Rouzie, Albert
College Composition and Communication, v53 n2 p251-99 Dec 2001
Suggests the Internet has introduced the play element into student and corporate work culture. Examines a series of InterChange transcripts to demonstrate how discourse that combines serious and playful purposes works to provoke and mediate conflict. Concludes that students use serio-ludic discourse to critique and to negotiate power relations and gendered subject positions with both positive and negative results. (SG)
