March 2008: Online Engagement

The March 2008 issue of Anthropology News features an In Focus thematic commentary series titled "Online Engagement." Online forums for social engagement and information exchange have emerged as dynamic sites of anthropological research in recent years. Contributors to this In Focus commentary series examine, from diverse perspectives, how different populations initiate and manage relationships through everyday and emergent information and communication technologies, sharing business, scholarly and personal information.

Full-text series articles are available on the AAA website.

Are you doing research in an area related to online engagement? What role does the Internet play in your work? Are you a member of a professional or recreational online community? We welcome your comments!

There is a mistake in the link given in the following key sentence within the post on which I am commenting:

Full-text series articles are available on the AAA website.

The given link is flawed and does not lead to the articles under discussion but instead to a dead-end blogger page. Perhaps it can be fixed so as to facilitate the intended discussion.
