For Readers

Beyond the material we publish, The Electric Agora is a forum for high-quality discussion.

Comments on posts will remain open for 10 days.

We view the comment threads on this site as a kind of digital colloquium; a place for professionals to interact with aspiring scholars and independent thinkers. As a result, we will require commentators to register with the Editors and provide us with your email address. We also implement a moderation policy that reflects the way that colloquia are moderated.  This involves rejecting comments that are:

  • Uncivil
  • Off-topic
  • Repetitive
  • Ignore the replies of their interlocutors
  • Dismissive of expert-opinion (disagreement, of course, is not only allowed but expected).

Happy commenting!
