About the Course:

Using 'selfies' as our primary object of study, we will learn to think about how selfies function evocatively and how they contribute to the creation of virtual identity.  Questions we will ask ourselves include: To what extent are our virtual projections accurate and authentic representations of the 'true' self?  Can we acknowledge selfies as virtual extensions of our selves?  Do we own the content we post online? 

This Decal is a seminar, so the success of this course will largely depend on class participation and our collective interest and enthusiasm for selfies and media theory.  Course requirements include regular attendance and participation, one 10 to 15-minute oral presentation, and a final paper (of no more than fifteen pages) to be submitted at the end of the semester. 

How to Enroll:

Interested students should plan to attend the first seminar on February 5.  If fifteen or less students show, the CCN will be distributed at the end of class. 

Please keep in mind that the Decal meets every other Friday for two hours at a time.
