This case study describes a content analysis employed to investigate how ethnic museum websites visually construct ethnic identity and represent cultural heritage. In focusing on websites, this study faced the challenge of capturing digital data and conducting analysis in a form of communication characterized by dynamism, multimedia, and multimodality.
