Psychotherapeutic discourse in problematizing transnational identities in computer-mediated interaction: Refusals to be ‘diagnosed’

Research output: Contribution to book/anthology/report/conference proceedingBook chapterResearchpeer-review

Abstract

The chapter focuses on the complexity of transnational belonging and on the diversity of the discursive and semiotic resources through which it is constructed in the computer-mediated Russian-speaking social space, Rusforum.
The study connects the matters of transnational (dis)identification and subjectivation with the concerns and methods of socio-semiotics and interactional linguistics in order to reveal how the actors both mobilize the expert authority of psy discourse and practices and render themselves the freedom to not accept a particular type of relationship with the transnational selves which this authority offers.
Through this examination, I take a critical stance towards the technologies of transnational identification that construct transnational living as deviant and inherently unsound. At the same time, I highlight the discursive acts of resistance to problematizing transnational belonging, which take place in social media environments.
Keywords: computer-mediated communication, social-semiotic discourse analysis, identity, transnational subjectivity, subjectivation
