Psychology of selfies | Charisse L’Pree | TEDxSyracuseUniversity

Charisse’s “Psychology of Selfies” talks about the art of the selfie as a means of self-discovery, reflection and effortful self-engagement. There’s more behind a selfie than just a picture.

Charisse is an Assistant Professor of Communications at the S. I. Newhouse School of Public Communications, and a Critical Media Psycho-Theorist. Her work focuses on the complicated relationship between media and identity construction: how media affect our self-concepts, and how we can use media as a self-es-teem intervention.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
