Research Group for Digital Culture

The Digital Culture Research Group gathers researchers and post-graduate students from different humanities disciplines who share an interest in studying how technology and culture interact. Current research is on topics including intercultural uses of technology, self-representation in social media, critical digital editions, and the cultural implications of machine vision. We often collaborate with Bergen Electronic Literature research group.

Professor Jill Walker Rettberg leads the group.
