Scholars Studying Selfies
The Selfies Research Network is an international group of academics studying the social and cultural implications of the selfie. Our membership includes teachers, students, visual artists, reporters, and others from around the globe. Our projects include publications, conference panels, gallery installations, and teaching resources regarding the politics and aesthetics of selfie culture. We also have vibrant discussions on our Facebook group, which anyone is free to join.
Our newest project is a five-week class (including syllabus and teaching exercises) for students studying selfies. The class has been designed for university students in the fields of communication, media studies, digital culture, sociology, or cultural studies. In September and October 2014, we ran the class online with a select group of international students. If you are interested in taking or teaching this class (in total, or in parts, now, or in the future), you can learn more here.
