Digital Lives (Humanising the Digital)

This research programme brings together inter/multi/transdisciplinary researchers and practitioners animated by the relationships between people, data and digital technologies. Recognising that the digital is produced through the social, potential themes include digital bodies, digital aesthetics, digital finance, data lives and digital afterlives.

This research programme is headed by Dr Philippa Williams.
