This query arrived in my inbox just lately, and appears good for a Friday. I feel we are able to perceive “non-academic publications” broadly sufficient to incorporate not simply newspapers, magazines, and on-line publications, but in addition private blogs or web sites, and common and public posts/threads/movies on social media, too.

Readers, please share your information right here. (Self-promotion welcome.)

I’ll begin by mentioning two philosophers I do know of. One is Justin Khoo (MIT), who writes movie evaluations for varied websites. The opposite is Matt Strohl (Montana), who writes about films at his web site (and whose Why It’s OK to Love Unhealthy Films was printed final yr).
