    Abstract

    Expressions of the self as articulated in and through digital media lend themselves to how we might see self-making practices captured, recirculated, monetized, maneuvered and governed. This special section of Convergence explores the proliferation of digital expressions of the self on social media. It explores how digital-audio-visual practices that have become ubiquitous in recent decades are at once shaped by, reproductive of, and a disruption to mass mediated, normative figures of personhood.
