Selfiestories; personal data, hybrid methodologies and visual narratives in Digital Culture

 The subject of SelfieStories are personal narratives generated by users in social networks, taking as a case study the selfie as a current example of the modes of representation of oneself. We will develop a set of mixed methods; quantitative analysis and qualitative analysis. The explorations on hybrid methods has a two-folded aim: 1) to foster the debate on the possibilities and limitations of the “data Analitycs” as a method of social research, 2) to expand qualitative research  on this issue, providing a framework of analysis from Big Data.
