We have been on the look out for Professor Charisse L’Pree, Ph.D. since we heard she took over the (Media) Race and Conversation series at SU. Her areas of expertise include persuasive communications and media psychology.
L’Pree’s presentation on “The #Healthyselfie” was a crowd pleaser at TEDx Syracuse University back in April.
A selfie is still a selfie, even if you don’t share it or post in on social media, she says, because in our hyper-connected world we use them to encode our memories and document our lives.
We look forward to L’Pree’s forthcoming selfie book, The Media Made Me Crazy. Beyond her academic pursuits, maybe she’ll launch a reality series called the “Charisse Chronicles,” or “Keeping up with L’Pree” to continue the psychoanalysis of our selfie obsession.
Thanks to SHAZOW! Media and Syracuseinfo Pages for hooking us up with Syracuse Posters at Destiny USA.
For her TEDx talk Professor Charisse L’Pree gave a pedestrian psycho-analysis of our need for selfies (a term that originated in 2002).

On this 50th Anniversary of the march from Selma to Montgomery, we are thankful to have seen these photos taken by Matt Herron. The photos are on display at Art Rage Gallery and Herron will be giving a talk on March 25. We captured this video during a visit to the gallery last month. Loved the music (chosen by Ryan Travis for the play “Steady”) also.
