Transnational Dynamics among the Children of Slovene Emigrants on the Internet

This paper describes how the children of Slovene emigrants interact on the Internet and explores the exceptionally rich communication that takes place among them. This crosses national borders and focuses on a number of cultural phenomena that can be ascribed to transnationality. These links have the advantage of not being controlled or influenced by parents, relatives or others, which facilitates greater freedom and flexibility when forming their own identity.
KEY WORDS: children, adolescents, ethnicity, identity, Internet, transnationalism
