Abstract:This case study examines whether an academic listserv functions primarily as a medium for progressive discourse in which enacted power relations are collaborative or primarily as a medium for discourse in which norms are unilaterally established and off-line hierarchical power relations are re-enacted. A few instances of progressive norm setting and other indicators of collaborative power relations were found. However, findings overall suggest that the hierarchical power relations of the college context were re-enacted in the listserv as revealed by the manner in which the discourse was patterned by gender, rank, and role.
