The Digital culture group at the Department of Arts and Cultural Studies consists of people who apply critical approaches in their research. Members adapt different takes inspired by theoretical frameworks such as critical theory, cultural studies, including intersectional data feminism, critical algorithmic studies, and big data studies.
The group conducts research on a wide range of subjects related to digital culture in a broad sense. These include digital cultural heritage, digital art, digital literature, digital cultural politics, digital labour, social media, big data, artificial intelligence, machine learning, remixing, censorship, surveillance, privacy, smart cities, digital archives, databases, sound, curation, data practices, data politics, data subjectivities, computational aesthetics, computer and machine vision, neural networks, algorithmic curating and decision making, technologies of control, data reuse, data ethics, and everyday cultural practices and infrastructures.
The group applies an array of mostly qualitative but also quantitative methods inspired by digital humanities and social sciences. These include:
Sensory ethnography, netnography, social network analysis, qualitative and quantitative content analysis, discourse analysis, document analysis, platform analysis, cultural analysis, aesthetic analysis, observations, data visualisation, visual methods, computational analysis, social data science, interviews, focus groups, walkthrough methods, art- and practice based methodologies, film and sound methodologies, and institutional analysis.
Critical interventions that focus on policies and regulation, wider effects of platformisation, patterns of production and consumption, race, discrimination, gender, privacy, user rights, digital labour.
Institutional and curatorial opportunities and challenges, aesthetic manifestations, types, genres, political and cultural effects.
Algorithmic curation, politics of prioritization, digital collections, digital interfaces.
