"[Eleven] chapters include essays, poetry, and a two-act play by a variety of scholars working in areas from English to sociology to media studies in the U.S., who discuss their experiences with identity, work, and play as women in the virtual world of Second Life. Chapters explore how their lives as avatars affected their everyday lives, issues of gender and race, how real-life work can be accomplished in a virtual environment, and cultural aspects. They delve into topics like the creative process in Second Life, virtual identity, replication and creation of culture and learning and work in virtual environments, and the experience of being a 'digital geisha'"--Reference & Research Book News.
