<nettime> welcome nettimers to the institute of network cultures

(dear nettimers, with a bit of pride, here it is... /geert)


Introducing the Institute of Network Cultures
Based within the Hogeschool of Amsterdam (HvA)

Founded by Geert Lovink
Producer: Sabine Niederer

The Institute of Network Cultures (INC), which was set up in June 2004, 
caters to research, meetings and (online) initiatives in the area of new 
media and society with a particular focus on the internet.=20

If you are interested in internships, linked events, providing screenings, 
lectures and workshops in Amsterdam, fellowships and collaborative 
research, please contact us.

The INC originates from the =A1lectorate=A2 of the department of Interact= 
ive Media at the Hogeschool van Amsterdam. The media theorist Geert Lovink 
was appointed =A1lector=A2 of this department in January 2004. The purpos= 
e of =A1lectorates=A2 as these, in principle, four year term positions are 
called in Dutch, is to introduce research into the Dutch system of higher 
vocational education, and to enable the development of so-called 
=A1centres of excellence=A2. Within the department of interactive media a= 
t HvA (http://www.interactievemedia.hva.nl/), the responsibilities of the 
lectorate include the provision of traineeships, lectures and the theory 
programme. The INC is also involved in the Media Lab (initiated by the 
Hogeschool and the University of Amsterdam) which started with a BA pilot 
for 18 students in October 2004.=20

The INC is also closely affiliated to the University of Amsterdam, where 
Geert Lovink is working as an associated professor at the department of 
Media & Culture. The University of Amsterdam and the Hogeschool, which 
have merged at a managerial level, are cooperating in many areas. =20
