Drawing on the work of theorist Judith Butler, we can interpret these decisions as "performative acts" that add up to an "identity tenuously constituted in time."
Using Butler's theory of gender identity as a model, think about how digital identities are construced as you read and collaboratively annotate:
1. Judith Butler, "Performative Acts and Gender Constitution: An Essay in Phenomenology and Feminist Theory." Theatre Journal 40, no. 4 (1988): 519-31. Hypothesis link.
2. Martin Lister et al., "New Media in Everyday Life" in New Media: A Critical Introduction, Second (London: Routledge, 2009), 237-307. Hypothesis link.
Part I: Select four online bios of successful individuals in a field that interests you and discuss what they tell us about the academic or professional bio as a form. For a list of additional questions to consider, go here. Post the assignment to your "Assignment #3" page of our Scalar workbook, and make sure to embed and/or include links to your selected bios.
Part II: Using the insights you have gained from the readings and bio analysis exercise, construct an academic and/or professional bio for your home page in our Scalar workbook.
