    Call for Articles: A _Biography_ Special Issue

    Online Lives

    The Winter 2003 issue of _Biography_ will feature critical essays on how
    auto/biography and other forms of life writing are engaging the Internet,
    hypertext, digital multimedia, and the immersive interactive environments of
    MOOs, virtual worlds, and role-playing games. Guest editor John Zuern seeks
    contributions that address topics such as personal home pages, online
    diaries and web logs, web-based genealogical research and family histories,
    the stability and/or flux of identity in virtual communities, and the
    creative use of webcams and other surveillance and tracking technologies for
    self-representation. Interdisciplinary and multicultural approaches, as well
    as explorations of the theoretical, methodological, and ethical challenges
    of studying online lives are particularly encouraged.
