Digital Cultures: Knowledge / Culture / Technology

International Conference // Leuphana University of Lüneburg // September 19-22, 2018, Lüneburg, Germany // In­itia­ted by Armin Beverungen & Ned Rossiter

This conference brings together research concerned with studying digital cultures and the ways that digital media technologies transform contemporary culture, society and economy. While a Silicon Valley mindset prevails over the design and production of the devices, practices and institutions that mark digital cultures, they are at the same time continually rebuilt, hacked and broken within a proliferation of sites across the globe. The conference is dedicated to investigating these changes, operations and tensions.
