About This Blog

Perhaps this blog needs some explanation. It's probably a slightly different blog from what you are used to, in that it will rely very much on your comments to work. It's perhaps a little ambitious, yes I know, but it might just work.

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?

Hi Elizabeth :)

My name is Katherine, and I live in New Zealand. I think that i'm a whole new brand of Chinese called a 'kiwiasian' due to so many immigrants coming to NZ and then having children there.. we have second, third generation Chinese here who grow up speaking english and not chinese. This whole thing about losing touch with your heritage.

Anyway, there's something at our school called the Intercultural Club (see www.macleans.school.nz) and we're working towards cultural harmony in our school, and especially providing a major support to new immigrants who perhaps can't express themselves or are missing home a lot. This, of course, goes hand in hand with helping kiwis get to know their new neighbours better.

This blog, and your ideas, and your thesis - all sound very interesting. I would love to answer any questions you have, and maybe pass a few onto other people at school. Macleans is not an international school as such, but many people from different nationalities go there.

Anyway, hope you find this comment useful, and hope you reply! If you would like to email me, please do -

Love
Katherine

Hi Elizabeth,

I have come across your name in Ess & Sudweeks' article in JCMC (2005). I am interested in the four hypotheses they cited from you.. I am writing my dissertation on communication in intercultural online courses and I speculated that "people from high context cultures may be more oriented towards a visual/holistic processing whereas people from low context cultures may have a verbal/analytic orientation." I see that your hypotheses are in synch. I would like to read more about your work. Is it possible for you to send me parts of your thesis/your articles etc. Or maybe we can carry a conversation on this?

My email is ygazi@yahoo.com

Thanks!
Yakut

Hello Elizabeth,

My name is Thiago Marques. I am a TCK that was originally born in Brazil, from Brazilian parents, but that has lived in Cambridge, MA; Washington DC; Santo Domingo, República Dominicana; Port-au-Prince, Haiti; Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo, Brazil; and currently studies at DePaul University in Chicago.

I am an International Studies and Economics major here at DePaul and am currently writing a research paper on the commodification of TCKs. I have realized that many successful business leaders, foreign service workers, and politicians (perfect case is President Obama) are TCKs. I decided to find out why this is the case. I am basically defining TCKs, their flaws and qualities, etc... Figuring out where they originate from (for this I am using Anderson's "Imagined Communities" to find the origin of 'nationalism'. And later writing on how TCK skills are used in the business and leadership world.

If you could please e-mail me back with some feedback I would really appreciate it! I also find the research you have done to be incredibly useful. Keep it up! I find it very enjoyable.

If you would like to connect please e-mail me at: thiago.pinheiro.marques@gmail.com

Thanks again!

-Thiago
