Selfies, Narcissism, and Politics Today

During the academic year 17-’18, Amherst College will engage in a conversation on its own self-image through the prism of selfies.

This film series, presented in collaboration with Amherst College, is part of the examination of the selfie as an intersection where technology, narcissism, democracy, and story-telling meet.

All films introduced by Ilan Stavans, Lewis-Sebring Professor in the Humanities, Latin American, and Latino Cultures, Amherst College, and author of I Love My Selfie.
