Abstract: This paper examines the historic agreement between AOL Time Warner and China Central Television (CCTV) to exchange television channels. In October 2001, AOL-TW and CCTV signed an agreement giving the former landing rights in Guangdong Province. The deal marked the first time the Chinese government had allowed a foreign entity to retain control of content in a legal broadcast to the general public on the mainland. In exchange, AOL-TW agreed to put CCTV’s English-language channel, CCTV-9, on cable in New York, Los Angeles and Houston. The paper uses globalization theory to examine the different understandings of the agreement each side brings to it. The paper finds that focus on the transnational dimension to the neglect of the national dimension of globalization is inadequate to account for the agreement. The paper suggests that Manuel Castells’ globalized understanding of the concept of ‘guanxi’ clarifies the relationship the two parties are forging.

This paper analyses the way that gender roles are reinforced and reinvented through the gendered participation of girls in the online zine world and theorizes about the future of the zine world as girls find other means of expressing their identities online.

Abstract: In a follow-up to my 2007 presentation in Montreal on the ongoing NYRI power line fight in New York State, this paper examines the use of the internet as a tool for rural social activism and as a social space for the public to be represented in important state policy decisions. Computer-mediated communications have increasingly been used by
activists, company representatives, and the state in the fight over the 190-mile, 400,000 volt HVDC power line proposal introduced in March 2006 by a private, for-profit company New York Regional Interconnect. Interviews with key players in the dispute and content analysis data outline the different technologies of the internet (email and the WWW, primarily) which have been employed to disseminate information and show how these technologies have allowed for a breach in the traditional separation between public and private spheres of scientific and technical knowledge, as well as the bureaucratic process. In this case, the internet has created a new space for the public dispute of the knowledge and science behind the NYRI power line proposal, a space that has allowed greater influence than in the past in the state permitting process. Particularly relevant in this case are the factors of economic class and political networking related to internet use which emphasize the importance of the concept of a digital divide and a reordering of
the concepts of rural and urban space.

Abstract: We present a case of employing assurance of learning for restructuring our MBA program. We justified the need for revising the curriculum with previous assessment data, reexamined the learning objectives, and restructured the program accordingly. The revised curriculum is considered slim, distinct, pedagogically rational, and responsive to market.
