Hey guys, I'm planning a hands-on, project-oriented undergrad class on computer-mediated communication for next semester (3rd year English BAs, i.e. focus is linguistic). Do you have any recommendations regarding foundational readings? My starting point will probably be
Herring, S. C. (2004). Computer-mediated discourse analysis: An approach to researching online behavior. In: S. A. Barab, R. Kling, and J. H. Gray (Eds.), Designing for Virtual Communities in the Service of Learning (pp. 338-376). New York: Cambridge University Press. Preprint: http://ella.slis.indiana.edu/~herring/cmda.pdf
..but beyond that I'm open to ideas.
