Selfies are everywhere. Miley Cyrus does it, Barack Obama does it, and even pope Francis leaves his popemobile to let his followers take some selfies with him. Since the term ‚selfie’ has been chosen to be the word of the year 2013 by the Oxford Dictionaries, it has become evident that taking and sharing selfies is not just some temporary hype of web culture but a noteworthy cultural practice that calls for further academic exploration. The phenomenon of selfies raises a variety of questions regarding subjectivity, identity, the recent history of photography, network culture, and image theory. What is new about selfies? To what extent should they be considered as a remediation of older image practices like self-portraiture or personal photography? Why did the genre of ‚selfies’ become viral in social online media? How did this new visual genre evolve and develop so many subgenres? What are the technological conditions of the social practice of taking and sharing selfies? The conference #SELFIE - IMAG(IN)ING THE SELF IN DIGITAL MEDIA seeks to explore these and other questions, which are often facing the intersection of different disciplines, such as Media Studies, Art History, Cultural Studies, Psychology, or Sociology.
