From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Global cosmopolitanism is a subset of a cosmopolitan ideal, and one that can be found resident as an emerging identity formation on the Internet[citation needed]. A 'global' cosmopolitan is an individual adept at navigating freely within cyberspace, and in doing so understands and can operate successfully, within various global perspectives and among intercultural communicative preferences[citation needed].

Such a cosmopolitan has acquired skills to achieve intercultural communicative sensitivity in terms of computer mediated communication (CMC) and online environments, and is therefore able to navigate the complex waters of cultural formations online. In relation to postcolonial theory, this emerging identity formation on the Internet, is reflective of both the colonizer and the colonized in its emergence[citation needed].
