development of in-depth understanding of both local and global realities (see, for example, Chapters One and Six). These characteristics feature awareness and sensitivity to linguistic and cultural differences, including barriers that can be used productively in negotiating meaning while celebrating the pluralism of perspectives that is intrinsic to the international classroom as it is to life in the global world (see, for example, Chapters Two and Eight). In addition, they supply a user-friendly course design that encourages active participation in a variety of

had to become a registered user of a gay male website to gather photographic material (in the introduc- tion, Castetbon also explains that, given that the exchanges between the participants and himself were based on trust, he did not want to pass for a woman and therefore lie to potential female participants; nonetheless, one can indeed regret the absence of women in this book). The photographs previously described and their virtual circulation in cyberspace are also indicative of a number of phenomena: the development and the democra- tisation of increasingly

account of an ethics of becoming as a productive way of life. This aspect is crucial in creating a new figuration of vulnerability as a continual relation to one’s life and world, as opposed to a distinct symptom of social wrong. The idea to integrate a sense of vulnerability into Deleuzian ethics may seem like an attempt to synthesize two opposing strands of post-Kantian ethics. In contemporary post-liberal ethics, the notion of vulnerability, as a basis for ethics, is associated with Emmanuel Levinas and Judith Butler. Rosi Braidotti presents Deleuzian ethics as

that individuals perceive and behave toward gendered avatars in ways similar to how they respond to men and women generally. Children have been shown to trust female representations more than male representations on topics such as princesses and makeup, but trust male representations more than female representations on topics such as football and dinosaurs (Lee, Liao, & Ryu, 2007). In digital worlds, greater interpersonal distance is maintained in male-male avatar dyads than in male-female or female-female dyads (Yee, Bailenson, Urbanek, Chang, & Merget, 2007), as is

), but may also result from a combination of newness and relationship distance, because when parties are socially distant (for example, virtual team members or Internet transactional partners), they may not receive first-hand, verifiable information about the other for some time. Sociologically, almost every relationship begins with an initial phase, which can be characterized by uncertainty and doubt, and in which conflicting parties, for example look around for the right level of trust to accord the other.

thereby aggravated by the forms and genres of contemporary mass media culture. The virtual society – this civilization of electronic govern- ment, digital play, reality television and online networking – generates a world in which the empty fantasies of World of Warcraft parallel the prevail- ing condition of absurdity experienced by a civilization which has sought to wage a War on Terror, an absurdly abstract and devastatingly immediate phenomenon which keeps refusing to be consigned to the pages of history. This book explores how these media forms perpetuate and
