Sažetak

The theoretical inspiration for this paper has come from
anthropological conceptualizations of personal narrative and the
relationship between the notions of travel, culture, and reciprocity. I
consider this in relation to the construction of cultural meaning by
volunteers through the medium of the Internet. The present analysis
primarily focuses on how volunteers attempt to create coherent
narratives of their own volunteering and make their experience of
places and "cross-cultural links" (Clifford 1997) meaningful. The
organization of themes in this paper reflects the authors concern
about a holistic anthropological approach to the research of
volunteering.
