Title: La identidad anónima en los nuevos medios

Abstract: This investigation analizes the incorporation of a cyberculture sign, such as the anonymous identity, to the circuits of new media consolidated in the Spanish media landscape after a cultural convergence process. The anonymous public writing is not new but has been revitalized with the Internet expansion. Social media is today a place for coexistence, but also a disputed territory, of a positivist and mercantilist culture that promotes the identification of each person with his civil identity as well as a cybernetic culture, inherited from cyberutopias, more tolerant with the performative possibilities of virtual identity. The goals of this project are to understand the social function of anonymity in the public expression and in the defense of liberties, to know the characteristics of the anonymous identities and to appreciate the role of the new media in this matter. In order to do so, this work analizes the conceptual and practical relations between the concepts of anonymity, privacy, pseudonimity and heterominity, it offers background information on the anonymity in the journalistic and literary tradition and it suggests a reflection about the author function in virtual identities. The methodologhy consists in the study of two singular cases, those of the twitterers and columnists Barbijaputa and Gerardo Tecé. Apart from other findings, the study shows the importance of displaying two different dimensions for each of the following core ideas: informatic anonymity ¿ discursive anonymity; actor-subject ¿ speaker-subject; anonymity effects on the one who is anonymized ¿ anonymity effects on the rest.
