Dear YASMINers,

We would like to announce that YASMIN is now moving on to phase [3]. We
started YASMIN in 2005 as a network of artists, scientists, engineers,
theoreticians and institutions promoting collaboration in art, science
and technology around the Mediterranean Rim and beyond. In its first
phase (2005-2009), YASMIN was an online forum with an announcements and
a discussions part. Then we moved to phase [2] (2009 ? 2017) where
YASMIN became a (mailman-based) mailing list consisting of a
YASMIN_announements and a YASMIN_discussions sub-list.

For various reasons of improving the functionality and robustness of our
system, we are now moving YASMIN to a new server and entering phase [3].
The lists will continue to function as they were and there is no need
for all subscribers to re-subscribe, as we have already done this for
you. However, we are still developing the new interface as well as the
archives of phase [1], phase [2] and current messages of phase [3]. We
need some more time for that and we will inform you when these are
ready.

For now, let?s start communicating again through YASMIN and Roger Malina
with Alyce Santoro have prepared a fascinating discussion subject to
start the new phase in the best possible manner. You will receive
relevant info very soon.

Please remember that YASMIN is above all a community and a project
supported by the voluntary work of all participating in it (artists,
academics, moderators, developers, etc.)

Best wishes
The YASMIN team of moderators
Roger Malina, Dimitris Charitos, Nina Czegledy, Pau Alsina, Monica
Bello, Ricardo Mbarkho, Guillermo Munoz Matutano, Houssine Soussi,

YASMINERS

we have good news, thanks to the hard work of Dimitris Charitos the list is now
up again on the cloud and we are pleased to announce the promised discussion
on Science for the People: Radical Science for the 21st Century.

The discussion will be moderated by Alyce Santoro and myself.

the science for the people organisation just held a convention

https://scienceforthepeople.org/index.php/national-convention/

if you attended we encourage you to tell us about it

Alyce and Roger

Science for the People: Radical Science for the 21st Century.

SUMMARY:



In the late 1960s through late 1980s, scientists unwilling to
contribute to the development of technologies that pollute, oppress,
and destroy, or to research tainted by military, political, and
corporate interests, were organizing around the questions ?Why are we
scientists? For whose benefit do we serve? What is the full measure of
our moral and social responsibility??. Members of Science for the
People (SftP) (sometimes referred to more generally as ?the radical
science movement?) were dedicated to crafting a science that is
ethical, egalitarian, and cooperative, and were committed in their own
work to research that above all serves the health of humans and the
environment.



Science for the People is currently being revitalized by scientists
and scholars on college campuses across the US. Science for the
People: Documents from America?s Movement of Radical Scientists, a
brand new anthology of historical material, is fresh off the presses.
The second annual SftP National Convention took place at the
University of Michigan from February 2-4, 2017.



A bit more background:



Don't Just Defend Science, Mobilize It for the People: While science
is under attack, it could be an opportunity to advance a much stronger
vision of how it can serve the common good, writes Sigrid Schmalzer:



Which Way for Science? A statement by the SftP editorial team on the
occasion of the April 2017 March for Science

For information



YASMIN POLICY

NETIQUETTE RULES

No HTML, no attachments TXT ONLY emails

The information or discussion in the posts should be relevant to the
Mediterranean Area and the field of Art, Science and Technology
The official language of the Yasmin list is English. However, posts in
other languages mastered by the moderators are allowed as long as a
summary of the post in English is provided. Those languages are
currently: Arabic, Catalan, French, Greek, Hebrew, Italian,
Portuguese, Spanish, and Turkish
The list is moderated
Meaningful discussions require courtesy and mutual respect

SUBSCRIPTION POLICY

Each new subscriber is strongly invited to introduce him/herself to
the list and describe his/her activities
Subscription of new members has to be approved by the moderators
Subscriptions may be terminated or suspended in the case of persistent
violation of netiquette
The list archives are publicly available, so Yasmin list can also be
consulted and followed by people who are not subscribed



Lessons Learned



Whenever possible, the discussion goes better if the posts address
one point or at most two,
Posts should be ?short?: 2-3 paragraphs max
The organiser of the discussion ?manages? the central topic being
discussed at a given time( otherwise the discussion goes into multiple
direction and tends to dissipate).
The moderators are tasked with addressing problems such as making sure
spam doesnt get into the discussion I ideally one of the organisers
acts as a moderator to decide which post is approved immediately,
which are deferred to keep the discussion at a given time running its
course.
Best not to approve more than 1-2 posts a day. Otherwise most
yasminers will disconnect,
Moderators over the years have had to block certain posts after
discussion with the person posting, because the topic had little
connection with the discussion under way, or was basically a personal
marketing promotion rather than engaging in discussion. The moderators
can block a post for ?reason? but must notify the other moderators and
the person posting that the post has been blocked. In some cases there
are culturally awkward discussions which are difficult to do on line,
and easier face to face.

