The most recent scholarship on mail art as network art (net art) comes from Kornelia Röder of Staatliches Museum Schwerin, Germany. This translated summary of her dissertation (book) is a very effective argumentation: Kornelia Röder Schriftenreihe für Künstlerpublikationen, Volume 5 ... I had the very good fortune of meeting Kornelia Röder at the College Art Association conference last month. Her talk was part of a panel chaired by Stephen D. Perkins. The panel included Michael Crane, Simon Anderson and Craig Saper.
