The final session of our Digital Societies module at City University London is today. If there is such a concept as “digital culture(s)”, what are some of the key issues around the “digitial society” or should we say “digital societies”?

Digital Cultures (AMM 421)

Time has flown and today we have the final session(s) of our Digital Cultures modules. We have attempted to offer a kaleidoscope of perspectives that might help us to re-configure the digital media/digital culture landscape.

If there is such a concept as “digital culture(s)”, what are some of the key issues around the “digitial society” or should we say “digital societies”?

If everything goes well the timetable for today will be:

10:30-12:50

  • Popularity vs. expertise:-Diego Beas, Oxtord Internet Institute
  • Outlining the emergent digital culture within Higher Education- Mark Carrigan, LSE Politics blog

14.00-16:30

  • Open Data- Janet Gunter, ReStart Project
  • Digital Exclusion- David Bawden, City University London

It promises to be a great day!
