Slover Linett's e-newsletter about audiences and culture—from the arts to informal science learning.


All of us at Slover Linett are thrilled to be able to start the new year with a new website and this accompanying newsletter.

We're grateful for the patience you've all shown while we've kept a ridiculously low profile on the Web, and we hope our new online resources are useful to you. We especially invite you to participate in CultureQ, a professional dialogue sparked by a single question each month. Its value will be proportional to how many of you contribute your opinions, so jump in!

And of course we're eager to hear your thoughts about any aspect of the site. (We're researchers — we're all about feedback.)

Meanwhile, here's hoping your New Year starts off bright...and stays that way.
