I offer you all a simple solution to the angst that various forms of listerv posting seems to produce: go to the JISC site you used to sign up and change your settings to 'digest.'. You'll get one email a day, and perhaps we can collectively move on.

However, since the issue began circulating many months ago, I have been confused as to why requests for articles to the forum cannot be simply ignored if they are not to the readers liking. I understand that members might have issues with the concept of what such a forum 'should' be used for, but as discussion seems to have got us nowhere, perhaps simply ignoring requests which do not interest you is the answer. I personally do not have a problem with requests for papers, but also ignore them when I feel I might not be of any help. Of course, as a PhD student I may be subject to a lot less volume of daily mail in general that other subscribers, but still feel that a few request emails a fortnight does not constitute a particular issue.

> I agree with Matt on this.  I've been on crit-geog for about 8 years, and the volume of crit-geog email is seldom excessive, usually in high-single figures per day.  Occasionally a topic 'takes off' and we get 30 or more a day; however, so long as the subject heading is kept, we can just delete all relating to a topic we don't want to get into.
> 
> As for articles being available elsewhere, I still don't see a problem with also fishing in the crit-geog pool as a parrallel sourcing method.  Can be a lot quicker than spending a couple of hours trawling other Internet sources, for a readable / downloadable / printable version that doesn't just give the abstract only.

However, since the issue began circulating many months ago, I have been confused as to why requests for articles to the forum cannot be simply ignored if they are not to the readers liking. I understand that members might have issues with the concept of what such a forum 'should' be used for, but as discussion seems to have got us nowhere, perhaps simply ignoring requests which do not interest you is the answer. I personally do not have a problem with requests for papers, but also ignore them when I feel I might not be of any help. Of course, as a PhD student I may be subject to a lot less volume of daily mail in general that other subscribers, but still feel that a few request emails a fortnight does not constitute a particular issue.

> Subject: Recruiting to a fully funded AHRC Collaborative Doctoral Award, based at Newcastle University UK, in partnership with with Cittaslow (slow cities) UK!
> 
> AHRC Collaborative Doctoral Award (PhD)
> 
> Realising the potential of co-creation in the convivial politics of Cittaslow (slow cities) UK
> 
> Supervisors: Dr Helen Jarvis (Reader in Social Geography), Ms Georgia Giannopoulou (architect and urban designer), in partnership with Cittaslow (Slow Cities) UK.
> 
> Sponsor: AHRC 
> Duration of the award: 3 year PhD
> 
> 
> Project description: 
> The project will critically analyse the concept of co-creation which remains under-developed in existing academic literature. Co-creation can be understood along similar lines to co-inquiry strategies which are gaining popularity in the specific field of public service delivery as a means of cultivating equal and reciprocal relationships between service users and service providers. The project translates this concept to social and cultural situations where the object of 'reimagining' is not a product or public service- but in effect an alternative way of life.   The main objective is to investigate the poorly understood characteristics of civic engagement in small towns and cities where the concern is to improve the quality of life of all citizens, focusing on the landscape and cultural practices of heritage and hospitality. 
> 
> Cittaslow was established in Italy in 1999 as an ambitious 'sustainable communities' spin-off from the popular Slow Food movement. It operates through localised interventions that are loosely held within a transnational movement (145 towns across 23 countries). Cittaslow UK was established in 2004: there are currently six member towns. The research involves immersive participatory methods, working with two member towns and four projects/activities. 
> 
> Value of the Award and Eligibility: The studentship will cover the cost of tuition fees for home or EU students, plus an annual maintenance award for home students (£14,140 in 2011-12). The studentship is tenable from September 2012 for up to three years (full-time), subject to academic progression. Students must also meet the AHRC's requirements for UK residence. Candidates from other EU countries may be eligible for a fees-only studentship.  
> 
> Person specification
> Candidates will normally be expected to have a good first degree in a relevant discipline (arts/humanities/social science) and a Masters degree with basic grounding in qualitative (participatory) research methods.  Applicants must demonstrate interdisciplinary scholarship and a willingness to learn and develop new techniques. 
> 
> How to Apply 
> You must complete the University's postgraduate application form, quoting reference number GPS99. Only mandatory fields need to be completed (no personal statement required) but you must attach a copy of your CV and a covering letter which outlines relevant skills and commitment to a collaborative PhD, working alongside Cittaslow UK (500 words maximum). 
> 
> 
> The closing date for application is Friday 6th July. Interviews will take place late July 2012.
