Ego-media: The impact of new media on forms and practices of self-presentation

This project will look at how digital and social media have transformed how we write about and present ourselves online. In considering the implications of the growth of new digital methods of self-expression on notions such as individuality, creativity, privacy and sociability, the study will examine the shift from traditional biographical and autobiographical forms such as letters, diaries, journals and memoirs to the immediacy and often fragmented forms of self-presentation available on social media. It will also question the impact of digital technologies such as Facebook, blogging and Twitter on how we portray ourselves.
