Edition/Format:   Thesis/dissertation : Thesis/dissertation : Manuscript   Archival Material : English
Summary:
This thesis examines online self-writing as social action that provides a means for women to find their own 'space'. It navigates the discursive and genealogical aspects of women's online writing in Taiwan, and gendered 'web-ethnography' more broadly, concluding that in its mediation of women's self-awareness and social contexts, the very act of women's diary writing constitutes an act of feminist practice.

Abstract:

This thesis examines online self-writing as social action that provides a means for women to find their own 'space'. It navigates the discursive and genealogical aspects of women's online writing in Taiwan, and gendered 'web-ethnography' more broadly, concluding that in its mediation of women's self-awareness and social contexts, the very act of women's diary writing constitutes an act of feminist practice.
