      Call for Papers:

      INTERNET RESEARCH: METHODOLOGICAL CONSIDERATIONS IN ASSESSING THE
      IMPACT OF THE INTERNET IN ASIA

      A workshop to be held in conjunction with the
      Internet Political Economy Forum 2001: Internet and Development in
      Asia
      September 14-15, 2001 - Singapore

      The Internet has been hailed as a technology with far-reaching
      implications for social, political, and economic relationships in the
      21st century. For that reason, accurate assessments on the growth,
      development, and impact of the Internet is crucial for effective
      policy and understanding of the medium. However, the Internet
      presents special challenges to those attempting to understand its
      role in across various disciplines and in various social, political,
      and economic contexts. In order to advance our understanding of the
      Internet in Asia, new and innovative research methods need to be
      developed and old methods adapted. The Information and Communication
      Management Programme at the National University of Singapore in
      conjunction with the UCLA Center for Southeast Asian Studies will
      sponsor a workshop focusing on methods for measuring and assessing
      the role of the Internet in Asia in conjunction with the Internet
      Political Economy Forum 2001. In this special call for proposals, we
      are soliciting papers that will specifically address methodological
      issues of understanding the Internet phenomenon.

      We are especially interested in papers that outline new and
      innovative methods for studying the Internet or the adaptation of
      traditional social science methods (such as, but not limited to,
      online questionnaires, methods of Internet content analysis, or
      methods for tracking Internet use and non-use). Papers should focus
      on the practical, hands-on aspects of methodology, rather than
      theoretical issues. They should address the potential as well as the
      limitations and pitfalls of particular methods. Papers that can
      reflect on and assess the value and applicability of methods tested
      by researchers would be especially welcomed.

      Send an abstract and curriculum vitae by February 1, 2001 to:

      Dr. Eric C. Thompson, Research Fellow, UCLA CSEAS,
      ecthomp@...

      Some funding to cover travel and per diem expenses of paper
      presenters is available. Priority will be given to scholars from
      Southeast Asia. Presentation of a paper at this workshop will not
      exclude presentation of a paper in the context of the larger
      conference on The Internet and Development in Asia. Questions or
      inquiries regarding this workshop can be directed to the email
      address above or see the conference website:
