Identity Construction Among Hackers

O Turgeman-Goldschmidt

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The present study analyzes the ways in which hackers interpret their lives,
behavior, and beliefs, as well as their perceptions of how society treats them.
The study examines hackers’ life stories that explain who they are and what
they do, which provides a deeper, sharper picture on the complexity of the
phenomenon than a survey could (Lieblich, Tuval-Mashiach, & Zilber, 1998).
The focus is on the social construction of deviant identity among hackers and
on the meanings that they assign to their reality (Charmaz, 2000).
