--> Gender and Electronic Discourse
In the hypertexts that make up this CoverWeb, each author
considers the implications of gendered discourse in electronic
media. Through narrative, discussion, and empirical study,
each hypertext looks at a different concern for gendered
electronic discourse, including online harassment, censorship,
and the liberatory prospects for electronic writing spaces.

Subject: KMTA #1: Hypertext Reflections

From: Mick Doherty <doherm@rpi.edu>

KMTA -- More than just a radio station in Billings, Montana!

KMTA -- _K_airos _M_eet _T_he _A_uthors MOO Series!

KMTA -- _K_icks off _M_onday (November) _T_enth _A_t ...


The Meet the Authors Series is a Lingua MOO forum in which the Authors of
Kairos webtexts lead discussions about the issues raised in the texts
as published. MOO Logs for these texts will be edited for publication
and reaction in forthcoming issues of the journal.

The Inaugural KMTA MOO is:

Monday, November 10th
8:00 PM ET (7:00 PM host time, in Texas)
Featuring the seven authors of "Hypertext Reflections" in issue 2.2:


Mike Palmquist, Colorado State University 
Will Hochman, University of Southern Colorado 
Beth Kolko, University of Texas at Arlington 
Emily Golson, University of Northern Colorado 
Jonathan Alexander, University of Southern Colorado 
Luann Barnes, Colorado State University 
Kate Kiefer, Colorado State University

The goal of "Hypertext Reflections" was to "discuss some of the most
compelling elements of current hypertext theory, as well as ... to break
the frame of the traditional [by] creating a [text] that will practice the
theory it preaches, we hope to explicitly model the theoretical interrogations
of the session.

You are invited and encouraged to bring students in your undergraduate or
graduate web-writing classes to read this text and join in the MOO session,
and/or respond in other ways (e-mail, review, response node).

Forthcoming KTMA sessions this semester will feature Classroom Spotlight
teacher (in issue 2.2) Matt Kirschenbaum, with author Doug Brent
("Rhetorics of the Web," issue 2.1); and Lee Libby ("Paralogic Hermeneutics,
issue 2.2) with editorial reviewer Nick Carbone.

Each session will be hosted by a member of the Kairos Editorial Staff,
but the discussion is designed to be open and free-flowing. If you cannot
attend the session but would like to ask a question of the Author(s),
please feel free to send text of that question for a MOO slide to Response
Editor Jennifer Bowie <bowiej@rpi.edu>.

Seven more Meet the Authors sessions will be scheduled for January
through March of 1998.
