distance, sociological studies of electronic communication,
using electronic communication to access scholarly resources
and datasets, electronic journals, reader lists, bulletin boards,
remote access to computers and resources, cyberspace, on-line
conferencing, fax-on-demand, and telephony.

Topics might include but are not limited to the following:

- Implications of electronic communication for distance learning,
  extension, and outreach
- How BITNET and the INTERNET are changing research in sociology
- How sociological practice is changing due to electronic communication
- Research opportunities afforded by electronic communication
