Hi Esther

Steven Clift's work using email lists in the context of eDemocracy is worth looking at and well-documented


The email groups (local issues forums) are known as democracies online http://forums.e-democracy.org/projects/know/dowire/

And here's a useful paper on the early email incarnation
Dahlberg, L. (2001). Extending the Public Sphere through Cyberspace: The Case of Minnesota E-Democracy. First Monday. 6 (3).  http://firstmonday.org/ojs/index.php/fm/article/view/838/747

I hope this seems relevant to you -it's quite important in the history of democracy and eParticipation.
