Digital media technologies are increasingly central to culture, society and everyday life. They mediate individual experience and reconfigure communities. They structure work, play and social interaction. This unit explores the role of digital media in visuality, feelings, identities, power relations, activist practices, mobilities and algorithmic cultures. Students are equipped with tools for researching digital sociality to design a research project using ethnographic and/or text-mining methods.
