So here’s a link to Friday 14th’s Powerpoint which outlines a bit of what we did during the class. Week 4 presentation
We did a close reading of Lisa Nakamura’s 2000 essay Race In/For Cyberspace: Identity Tourism and Racial Passing on the Internet.
If you missed the class have a read and a think about what Nakamura means by Racial Passing and Identity Tourism.
For Friday (just like every week) it is essential that everyone reads the weekly reading. This Friday you’ll be havng a debate so you will need to read the following:
1. ‘A Life Digitized’ or ‘A Digital Life’ (in UEL Plus only) both articles about how Microsoft researcher Gordon Bell recorded every aspect of his life.
