Folks, as part of an upcoming conference presentation proposal, I've posted on the Social Science Research Network a review of five recent works "From the Digital Divide to Digital Inclusion and Beyond: Update on Telecentres and Community Technology Centers (CTCs)."  

Based on a critical inclusion perspective suggested in a paper by David Nemer, the review illustrates the transformative, liberating, radical democratic, community-building dimensions and character of both the institutions and the authors' research and covers:
* Ricardo Gomez, ed., "Telecentres, Cybercafes and Public Access to ICT: International Comparisons" (2012) 
* Panayiota Tsatsou's "Digital Divides in Europe — Culture, Politics and the Western-Southern Divide" (2011)
* Christian Sandvig's "Connection at Ewiiaapaayp Mountain: Indigenous Internet Infrastructure" (2012)
* Virginia Eubanks' "Digital Dead End: Fighting for Social Justice in the Information Age" (2011)
* Melissa Gilbert and Michele Masucci's "ICT Geographies: Strategies for Bridging the Digital Divide" (2011)

A fuller abstract and this "Beyond Inclusion" essay can be found at http://ssrn.com/abstract=2241167 -- feedback welcome.
