I'm not sure if you're also interested in chat (communities) from a
semiotic perspective, but if you are, then this is a recent publication
which includes some articles on the issue:
R.H. 2004. The Problem of Context in Computer-Mediated Communication. In
R. Scollon and P. LeVine (Eds.), Discourse and
Technology: multimodal discourse analysis.
20-33. Washington, DC: Georgetown University Press
- R. Scollon and P. LeVine (Eds.) 2004 Discourse and Technology:
multimodal discourse analysis. Washington, DC: Georgetown University
- Of particular interest in that volume may be:
B. and P. Mason. 2004. Trying on Voices: Using Questions to Establish
Authority, Identity, and Recipient Design in Electronic Discourse. In
R. Scollon and P. LeVine
(Eds.), Discourse and Technology: multimodal discourse analysis.
47-58. Washington, DC: Georgetown University
There is also an older book in which I remember reading at least one
article on relay chat (by Juliet Mar), but it's not related to using chat
in an educational context: D. Gibbs and K.L. Krause (Eds.) 2000.
Cyberlines: Languages and Cultures of the Internet. Sydney: James
I hope I (being a natural-born lurker and new to XMCA and the issues
discussed on it) haven't completely misunderstood your request.
