Congratulations to aoir member Lori Kendall on the release of her new
book _Hanging Out in the Virtual Pub: Masculinities and Relationships
Online_ (U of California Press)! A copy just arrived in my morning
mail and it looks wonderful.
Back blurb reads:
"In this highly readable ethnography, she examines how men and women
negotiate their gender roles on an online forum she calls BlueSky.
Despite the common assumpotion that the online personas people craft
for themselves bear little resemblance to reality, Kendall discovers
that the members of BluSkyu stick surprisingly close to the facts of
their actual lives and personalities. "
