Abstract

Blogs can connect disparate "others," or focus attention on certain events, moments, or histories, but to what extent does the blog function within (or trouble) the paradigms of identity politics that also frame autobiographical narration in online contexts? This paper is a close analysis of A Gay Girl in Damascus, a fast moving case of online imposture that emerged in conjunction to the "Arab Spring" and catalyzed a host of issues connected to the representation, articulation, and circulation of marginal identity in online spaces.
