The March 2008 issue of Anthropology News features an In Focus thematic commentary series titled “Online Engagement.” Online forums for social engagement and information exchange have emerged as dynamic sites of anthropological research in recent years. Contributors to this In Focus commentary series examine, from diverse perspectives, how different populations initiate and manage relationships through everyday and emergent information and communication technologies, sharing business, scholarly and personal information.
Full-text series articles are available on the AAA website.
