I’m looking to conduct informal informational interviews with folks who, during the mid 1980s into the 1990s, were active on any of these services:
- Compuserve’s (aka CIS) GenderLine forum
- Prodigy (pre or post the closure of the “Frank Discussions” forum)
- GEnie (such as the GEnie Girls).
I’m hoping to learn more about the structure of these groups/spaces, their culture, and just how folks used them. If anyone is either interested in or might know someone who would be interested in participating in a short (one hour) interview, please let me know at avery.dame AT gmail.com.
