new course and new sources

I have to hit the hay VERY soon as it’s been a long day and one that started out very crappy, but wanted to share these finds.

Thanks to my new friends in my second Carolyn Ellis class, Authethnography, I was turned on to the new media-focused books by Henry Jenkins as well as the social sciences’ take on Katrina, which looks to be an awesome resource!

There’s also this Disaster Communications Clearinghouse and this Hurricane Katrina in Context page.

Also found this 2004 USF dissertation: Weblogs and the technology lifecycle : context, geek-chic and personal community.

Man, it’s amazing what you can find when you go interdisciplinary! 😉

EDITED to include the links to these 9/11 and Katrina resources and trauma/loss book list.
