it's hardly exhaustive, given that i only have a week - two weeks for topics like gender and conversation analysis that really get me going - to cover the readings on each topic, but i'm hell of excited to get through some of these. it's also tailored specifically to those articles i haven't read, but have been meaning to read, or have read once and really want to tackle again.
plans for the final project include a terribly long annotated bibliography to use for dissertationing. squires' cmc bibliography was a huge help in formatting this, btw.
Anyway, I do have two papers you might be intersted in, one on turn organization, that I think in some ways contrats with Jacobs & Garcia, a) b/c they don't really talk about threading as an organizing principle and b) b/c by transcription system is superior. Also, for that section I recently found yet another paper by someone else doing the same thing--one major problem with this work (and something to address in your course) is that it is largely disconnected): Simpson, J. (2005). Conversational floors in synchronous text-based CMC discourse. Discourse Studies, 7(3): 337–361.
My second, almost finished paper, is on one aspect of repair in CMC.
superior transcription system, you say? i'm checking those papers out when i get a free minute, fo sure.
