ObjectivesThe Commlist is a free (academic) information service to the academic community, and is organised on a voluntary basis. All are welcome to subscribe to this information resource (or not). Its exclusive objective is to disseminate academic information on communication and media studies related conferences, vacancies, and publications.
Posting on the listInformation can be posted on the Commlist by sending it to the list manager, Nico Carpentier at nico.carpentier[at]vub[dot]ac[dot]be. Delays of several days may occur, as postings have to be approved by the list manager (in order to check whether they are in line with the objectives of the mailing list, and the list's guidelines).
Before sending a posting request, please make sure to check that your posting has not been posted before, by checking the mailing list archive.
Please respect the following format requirements:
Subscribing and UnsubscribingPlease use the (UN)SUBCRIPTION FORM
Because of persistent problems with yahoo.com, subscription with a yahoo.com email address is no longer allowed.
The Commlist is an independent project, loosely affiliated with the European Communication Research and Education Association (ECREA). Being subscribed to the Commlist does not automatically result in an ECREA membership. Commlist postings will also not reach the entire ECREA membership.
DisclaimerThe Commlist host institution and the Commlist manager can never be held accountable for the material that is distributed, or for the consequences its distribution may have. The distribution of postings on the mailing list does not guarantee their accuracy or legitimacy. Subscribers to (and readers of) the mailing list are invited to always doublecheck the information (e.g., with the organisers, or editors). All information posted on the list, and all requests for postings are public. Subscribing to the list, or requesting a posting, implies agreement with the mailing list guidelines.
Mailing List Privacy NoticeBy using the commlist, your personal data (email address) may be used by the list manager to manage your membership, support you in using this mailing list, to identify problems or to make the mailing list better.
If you post messages to this mailing list, be aware that any personal data you share within your email (email address, name and signature information) will be visible to others, also in the mailing list archive.
Your email address will continue to be subscribed to the mailing list until you unsubscribe your email address from the mailing list, or contact the mailing list manager at nico.carpentier[at]vub[dot]ac[dot]be (please use the unsubscribe option first). Any email messages you post to the mailing list will remain in the mailing list web-accessible archives, until you explicitly ask the list manager (at nico.carpentier[at]vub[dot]ac[dot]be) to remove these details.
Conflict resolution and Problem SolvingIn case you encounter problems, please contact Commlist's manager Nico Carpentier at nico.carpentier[at]vub[dot]ac[dot]be. In case you have problems unsubscribing, please first carefully check whether you're trying to unsubscribe the correct email address (=the one you've used to subscribe, and not some variation), as this causes 90% of the unsubscription problems.
