Digital Society research day, on Friday 15 November

On Friday 15 November, the Faculty welcomes three exciting researchers who will present their own work and help us think about future research directions around ‘digitalisation’. Digital technologies not only raise all sorts of fascinating research questions, they also offer new ways of doing research.

When: Friday 15 November
Where: Attic, Grote Gracht 80-82

Digitalisation is an international phenomenon and a strategic research priority for FASoS and the University. One of the promises of digitalisation is to cross national borders, improving information and communication, leading to greater multicultural understanding. In practice, it is much more complicated, as local and national cultures continue to shape social, political and cultural practices. FASoS researchers have long experience of exploring the gaps between promises and practice, from different disciplinary perspectives and exploring different societal domains, including politics, culture, healthcare, urbanization in different local, national and international settings.

Our three guests on 15 November are:

We have a full programme including not only these three speakers, but also short presentations from FASoS colleagues. The sessions are organized under three headings: Responsibility, Imagination and Revolution.

At the end of the day, we will have a general discussion, to explore interdisciplinary challenges and opportunities, in terms of topics and methods, for future work across all four FASoS research programmes.
