Overview

Globalization's Impact on Cultural Identity Formation: Queer Diasporic Males in Cyberspace examines diasporic, queer, cultural identity formations in an era of globalization by utilizing cyber-ethnography as a critical, cultural, and qualitative method. Atay presents cyber-ethnography as a method to make sense of complex, globally infused, and cultural experiences, examines how one creates and recreates cultural identity through lived and mediated realities, and analyzes how one uses mediated forms, such as web pages, chat rooms, blogs, and webcams, to understand and negotiate personal identity. Atay utilizes critical research methods, such as cyber-ethnography, to investigate different aspects of cultural identities as presented on these venues. This book aims to show the interconnected nature of cultural identity segments by highlighting some of the powerful cultural and social forces that mold our identities in this ever more global world.
