Digital Culture (called Humanistic Informatics until August 2009) is the study of social, cultural, ethical and aesthetic aspects of Information and Communication Technology (ICT). Our main focus is digital arts and culture and the interaction between culture and technology. In our studies of digital culture we emphasize that theoretical, historical and analytical approaches to understanding digital culture must be accompanied by a practical understanding of the technology, and many of our lectures involves practical practice in subjects like web design, blogging, coding and structuring of data.
