AbstractThe early 2000s was a time when internet access became popular in mainland China. Among the bulletin boards frequented by Chinese architects and architectural students, the ABBS Architectural Forum was the most popular. With more than half a million registered usernames, ABBS offered participants using monikers a semi-anonymous venue for public discussion and self-publication, at a time when conventional publication was still managed by state bodies and universities. “Uncle Nomad” was a prominent participant in ABBS and became one of the earliest cyber-celebrities in the field of contemporary Chinese architecture. This essay is the first theoretical assessment of Uncle Nomad’s writings as a form of cultural interaction. First, the use of Nomad as a moniker is set in the context of Deleuze’s concept of nomadicism. Second, borrowing from the work of M. M. Bakhtin, the multi-vocal and hybrid nature of the discussions in ABBS is considered as a form of heteroglossia. Third, Nomad’s writings are considered in the light of the ideas articulated by Roland Barthes: the “professor of desire” (as distinct from the purveyor of booklearning) and “writing makes thinking festive.” Finally, the significance of Nomad is discussed in terms of Antonio Gramsci’s idea of counter-hegemonic narrative.
