SESSION TWO: Technology and Presentations of the Self
Participants: Daniel Bejar, Sondra Perry, Alise Tifentale
Moderator: Soyoung Yoon
Respondents: Dita Birkensteina and Wendy Vogel
This panel explores how new technologies are influencing, complicating, and possibly freeing notions of identity. How will technology and social media continue to affect personal and public representations of identity, including the proliferation of the “selfie”? Speakers will address how flexible identities are being performed today, and speculate on how they might manifest in the future.
