November 2007 | Publication | Digital Media & Learning Research, Digital Media & Learning

It may have been true once that (as the famous cartoon of the 1990s put it) "Nobody knows you're a dog on the Internet," and that (as an MCI commercial of that era declared) on the Internet there is no race, gender, or infirmity, but today, with the development of web cams, digital photography, cell phone cameras, streaming video, and social networking sites, this notion seems quaintly idealistic. Learning Race and Ethnicity: youth and Digital Media, edited by Anna Everett, takes up issues of race and ethnicity in the new digital media landscape.
