Session 7: Community

10/18/07
How do we define community in the Internet era?

  • Readings
    • Jankowski, N. (2006). Creating community with media: History, theories, and scientific investigations. In L. Lievrouw & S. Livingstone (Eds.), The Handbook of New Media, Updated Student Edition (55-74). London: Sage.
    • Baym, N. (1998). The emergence of on-line community. In S. Jones (Ed.), Cybersociety 2.0: Revisiting computer-mediated communication and community (35-68). London: Sage. (e-reserve on ClassWeb)
    • Hine, C. (2000). Virtual ethnography. London: Sage.


  • Blog
    • Now that you've identified some themes and begun to refine your questions, please reflect on (1) what do you think you need in order to move forward on your final project? (more concrete questions, more reading in a particular area, etc. etc.) and (2) How can you get what you need?
