Fictions of the self: identity in the digital age06 Feb 2017
The event is over
Fictions of the self: identity in the digital age. This get-together explores the question of identity on the social media and the way these have become supports for writing and asserting a self-image. What do we show of ourselves on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tinder, etc.? What does this say about us, whether it is controlled (e-reputation, fictional profiles) or not? Somewhere between autobiography and fiction, the social media eliminate the barriers between private and public life, constantly making play with the ambivalence between the pleasure of sharing and the desire to protect oneself.
