Welcome to our December discussion on –empyre- soft-skinned space,
Selfies, Self-Portraits, and Social Media. The moderator of this
month’s discussion will be Jonathan Schroeder (United States). We are
thrilled that Jonathan Schroeder’s exciting and timely research on
selfies has been the catalyst for this month’s topic, which highlights
conceptual issues in the relationship between photography,
self-imaging, technology, and consumer-based consumption. Thanks to
you, Jonathan, and each of your guests for joining us this month.

Moderator Bio:

Professor Jonathan Schroeder is the William A. Kern Professor in the
School of Communication at Rochester Institute of Technology. His PhD

We turn the discussion over to you now, Jonathan, to further introduce
