Intimacies and Arguments: The public negotiation of gender, power and presentation in weblog communities

Abstract [en]

Contrary to the utopian expectation that the Internet will lift the poor out of squalor, erase differences and finally let men and women compete on equal footing, there are clear power differences present online. In many online interactions, anonymity is being abandoned in favor of real profiles, community building and networking. Once this anonymity has been abandoned, however, members of these communities must negotiate ways of interacting with one another. Often online communication among members of the same community is a seamless discourse between parties. Exploration of the points at which these interactions break down can provide valuable insight into the underlying culture of the community. This paper will explore underlying structures of gender and power through a sociolinguistic analysis of the weblog discourse surrounding the Kathy Sierra death threat case.
