Subject: "Online Lives": A _Biography_ Special Issue
Call for Articles: A _Biography_ Special Issue
The Winter 2003 issue of _Biography_ will feature critical essays on how
auto/biography and other forms of life writing are engaging the Internet,
hypertext, digital multimedia, and the immersive interactive environments of
MOOs, virtual worlds, and role-playing games. Guest editor John Zuern seeks
contributions that address topics such as personal home pages, online
diaries and web logs, web-based genealogical research and family histories,
the stability and/or flux of identity in virtual communities, and the
creative use of webcams and other surveillance and tracking technologies for
self-representation. Interdisciplinary and multicultural approaches, as well
as explorations of the theoretical, methodological, and ethical challenges
of studying online lives are particularly encouraged.
TO SUBMIT: Manuscripts should be double spaced and ideally between 3,000 and
10,000 words. A double-blind submission policy will be followed; the
authors name should not appear anywhere on the manuscript, but an
accompanying cover letter should contain the authors name and address.
Consultation on manuscript ideas is welcomed.
Deadline for receipt of entries: September 1, 2002.
