A Networked Self

Series Editor:

Each volume in this series develops and pursues a distinct theme focused on the concept of the Networked Self. The five volumes cover the broad range of socio-cultural, political, economic, and sociotechnical issues that shape and are shaped by the (networked) self in late modernity - what we have come to describe as the anthropocene.

Growing upon the initial volume, A Networked Self: Identity, Community and Culture on Social Network Sites, published in 2010, the five volumes will form a picture of the way digital media shapes contemporary notions of identity.
