> This panel considers internet uses in transnational contexts. Since  
> initial considerations of the internet, which premised new media as  
> abolishing racial, ethnic, national and supernational boundaries,  
> cyberculture studies have noted that online practices conform to  
> geographical and cultural understandings of our physical world.  
> This session will consider the affects of internet use as internet  
> practices increasingly intersect with and reinscribe local  
> environments. There will be particular emphasis on non-western or  
> non-white internet participation.
>
> Send 200-word abstracts to j-enteen at northwestern.edu by 25 January.
