia and Kosovo as soon as

The founders of the support group are: B92, De Balie, De Digitale Stad,
Next 5 Minutes, Press Now, radioqualia (Australia), De Waag (MONM) en

The Postbank account for donations is 7676, made payable to Press Now in
Amsterdam, please specify "Help B92".

You can also digitally support this initiative by copying the special logo
