> I am delighted to inform you about the posting of the inaugural issue of

> Please visit http://www.flusserstudies.net
> About flusserstudies.net
> Flusser Studies is an international e-journal for academic research
> dedicated to the thought of Vilem Flusser (1920-1991). In addition to
> publishing articles about Flusser92s work, the journal seeks to promote
> scholarship on different aspects of specifically interdisciplinary and
> multilingual approaches Flusser himself developed in the course of his
> career as a writer and philosopher. These approaches range from
> Communication Theory to Translation Studies, Cultural Anthropology to the
> New Media.
> Flusser wrote his texts in different languages, translating himself over
> and over again, moving from English, to Portuguese, German, French and
> back again. Similarly he worked by juxtaposing and contaminating
> different discourses: philosophy, anthropology, communication theory, art
> and design, zoology to mention only a few.
> Among his most original contributions in this context are his
> philosophical fictions - above all Vampyroteuthis infernalis - scientific
> fables on the borderline of literature, science and philosophy.
> Flusser Studies is published twice a year. Publication languages include
> English, German, French, Brazilian and Czech. Some editions will be
> dedicated to a specific area of research.

> A note from a the editor:
> Flusser Studies is a new online journal that seeks to support research on
> and with the theories and works of Vilem Flusser (more information on the
> philosopher, writer, cultural historian VF on the site itself).
> I co-founded the journal with Rainer Guldin (Universita della Svizzera
> Italiana, Lugano) and am serving as associate editor, and I would be most
> grateful if you could send the link to those friends and colleagues of
> yours who might be interested in reading or contributing to the journal.
> The next issue, due in May, will publish general submissions, but the
> November 2006 issue will focus on Flusser and Brazil, and the May 2007
> issue will focus on Flusser and the Czech Republic.
> I am happy to answer any questions you may have, of course.
> Thank you and with best wishes,
