Launch of the Centre for Digital Citizenship: Exploring interrelations of digital and societal transformations

The Centre for Digital Citizenship is a newly formed initiative bringing together researchers from across the humanities as well as the social and technical sciences who study the challenges and opportunities stemming from the ongoing digitalization, datafication, and automation of society. While digital technologies offer progress in terms of political mobilization and public conversation, they also hold the potential to enhance old inequalities and spark new divides, thereby troubling dynamics of trust in society. The Centre for Digital Citizenship seeks interdisciplinary explanations to these complex sociotechnical entanglements.
