'Selfies' are everywhere - from Kim Kardashian, queen of the selfie, to the Queen of England photobombing the Australian hockey team's selfie in 2014, you can't open a newspaper, or visit a news website, without seeing one. Recent technology, such as the selfie stick, and camera phones, have helped make the selfie a global trend, so you would be forgiven for thinking that this is a modern trend. But in fact, the first known selfies date from about 40,000 years ago and are hand stencils, discovered on a cave wall in Indonesia. Produced in conjunction with the Art Archive, Selfie charts the progress and the development of the self portrait, from Indonesian caves, through famous self-portrait artists such as Vincent van Gogh and Pablo Picasso and the invention of the camera, to iconic modern selfies such as the 2014 Oscar photograph. It looks at trends, techniques and the tales behind some famous self portraits - do you know why Van Gogh was driven to cut off a chunk of his ear? Or how Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera's stormy marriage affected their painting? Which teenage member of the Russian royal family sent a selfie she had taken in a mirror to a friend in 1914? And how are Andy Warhol's photographic techniques still influencing selfie-takers today? Selfie has the answers to all these questions, and many more! Packed full of fascinating information and incredible images, this is a must-have book for selfie-lovers of all ages!

The Vulnerability Of Teaching And Learning In A Selfie Society

"This book explores the generative power of vulnerabilities facing individuals who inhabit educational spaces. We argue that vulnerability can be an asset in developing understandings of others, and in interrogating the self. Explorations of vulnerability offer a path to building empathy and creating engaged generosity within a community of dissensus. This kind of self-examination is essential in a selfie society in which democratic participation often devolves into neoliberal silos of discourse and marginalization of others who look, think, and believe differently. By vulnerability we mean the experiences that have the potential to compromise our livelihood, beliefs, values, emotional and mental states, sense of self-worth, and positioning within the Habermasian system/lifeworld as teachers and learners. We can refer to this as microvulnerability—that is, those things humans encounter in daily life that make us aware of the illusion of control. The selfie becomes an analogy for the posturing of a particular self that reinforces how one hopes to be understood by others. What are the vulnerabilities teachers and learners face? And how can we joker, as Norris calls it, the various vulnerabilities that we inherently bring into teaching and learning spaces? In light of the divisive discourses around the politics of Ferguson, Charlie Hebdo, ISIS, Ebola, Surveillance, and Immigration; vulnerability offers an entry way into exhuming the humanity necessary for a participatory democracy that is often hijacked by a selfie mentality."

In the year 2013, ‘selfie’ was named word of the year by Oxford Dictionaries in recognition of dramatic changes in frequency, prominence, and register of the term. This drastic increase in selfie-taking was spurred by two factors. The first was the advent of smartphones equipped with front cameras and preview screens that made it easy to compose a photographic self-portrait by a process of deliberately exploring one’s image, choosing a pose, and finally taking the picture. The second key change contributing to the rise of the selfie age was the increasing availability of internet connections. It is estimated that about 50% of the world population has access to the internet today (2018; https://www.internetworldstats.com). At the end of the past century, this percentage was a mere 1%. The growth of the internet infrastructure simultaneously spurred the development of social network applications such as Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, and Instagram, providing accessible media for sharing photographs including photographic self-portraits. However, despite their tremendous reach and popularity, selfies have so far received relatively little attention by the scientific community, especially within psychology. Thus, we proposed a Frontiers in Psychology Research Topic to expand empirical and theoretical work on the massively popular, yet scientifically unexplored, phenomenon of the selfie. The articles published in this eBook offer a multifaceted insight into current scholarly work on this topic.

The amazing Selfie Best life journey to the V Factor. Detailing how to make the most out of your image, talents and dreams! This makes me wonder if the Phenomena of the “SELFIE” is our way of self medicating and saying as Americans “I Matter” “I’m Here” “Does anyone see me?” If there is no light in your eyes, no warmth in your heart if there is nothing that makes you sing, you will continue to fade into the darkness that tries its best to suffocate you, never realizing the brilliance of your existence. Finding your purpose starts with finding who is in that Selfie and making the most out of it!

