Listed below are some email discussion lists focused on particular areas of cultural activity which you may be interested in.

Often the only way to find out whether or not a discussion list is suitable for your needs is to subscribe and 'lurk' (read others' postings without replying or emailing a posting of your own) for a few weeks until you get a feel for the type of discussions and information posted to the list. Some lists also present their email postings on the Web and, where possible, we have included links to those Web addresses below with the information about the discussion lists.
