UCL Anthropology


Centre for Digital Anthropology

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.

How does the current coronavirus pandemic affect people across the world? The ethnographic research project below aims to be a repository of documentation evidencing the experience of COVID-19, with a particular focus on the role of digital technologies in responding to the crisis. It is sourced from students, researchers, healthcare workers, and indeed anyone who wishes to participate.

At the UCL Centre for Digital Anthropology we bring the insights of anthropology to understand emerging digital worlds. We are committed to research which both advances anthropological understandings of human being in a digital age, and generates grounded ethnographic insights that can inform both policy and technology design.
