About this title

Synopsis:

Identity Technologies is a substantial contribution to the fields of autobiography studies, digital studies, and new media studies, exploring the many new modes of self-expression and self-fashioning that have arisen in conjunction with Web 2.0, social networking, and the increasing saturation of wireless communication devices in everyday life.

Identity Technologies explores the various ways that individuals construct their identities on the Internet, while also offering historical perspectives on ways that technologies intersect with identity creation. Bringing together scholarship about the construction of the self by new and established authors from the fields of digital media and auto/biography studies, this volume presents new case studies and fresh theoretical questions emphasising the methodological challenges inherent in scholarly attempts to account for and analyse the rise of identity technologies. The collection also includes an interview with Lauren Berlant on her use of blogs as research and writing tools.

Review:

"Identity Technologies rectifies a gap in autobiography studies by creating a comprehensive foundation from which we can theorize identity in the Web 2.0 world of the twenty-first century. It makes a substantial contribution to the field of digital media and communications while significantly impacting conceptualizations of text and definitions of narrative."--Ricia Anne Chansky, editor of a/b: Auto/Biography Studies

"This volume will appeal to anyone interested in autobiography, identity, media studies, or the intersections of online and offline experience."--T. E. Adams, Choice
"An impressive interdisciplinary collection."--Choice
