Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Technology has always been social and society has always been technological. This fact has become increasingly difficult to ignore following the recent explosion of collaborative and user-generated content—what is now generally referred to as “social media” or “Web 2.0.” The social Web has the potential to change and/or reinforce some of our most fundamental social relationships, including those with others, ourselves, our bodies and our experience with reality itself. Given the increasing importance of the social Web that is now enmeshed with virtually every aspect of our lives, there is a growing need for theoretical concepts to help us explain the implication of the Web for our everyday lives. This special issue is a companion piece to the Theorizing the Web conference, April 14th, 2012. Like the conference, the goal of the special issue is to generate conversation between researchers from a range of disciplines, including sociology, communications, philosophy, anthropology, economics, English, history, political science, information science, the arts, and more.
