About This Blog
Well, if you've found this weblog, you probably also know what it's about. I guess it's supposed to work as a forum, rather than a diary. It's actually for my research on the Internet and the effect it can have on cultural identities... and in particular, I'm hoping that it might have some potential in giving a form of quality in the lives of a certain group of people - multicultural kids, who have experienced being born in a country different from their parents', who have moved around alot or simply feel that they don't have one country which they consider to be home.
The name of this blog is my attempt to get to the core of the issue here - by transit, I refer to airports and terminals, and the stages and periods of our lives where we are throwing ourselves back and forth between countries and cultures. I think airport terminals are a nice symbol for where we feel comfortable - knowing that we can flee from one place to the other, but also knowing that we then foster a belonging to everywhere and nowhere - sometimes causing us to feel like cosmopolitans, or citizens of the world.
So, the idea is this: I raise an issue revolving the life-world of a multicultural person. I tell you what I think, and then I ask you to answer. What do you think?
