Description:

Looking Online is the newest instalment of the Fireplace Series of interdisciplinary conversations which occur regularly at Stauffer library. 

Laila Haidarali (Queen’s University, Departments of Gender Studies and History) and Martin Hand (Queen’s University, Department of Sociology) discuss looking online: how we look at our ourselves, how we look at others, and how we perform ourselves for visual consumption online. Their discussion will consider cultures of beauty and the performance of self online and offline, and in particular how racial and gender identities are experienced, constructed, and deconstructed through various acts of looking, in an attempt to make links between the pre-digital and digital ages.
