We tell stories about who we are. Through telling these stories, we connect with others and affirm our own sense of self. Spaces, be they online or offline; private or public; physical, augmented or virtual; or of a hybrid nature, present the performative realms upon which our stories unfold. This volume focuses on how digital platforms support, enhance, or confine the networked self. Contributors examine a range of issues relating to storytelling, platforms, and the self, including the live-reporting of events, the curation of information, emerging modalities of journalism, collaboratively formed memories, and the instant historification of the present.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"It's not just the media system that's a storytelling project: so is the self. Each of us is a dynamic and uncertain performance, where the struggle to mean is technological and social as well as personal. Difference, desire, and disaster are held in tension by stories, competing for scarce attention. Papacharissi's compelling collection shows how." -John Hartley, Curtin University, Australia

"In this fascinating volume, Papacharissi has brought together a cutting-edge lineup of scholars to reflect on how we connect and who we become, when we share our stories on digital platforms. A must-read on the thrills and perils of story-telling, self-expression and networked connectivity." Lilie Chouliaraki, London School of Economics and Political Science, UK
