Research seminar: narratives of the healthy online self

Today we were delighted to welcome Teresa Davis from the University of Sydney to give a research seminar titled ‘In the (double) Mirror Darkly: Narratives of the healthy online self’. This co-authored research with Ellese Ferdinands examined ‘healthy self' narratives presented by individuals when posting images of health, such as food consumed and exercise on social media.

The seminar was attended by students from the MA Consumption, Culture and Marketing as well as PhD students and lecturers from sociology, marketing and criminology at Royal Holloway. Teresa's presentation generated interesting discussions about identity, social media and the audience of the displayed digital healthy self.

Research seminars are a great way to find out about current and recent research and we look forward to further research seminars in the next academic year.
