Peter Lang just published the volume "Nexus: New Intersections in  
Internet Research" (edited by Daniel Araya, Yana Breindl and Tessa J.

"This book is a rich and varied exploration of current and emerging  
themes in Internet research, and a testament to the strength and  
diversity of the field." (Axel Bruns, Associate Professor, Creative  
Industries Faculty, Queensland University of Technology)

"This book reveals significant trends in Internet research and  
provides well-grounded insights into contemporary phenomena  
surrounding the Internet." (Jeremy Hunsinger, Virginia Tech)

"The talented young scholars behind this collection break new ground  
in examining emerging collaborative uses of the Internet and the  
impact of such use across a range of settings. Well-written and  
thematically coherent, this volume takes us deeper into the social  
implications of ICTs, while at the same time ably demonstrating the  
multidisciplinary and transnational character of the developing field  
of Internet studies." (Peter Dahlgren, Professor Emeritus, Media and  
Communication Studies, Lund University, Sweden)
