Centre for Digital Anthropology


What is new and different about our engagement with digital technologies? Do digital technologies and practices alter or perpetuate existing social relationships, hierarchies and political structures? What does it mean to be off line in a digital age? What kinds of new subjectivities and publics do digital practices bring into being?

The Centre for Digital Anthropology is a leading research hub for the understanding of digital technologies in the rich context of human society and culture. Through teaching, research and a dynamic series of regular events, we encourage a global perspective on the development, structures, and practices of digital technologies. Our researchers work in Trinidad, Vanuatu, Switzerland, France, Rumania, The UK, China, India, Italy and work on social networks, webcams, digital museum collections, massively multiplayer online role-playing games, with automated work systems, and with mobile phones.
