A graduate student in my department is organizing a panel proposal on online communities to be submitted to the African American Culture & Communication Division of NCA for the 2012 conference in Orlando. She is looking for a respondent for the panel. The panel title is “Online COMMunties: D.I.Y. from Beauty to Justice." From the rationale: "Online communities have become, for some people, a way of life or a way to supplement the lives they live. The members of this panel will share four very different ways online communities function to help individuals receive and mete out justice, talk about breast cancer, deal with their grief, and garner support for wearing natural hair. It is not simply the existence of these communities that interests communication scholars, but also how the members of these communities interact and how communication transformed blogs and sites to actual communities."

If you are interested in serving as a respondent, or know someone else who might be, please contact Cicely Wilson at ctwilsn1 at memphis.edu.

Thanks for your help!
