Centre for Digital Culture Announcement

We are very pleased to announce the establishment of the Centre for Digital Culture. The Centre for digital culture is an interdisciplinary research centre exploring digital culture – understood as the array of cultural practices and communities manifested in the use of digital communication technologies (Internet, social media, smartphones, wearable devices etc.) constitutes a central object of discussion in contemporary society. From the role of social networks as Facebook and Twitter in reshaping personal relationships, to the use of digital media by political parties, movements and terrorist groups and public concern about vanishing privacy at the time of Big Data, digital culture issues constantly make news headlines and generate new hopes and fears in the public. The Centre will allow researchers interested in digital culture to engage in common debates about the nature and dynamics of the emerging digital society, and about the different ‘digital methods’ available to study new social and cultural phenomena emerging in a digital society.
