Openly Available Readings for Week 3, Race

This is much too late because I took some time away from the internet. Here it is now though!

I have prioritised the first two readings here because they are available through the DOCC on this site, which allows user commenting alongside the articles. You need to create a login. The links below are to other .pdfs.

•  Maria Fernandez, “Cyberfeminism, Racism, Embodiment” in Domain Errors: Cyberfeminist Practice! (Autonomedia, 2002)

•  Lisa Nakamura, “’It’s a Nigger in Here! Kill the Nigger!’: User-Generated Media Campaigns Against Racism, Sexism, and Homophobia in Digital Games,” The International Encyclopedia of Media Studies, Angharad Valdivia, ed.  (Blackwell: forthcoming)

Also by Nakamura:

• “Avatars and the Visual Culture of Reproduction on the Web,” and “Measuring race on the Internet: Users, identity, and cultural difference in the United States”, pp. 171-202” in ‘Digitizing race: Visual cultures of the Internet‘ Minneapolis, University of Minneapolis Press.

• Introduction and Ch. 2 (Chun), in Lisa Nakamura and Peter Chow White, eds. Race after the Internet. Routledge, 2012.

I haven’t found the book, but there are many reviews here.
