Review quote

Atay provides important critical advancements in cyber-ethnography. He brings together interpretations of access (ability, linguistic, and economic), diasporic identity, and cyber space queer self-presentations to open new discussions for the ever-changing possibilities of social media. -- Alberto Gonzalez, Bowling Green State University This book is an important interrogation of both sexuality and diaspora that stands to make a fine contribution to current work on queer intercultural communication scholarship. -- Shiv Ganesh, Massey Universityshow more
