There Is No "I" in Network: Social Networking Sites and Posthuman Auto/Biography

There Is No "I" in Network: Social Networking Sites and Posthuman Auto/Biography This article analyzes Facebook profiles and accounts as instances of life writing that create simultaneously humanist and posthuman lives. Facebook members produce corporate selves in a collaborative auto/biographical act with the site's network—both its software and other members. This co-production of networked lives invites a reconsideration of how we read and create life narratives in an online context. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Biography University of Hawai'I Press

Abstract

This article analyzes Facebook profiles and accounts as instances of life writing that create simultaneously humanist and posthuman lives. Facebook members produce corporate selves in a collaborative auto/biographical act with the site's network—both its software and other members. This co-production of networked lives invites a reconsideration of how we read and create life narratives in an online context.
