dc.description.abstractThe research study examines how the Internet is used by migrants in the construction of their cultural identities, particularly ethnic and national identities. It investigates the development and activities of online communities formed by migrants from the People’s Republic of China (PRC) who are currently studying and working in Singapore. The study adopts a qualitative methodology, based on the textual analysis of postings on Internet forums, participant observation, as well as in- depth interviews with PRC migrants. Two virtual communities are selected for case study - Springdale and AutumnLeaves. Both websites are set up by PRC students in Singapore, and interaction usually takes place around online forums.en_US