Dear YASMIN subscribers,

You have probably received an automated message from the YASMIN_discussions
list (message pasted below)

The reason for this is that we are porting YASMIN to a new system and we are
entering your subscriptions to this new system automatically, so that you do
not need to subscribe again to the new version of YASMIN.

So we would like to inform you of this change and that you do not need to do
anything to continue being a member of the YASMIN discussions list. The
message that you previously received has informed you of the status of your
subscription in the new version of the YASMIN discussions list.

Simply because of this process of porting the list to a new system, the list
has not functioned for these last few weeks.

Please bear with us for a few more days and we will inform you when you can
begin using the list again, as soon as we complete the current test phase.


Best wishes
Dimitris Charitos

[Yasmin_discussions] Announcing YASMIN Science for the People and for the Planet

Yasminers

This is Roger Malina , in Paris not far from the Mediterranean,
moderating the yasmin lists
this week.

As the calendar year comes to a close we wish everyone warmth

The YASMIN moderators are pleased to announce a January discussion on
the Yasmin Discussion list

http://estia.media.uoa.gr/yasmin/index.html

The discussion will be led by Alyce Santoro (http://alycesantoro.com/
), with a number of invited respondents. All Yasminers are
welcome to join in.

The discussion is tentatively titled: Science for the People and the Planet.

As is being discussed in the STEM to STEAM groups, one of the ideas
that feeds in is the idea
that Science itself needs redesigning. Both the scientific method and
the social embedding of science
need rethinking and re designing for the 21st century. In a context
that recognizes that the crisis of
the anthropocene.

Here is Alyce's intro for the discussion that will begin January 9th


Hi so many exciting developments in preparation for the discussion…I
can hardly wait for it to begin! Here's a quick introductory blurb:

The Science for the People (SftP) movement that began in the late
1960s as part of anti-war efforts, then dissipated in the late 1980s,
is now being revitalized. The original group, consisting mostly of
scientists, were dedicated to crafting a science that is ethical,
egalitarian, and cooperative, and were committed in their own work to
research that above all serves the health of humans and
the environment. The new incarnation includes scientists as well as
historians and theorists. As interdisciplinary, socially-conscious
practitioners, many of us may be asking ourselves similar questions
to those currently being raised within the context of SftP:
Are we responsible for examining our work from an ethical standpoint?
What ends/whom do our efforts serve?
Members of the original group and organizers in the current movement
are looking forward to joining us in a YASMIN discussion
on these questions and more, to begin on January 9.

Background on the history of the movement: http://science-for-the-people.org/
Information on current SftP activities: https://scienceforthepeople.org/about/

Looking forward,
Alyce Santoro
alycesantoro.com

Alyce Santoro is an intermedia conceptual/sound artist with a
background in biology and scientific illustration. Beginning her
career intending to make visible the invisible wonders of science and
nature, she quickly became interested in exploring the cultural
phenomenon that causes these fields to be viewed as separate, and in
the ways that social imaginaries form and can shift.

Santoro refers to many of her multimedia works as philosoprops –
devices intended to be used (or at least imagine being used) to
demonstrate a concept, catalyze an action, challenge perception, or
spark a dialog. The philosoprops offer subtle and sometimes
deceivingly playful critiques of the foibles of highly literal,
logical, objective, and compartmentalized thinking.

While a philosoprop may have a tangible component, the most important
part is the concept...which is freely and easily distributable.
Ownership of a philosoprop occurs if and when a person chooses to
adopt or embellish upon the idea; the artifacts are secondary.

Santoro's visual and sound pieces have appeared in over 50 exhibitions
internationally related to innovative textiles; experimental musical
scores; sound and listening; and social action and ecology. Her
written works have appeared in Leonardo Music Journal, the Center for
Sustainable Practice in the Arts Journal, Antennae, Waging
Nonviolence, and Truth-out. She is the author of Philosoprops: A
Unified Field Guide, a catalog of her work/an exegesis on the ways
that thought – and the phenomena that spark it – shapes culture.
