Gergana Apostolova – E-Spaces of Bulgarian Identity

Abstract: This study’s objective would not be a review of the database of sites where Bulgarian people publish but a review of the characteristic features that qualify our self-identification. I shall search for arguments of our identity in the polemics with the e-worlds for defending our cultural space there and with ourselves for defending our cultural entity within a tendency for dissolving into a global culture of a future world. The search is T-based, for our culture is historically involved and our history is embedded in our individual stories in the searches for the common field of the history of the Earth. It is an argument with all the attempts for limiting Bulgarian culture/s to a couple of rituals and folk costumes, and a couple of characteristic features based on shallow root-search neglecting the depth of our global humanity roots and the complexity of our vanguard  nature.

Key words: cultural identity, e-spaces, T-agent, folk culture, global culture
