The Resource Center for Cyberculture Studies (RCCS) seeks scholars from
across the disciplines to review books devoted to the emerging field of
cyberculture. Book reviews run from 1000 to 2000 words and are published
online each month. To give potential reviewers a feel for what we are
looking for, recently reviewed books include: Ellen Ullman's CLOSE TO
THE MACHINE: TECHNOPHILIA AND ITS DISCONTENTS; David Lyon and Elia Zureik,
editors, COMPUTERS, SURVEILLANCE, AND PRIVACY; Anne Balsamo's TECHNOLOGIES
OF THE GENDERED BODY: READING CYBORG WOMEN; and Julian Dibbell's MY TINY
LIFE: CRIME AND PASSION IN A VIRTUAL WORLD. RCCS is especially interested
in finding scholars to review the following titles:

  * Albert Borgmann, HOLDING ON TO REALITY: THE NATURE OF INFORMATION
    AT THE TURN OF THE MILLENNIUM (University of Chicago Press, 1999)

  * Bosah Ebo, editor, CYBERGHETTO OR CYBERTOPIA? RACE, CLASS, AND
    GENDER ON THE INTERNET (Praeger, 1998)
