Virtual Ethnicity : Race, Resistance and the World Wide Web Hardback

Description

Where is the ethnic minority presence in cyberspace?

In this book, Linda Leung makes a pioneering exploration of ethnic minority presence in cyberspace.

She finds that despite the apparent white, Western, male, middle class profile of cyberspace, there is significant ethnic minority activity.

The work draws on the author's empirical research amongst ethnic minority women and incorporates discussion of media and web-texts from the US, Canada, Britain and Australia.

This is a fascinating interdisciplinary examination of the web-participation of ethnic communities, which sheds light on how ethnic identities are articulated in cyberspace and contemporary society in both predictable and surprising ways.
