For almost a decade, one focus of my research has been the intersection of culture, technology and communication. What impact do culture differences have on new media use and the digital divide? How does culture influence the performance of gender, sexuality and identity in various social networks? How does culture affect pedagogies of online learning? Do Web 2.0 technologies and interactions foster and/or threaten cultural diversity? How do individuals and groups construct their identities in online environments? How do they develop a sense of community?
Many of these themes are explored in our edited collection:
