Alicia Eler, The Selfie Generation

Friday, February 2 at 7:00pm
Alicia Eler, author of The Selfie Generation: How Our Self-Images Are Changing Our Notions of Privacy, Sex, Consent, and Culture.

In the modern age, selfies are one facet of how we can use digital media to create a personal brand in the modern age. In the first book to delve fully into this much-maligned part of social media, Alicia Eler challenges the popular view of the selfie as a narcissistic act. Eler, whose coverage of selfie culture has been featured in New York Magazine and the Washington Post, discusses the selfie as a paradox—both an image with potential for self-empowerment and a symbol of complacency within surveillance culture.
