Charlus Posted August 6, 2012 Share Posted August 6, 2012 Hey guys, I'm new here, but planning on applying to PhD programs in Sociology this year. I did my senior thesis on Massively Multiplayer online games and the cultures that they spawn, and I really enjoyed it, so I'd like to continue with that line of research. I've sort of framed my research as an inquiry into why people "migrate," and "colonize" these new digital worlds, that are both very similar, and in some, ways, very different than our own. I'm mostly interested in the networks that people form in this way. So, I'm wondering if you guys know of any programs doing work on internet culture/ social networks. I've got a few ideas, but anymore input would be great, thanks. P.S. I know some programs require an interview. I'll be in Europe on a Fulbright, so that makes it a little hard for me to get back to the States. Are most admissions committees are o.k. with phone, or Skype interviews? Thanks in advance.
