Remote Relationships in a Small World

Holland, Samantha (ed.)
New York: Peter Lang (2008) 

	
How do people have relationships when they are apart, or develop them
when they've never even met? From MySpace and weblogs to romance and
sexuality, this book draws together a range of studies on <remote
relationships>, investigating the intricate, intimate ways that people
forge connections online. The term 'remote' refers to the technologies
that facilitate forms of communication, and also underlines the lack of
physicality involved in these relationships, developed at a distance.
Using empirical data, these collected essays explore a wide variety of
relationships, examining the methodological and ethical issues that
researchers face. Remote Relationships in a Small World, part of a new
generation of online studies, responds to the need for research that
focuses on social relationships.
