Subject: Deadline Extension for "Online Lives": A _Biography_
Special Issue to 9/15
Extension of Deadline for Call for Articles: A _Biography_ Special Issue
Due to a number of recent enquiries, and some adjustments in production
schedules, the deadline for the Winter 2003 issue of _Biography_ has been
extended to SEPTEMBER 16, 2002.
This issue 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.
