On occasion, two or more participants in Culture Digitally are invited to engage in an intellectual back-and-forth, on a theoretical point of interest that emerges from discussions at our meetings, around blog posts, or based on evident shared interests. In these “dialogues” they are encouraged to grapple with theoretical questions, but to do so quite a bit faster than the glacial pace of publishing typically allows. Imagine them as the digital equivalent of the scholarly exchange of letters between pre-eminent gentlemen (sic) scientists. The thinking is meant to be raw and provocative, a chance for the dialogue participants to prod each other beyond their own certainties.
