We are seeking paper proposals for several panels on Internet culture
topics, including, but not limited to, the following:

Ethnic and Cultural Diversity
Social Class and Internet Access
Fan Sites
Art, Literature, and Film (especially Independent Film)
Flash Media Comics
Corporate Home Pages
Representations of Science
Children and Elementary Education
News and Politics (MSM, Blogs)
Political Activism and Fundraising
Virtual Communities, Discussions Groups, and Forums
Hobbies (including photo albums)
Internet Commerce (including Auctions)
Sports Sites
Dating and Friendship Services

The papers should be more than descriptive, and may include analysis
from any humanities, social science, or arts perspective. The
conference, which began as a regional meeting, is currently
national--even international--in scope.

For Paper Proposals:
Please submit: 1) a 100-200-word abstract by November 15, 2005
(preferably in the body of an email); 2) contact information: address,
phone number(s), fax number, and email address; 3) a biographical note
in which you outline your career and/or define your connection to the
topic. However, you do not need to prove expertise in the area of your
proposed presentation. Graduate students, independent researchers, and
Website designers are welcome.

Send proposals to:
