Online Persona Management (AcWriMo)

In case you did not know November 2012 is Academic Writing Month (AcWriMo). This is my declaration for participation.

My goal is to write the first complete draft for the final article for my PhD dissertation.  I will aim at 5000-7000 words. The tentative topic for the article is “Online Persona Management” and it will discuss the themes of trolling, Facebook and affectivity. Theoretically it is inspired by the work of Gabriel Tarde and especially the application of Tardean media studies  in Tony D. Sampson’s excellent book called Virality (University of Minnesota Press, 2012).