Whether it's Kim Kardashian uploading picture after picture to Instagram or your roommate posting a mid-vacation shot to Facebook, selfies receive mixed reactions. But are selfies more than, as many critics lament, a symptom of a self-absorbed generation? Millennial Alicia Eler's The Selfie Generation is the first book to delve fully into this ubiquitous and much-maligned part of social media, including why people take them in the first place and the ways they can change how we see ourselves. Eler argues that selfies are just one facet of how we can use digital media to create a personal brand in the modern age. More than just a picture, they are an important part of how we live today. Eler examines all aspects of selfies, online social networks, and the generation that has grown up with them. She looks at how the boundaries between people’s physical and digital lives have blurred with social media; she explores questions of privacy, consent, ownership, and authenticity; and she points out important issues of sexism and double standards wherein women are encouraged to take them but then become subject to criticism and judgment. Alicia discusses the selfie as a paradox—both an image with potential for self-empowerment, yet also a symbol of complacency within surveillance culture The Selfie Generation explores just how much social media has changed the ways that people connect, communicate, and present themselves to the world.

In contrast to a world that pushes you to promote yourself above all others, the doctrine of Christ teaches humility. Followers of Jesus are taught to be reverent to a sovereign God, to exalt one another, and to be servants to those around them. Not only does God delight in His people's humility, but He will bless them for it. Because where could pride get you? In the middle of a field, roaming around with mental issues for seven years, if you're like King Nebuchadnezzar. You see, Daniel had interpreted a dream of despair to the king. He told him that he would hit rock bottom and stay there until he realized that the magnificence of his kingdom was from God and not himself. Eight years later, King Nebuchadnezzar was standing in the middle of a field, looking and acting like a wild man when he acknowledged God's presence in his life, in his success. It wasn't until after this proclamation of praise and honor to our King that he was given back his kingdom. I encourage you to learn from King Nebuchadnezzar and give God glory now so that you won't have to be reminded that He is the one that is worthy of all your praise. Because the proud will be humbled, and the humble will be honored.

This volume explores the selfie not only as a specific photographic practice that is deeply rooted in digital culture, but also how it is understood in relation to other media of self-portrayal. Unlike the public debate about the dangers of 'selfie-narcissism', this anthology discusses what the practice of taking and sharing selfies can tell us about media culture today: can the selfie be critiqued as an image or rather as a social practice? What are the technological conditions of this form of vernacular photography? By gathering articles from the fields of media studies; art history; cultural studies; visual studies; philosophy; sociology and ethnography, this book provides a media archaeological perspective that highlights the relevance of the selfie as a stereotypical as well as creative practice of dealing with ourselves in relation to technology.

Is there any way to break its spell?Full of thrilling and unexpected connections among history, psychology, economics, neuroscience, and more, Selfie is an unforgettable book that makes sense of who we have become.

This edited collection charts the rise and the fall of the self, from its emergence as an autonomous agent during the Enlightenment, to the modern-day selfie self, whose existence is realised only through continuous external validation. Tracing the trajectory of selfhood in its historical development - from the Reformation onwards - the authors introduce the classic liberal account of the self, based on ideas of freedom and autonomy, that dominated Enlightenment discourse. Subsequent chapters explore whether this traditional notion has been eclipsed by new, more rigid, categories of identity, that alienate the self from itself and its possibilities: what I am, it seems, has become more important than what I might make of myself. These changing dynamics of selfhood – the transition From Self to Selfie - reveal not only the peculiar ways in which selfhood is problematized in contemporary society, but equally the tragic fragility of the selfie, in the absence of any social authority that could give it some security.

Culture of the Selfie is an in-depth art-historical overview of self-portraiture, using a set of theories from visual studies, narratology, media studies, psychotherapy, and political principles. Collecting information from various fields, juxtaposing them on the historical time-line of artworks, the book focuses on space in self-portraits, shared between the person self-portraying and the viewer. What is the missing information of the transparent relationship to the self and what kind of world appears behind each selfie? As the 'world behind one's back' is gradually taking larger place in the visual field, the book dwells on a capacity of selfies to master reality, the inter-mediate way and, in a measure, oneself.
