Research Group for Digital Culture

Main content

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.

Astrid Ensslin and Jill Walker Rettberg lead the group.
