    Extension of Deadline for Call for Articles: A _Biography_ Special Issue

    Online Lives

    Due to a number of recent enquiries, and some adjustments in production
    schedules, the deadline for the Winter 2003 issue of _Biography_ has been
    extended to SEPTEMBER 16, 2002.

    This issue 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.

    TO SUBMIT: Manuscripts should be double spaced and ideally between 3,000
    and 10,000 words. A double-blind submission policy will be followed; the
    authors name should not appear anywhere on the manuscript, but an
    accompanying cover letter should contain the authors name and address.
    Consultation on manuscript ideas is welcomed.
