selfie

(redirected from selfy)
Also found in: Dictionary.

selfie

A still picture of one's self, typically taken with a smartphone that has a front-facing camera. A video selfie is a video recording rather than a still image. People take so many selfies these days that a phone's front-facing camera is often called a "selfie camera."

Selfie Stick
A selfie stick is a telescopic pole that extends the smartphone out several feet. It lets people take a more natural selfie without their arm showing. In addition, more background scenery can be photographed when the camera is extended farther out. See selfie drone, ballot selfie, front-facing camera and theftie.

When Edouard Glissant, for example, presents the Diaspora as the rhizome (as the web of roots and not the totalitarian root) and differentiates between root identity and the theory of Relation, he, like Kgositsile in "For Afroamerica", situates questions of the black Diaspora as a questioning of how the Self merges with Others without risking the disappearance of Selfy. (xvi) In "For Afroamerica" the recognition of two bodies in pain becomes Kgositsile's means of representing the bleeding body as the limit and the means of black diasporic connection.
