I'm seeking papers for a panel at the 2007 American Studies Association conference (Philadelphia) on the Internet and American culture. This panel will answer the call expressed by Carolyn de la Peņa to "critique technology as both substance and ideology in American culture" (September 2006 issue of American Quarterly). Papers should look at Internet technology from an American Studies perspective: how it was constructed through cultural representation, political action and community activities, how individual and institutional actors as well as cultural forces shaped the Internet and its cultural meanings, etc. Papers with historical, cultural, political and especially transnational perspectives are welcome, as are papers from all levels of academia.
Please send proposals or inquiries to Stephanie Ricker Schulte (firstname.lastname@example.org) by January 5, 2007.
