The Department of Women's Studies at Ohio State will begin work on 
Minerva, our island in Second Life, in September.  We'll be 
completing work on a fully online introductory Women's Studies course 
which will be taught for the first time in January (10 weeks, quarter 
system).  Work on this course was begun last January, when I taught a 
hybrid version of the course, half in SL (through a computer lab) and 
half in a traditional classroom.

We hope to have the island open to the public, except, perhaps, 
during teaching hours.  We are also tentatively planning to hold 
bimonthly public discussion sessions on various  women's issues.

If anyone is interested in learning more, we'll be sending out 
announcements through our in-world group, Minerva Guests.  The group 
has open enrollment.

Wish us luck, we'll probably need it!
