Resumen: This book reveals the ways in which young women resort to social media as well as traditional media as part of their ongoing life-writing project. The phenomenon of virality is explored to cast light on the affordances that facilitate synergies among significant social and political actors on the global stage. It does not offer a completely positive view of the digital, but states the possibilities that the combination of online and offline methods offers and opens the door to future explorations in novel forms of narrating the self. New Forms of Self-Narration addresses the strategic use of names, labeling and tagging. Each chapter underscores the multiplicity of approaches to life writing and mediation these young women activists take, showcasing relevant trends in twenty-first-century life writing.
