Philipp and others...,
I am flattered that you brought my book up here... indeed there is a
website up with some stuff on it.. including chapters from the book
in English.... http://www.uni-muenster.de/PeaCon/zurawski I believe
it is easy to browse through, although the navigation is in German
and half of the texts are as well... try it out if you like.... there
seems to be more research and work going on on this subject... if it
wasn't mentioned here.... Lisa Nakamuras work is worth looking at as
well.....also the volume she edited with Beth Kolko and Gilbert (?)
Rodman.. "Race in Cyberspace"..... there are also some ihnteresting
articles ihn David Trend's "reading digital culture"....... (2000, I
believe).. and a collegue of mine has done some work on the russian
cyberspace in regards to literature and national identity and
diaspora...... and from what I have seen in the reviewing process for
IR 4.0 there will be interesting papers on this in Toronto....
best and peace
