Hypermedia: Some Technology, Some Implications (Fall 1999)


Reading Assignment: Readings on Race, Gender, Internet, and Hypertext

Assigned: Thursday, October 7, 1999
Questions Due: Noon, Monday, October 11, 1999
Expected Discussion: Tuesday, October 12, 1999

This is a reading assignment. You should reflect on the notes on reading assignments before undertaking this assignment.

There are surprisingly few articles on gender and hypertext, nationality and hypertext, or race and hypertext. Of these areas, gender and hypertext seems to get the most coverage. On the other hand, there are a number of articles pertaining to these race, gender, nationality, and computers or the Internet. We've pulled together a representative selection. Please read,

Note that the Maso piece is intentionally nontraditionaly somewhat confrontational, and explicitly sexual (in certain places). I expect that you are mature enough readers to be able to handle this piece.

Note also that the Simon piece is intended more to provoke your thinking about empowerment (since that was a recent discussion topic) than to speak to ideas of race, gender, or culture.
