The branded self

581

Published on

An ironic educational myth: panel presentation from Theorizing the Web 2011. Explores how social media subjects are branded by the operations of capital, reputation and metrics within digital sociality. Frames subjects as branded cyborgs and considers their capacity for subversion - as in Haraway's Cyborg Manifesto - of the very discourses that brought them into being.
