Selfie Citizenship: The Political Uses of Personal Social Media Photography

Anne Burns, Research Assistant at the Information School for the Picturing the Social Project, recently attended the Selfie Citizenship workshop on 16 April 2015 at Manchester Metropolitan University.

Her full write up from the workshop can be found here.

The workshop was organised by Adi Kuntsman, Farida Vis and Simon Faulkner. It focused on exploring the connection between social media and citizenship theories, reinforcing the importance and relevance of the work that is being carried out by the Visual Social Media Lab of which Farida Vis and Simon Faulkner are members.

Thanks to funding from the Digital Society Network, ten members of staff and students from across the Faculty of Social Sciences at the University of Sheffield were able to attend the Selfie Citizenship workshop.
