Volume 9, Number 2 (2016):

Assembled 2016 (Part 2)


Issue editors: Suely Fragoso, Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil; Maria del Carmen Gil Ortega, University of the West of England, Bristol, UK; Athanasios G. Malamos, Technological Educational Institute of Crete, Greece.

This issue, as with all JVWR assembled issues, aimed at highlighting the diversity of issues of virtual and real worlds.  Three of the five articles are concerned with questions related to the body, specially the gendered body, but each brings a different perspective: YouTubing on gender, race and ethnicity; gender issues through avatar choice, appearance and identification; and the potential of a union between virtual technologies and body image.  The other two articles discuss questions related to user generated content: links between creation, consumption and motivation in digital environments; and a methodology for the identification of relationships between networks of individuals.
