About dancecult and dancecult-l
Dancecult is a forum for the electronic dance music culture (EDMC) research network, whose doors opened in April, 2005. Presently, Dancecult manifests as a mailing list and rich informational website.
With around 180 members (and growing) worldwide, Dancecult-l is an interdisciplinary mailing list for graduate students, scholars, and other parties interested in the study and documentation of EDMCs from proto-disco through post-rave formations.
As a critical information exchange hub, Dancecult-l enables resource sharing and collaboration between international researchers of club cultures, raves, techno, electronica, doof, digital arts and other manifestations of EDMC. Members come from various different disciplines, operating in many different global locations, and employing diverse methodologies.
The web incarnation of Dancecult arose from conversations between scholars Graham St. John (who had the vision for the online bibliography) and Eliot Bates (who designed and implemented the site).
