Title: I'm from everywhere : articulations of queer identity in online spaces
Author: Hill, Erica Ruth
Abstract: This thesis is an exploration of the various ways in which queer identity has been subsumed within an urban sensibility by mainstream culture , and how mediated articulations of queerness have subsequently been impacted . Highlighting the influence of late capitalism within the creation of a categorical “queer” identity , this work connects the history of the gentrified gayborhood to televisual and filmic representations of urban and rural queers . Interrogating legacy media representations opens up a conversation about how new media articulations of queerness might operate in the digital age . Examinations of popular queer websites , Downelink , GLEE and I’m From Driftwood illustrate the reification of common LGBTQ identity tropes , as well as highlight the spaces where queer affect theory might perform a critical intervention in how new media scholars might approach future research of online sources .
