Cultural In-Betweeness and Migrant Identity: Recreating Culture in Online Thirdspaces Or Heterotopias

Teresa Davis, University of Sydney, Australia
This Cyberethnographic (Robinson and Shulz 2009) study follows migrant women living over 3 continents Beginning with Babha’s (1994) “thirdspace” and cultural hybridity; this examines disjunctive notions of place, ‘other space’ and time. Foucauldian heterotopia is offered as an explanation of this ‘Other Space’ and as a metaphor for migrant experience.
