Thanks to Dr. Vivanco, who is 200 times more cool than “Los Vivancos,” we have… an academic paper about you.
Awhile back Candy and I were contacted by a grad student doing an ethnographic study of the Bitchery style of communication.
Miriam Greenfield Benovitz presented her paper, “The Interactive Online Romance Community: Contests and ‘Covers Gone Wild’” at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association in May 2008, and her paper has been made available online. You can find a link to the PDF on that page.
Another link to the PDF can be found at the Romance Wiki page on Academic Essays online.
Wow. Dude. AWESOME. Way to go, Miriam!
Getting ready for RWA National? We are. So are the folks at Blogging National. Jane and many others did a group blog last year, but we’re not doing it this year – so if you’re looking for a pile of RWA news, look to Twitter, and to that site for all the latest.
Stay tuned to this spot for details on Bootleg Bosoms Signing on Thursday night during Happy Hour.
What you got in the way of plans for RWA?
