Virtual environments provide places for 'being there together', for avatars to interact with each other in computer-generated spaces. They range from immersive systems in which people have life-size tracked avatar bodies to large-scale spaces such as Second Life where populations of users socialize in persistent virtual worlds. This book draws together research on how people interact in virtual environments: What difference does avatar appearance make? How do avatars collaborate and play together? How do the type of system and the

Historical documents confirm that Jesus Christ toured Israel during the first century, healing, expelling demons, and raising the dead to life. His powerful teaching, His love, and His rising from the tomb helped identify Him as the Messiah sent to save mankind from sin and death. In Being There, we hear from special individuals chosen to be present when Jesus changed history forever. We hear powerful stories from the voices of the prophet Simeon, John the Baptist, the apostles Peter

This book offers a close-up look at theological education in the U.S. today. The authors' goal is to understand the way in which institutional culture affects the outcome of the educational process. To that end, they undertake ethnographic studies of two seminaries-one evangelical and one mainline Protestant. These studies, written in a lively journalistic style, make up the first part of the book and offer fascinating portraits of two very different intellectual, religious, and social worlds. The authors go

"In recent decades anthropologists have learned to think of themselves as prisoners of text. In the new orthodoxy, ethnography is best viewed as a certain kind of literary genre, textual criticism provides a master theory for understanding all manner of social and cultural phenomena, and young anthropologists show a reluctance to leave the comfort zone of the archive and the library where, whatever else happens, no unruly interlocutor is going to do something unseemly like answering back. This brilliant and

Doctors gave what they could, probably all that they could. But they couldn't give Liz what she wanted; they couldn't prolong her

Ireland is a nation on a value system that equates ‘being good’ with ‘being there for each other’. As a society we favour ‘minding our own’ over ‘doing what we’re told’. So far, so Irish. It’s become a commonplace to refer to the excesses of the Celtic Tiger years as an aberration, the product of a short-lived and inexplicable mania for cheap credit and unregulated consumption. But what if the roots of Ireland’s economic crisis ran far
