Résumé

Transnational youth are increasingly engaged in online culture that not only transcends geographic distances and boundaries, but has also become an integral part of their identities and social realities. This article explores the significance of three transnational youth’s uses of digital literacies. Specifically, we discuss the
ways these youth present particular identities, including transnational identities, through the hybrid textual practices of online communication sites.We suggest that these technological sites are important and dynamic representational spaces for youth to engage in transformative literacy practices and identity work.
