New Communication Practices, Identity and the Psychological Gap: The Affective Function of E-mail on a Distance Doctoral Programme.
Sunderland, Jane
Studies in Higher Education, v27 n2 p233-46 May 2002
Examined e-mail messages sent by Romanian Ph.D. students over the first 2 years of a (largely) distance education program based in the United Kingdom. Found that participants used e-mail to obtain support, inscribe their multiple identities within their messages, and adapt the medium for their own needs; these uses have particular value for professionals studying part-time in distance programs.
