Online writing in global contexts: rethink the nature of connections and communication in the age of international online media

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

When we write online, or when our writing goes online, who is our audience? Is it a specific group of readers who frequent our particular blogs or who refer to our specific websites, or is it more complex? After all, as we’re regularly reminded, cyberspace is largely borderless space—a realm in which geopolitical boundaries often have deceptively little consequence. It’s a place in which limitations of physical geography can seem almost nonexistent as people on different continents can chat online just about as quickly and directly as neighbors over a fence. And as conventional notions of geopolitics and geography change, ways in which we perceive “audience” in writing must evolve.
