Announcing the Mellon Research Initiative in Digital Cultures
Mellon Research Initiative in Digital Cultures
Digital technologies have revolutionized the practice of everyday life, becoming an integral part of work, communication, politics, economics, artistic creativity, and personal identity. The study of digital culture is among the most vigorous areas of research in the humanities and social sciences today.
Our initiative is designed to develop research practices that rearticulate the humanities, the social sciences, and the arts with respect to the technosciences and builds on local infrastructure that convenes students and faculty. We will focus on three of the biggest challenges posed by digital technologies today: surveillance culture, gaming and interactive media, and the commons and participatory culture.
