This is a doctoral research seminar available to doctoral students at the University of Oxford and Internet Interdisciplinary Institute, conducted on-line through the virtual campus of the Open University of Catalonia. The seminar will be conducted over a period of 8 weeks, from 13 October to 7 December 2008 . Each week one topic will be presented and discussed as per the program of the seminar. At the beginning of each week a lecture prepared by the instructors will be posted, supported by readings available on-line. During the week there will be a online discussion and debate on the topic among the studen ts and faculty engaged in the seminar.
