DCRL Semester Themes
Every semester the DCRL organizes its collective research under a semester theme, under which a series of events then take place. These themes allow us to develop coherent research thematics while flexibly engaging with a number of subsidiary themes. We usually organize symposia, workshops and lectures, as well as a variety of more experimental and open event formats, such as conversations or barcamps.
The central ‘spine’ of the recent semester themes have been the DCRLectures. A “research lecture” is a hybrid conversation format that is both strict and flexible, frontal and collaborative, and addresses the central cluster of questions which form the foundation of the DCRL: Re-Thinking the Technological Condition, Methods, the Political, and Sociality.
For detailed information on these and further activities events of the Centre for Digital Cultures please see our Current Events.
