There are lots of ways to analyze and think about representation — what it means

There are lots of ways to analyze and think about representation — what it means, how it takes shape, how it relates to ideologies, whether we have agency over our own. Our readings represent at least two: Lacan’s psychoanalytic theories and concept of the mirror stage helps us think about how (and when) we might construct our idea of the self and individuality (literally), and what kinds of traumas, concerns, issues may be attached to it. Russell writes about the glitch as a consciously chosen act of disruption to assert one’s identity and looks at the role the internet/networked environments play in providing a platform/stage for experimentation and expression.
What are your thoughts on the broad subject of representation and these approaches to thinking about them?
