Red, white and blog: I’ll be blogging lightly through Tuesday. While I’m away, you may want to enjoy some light reading from this collection of academic papers (via Mark Liberman) regarding weblogs. I recommend printing them out and taking them to the beach .
This online, edited collection explores discursive, visual, social, and other communicative features of weblogs. Essays analyze and critique situated cases and examples drawn from weblogs and weblog communities. Such a project requires a multidisciplinary approach, and contributions represent perspectives from Rhetoric, Communication, Sociology, Cultural Studies, Linguistics, and Education, among others.
