The Digital Everyday Conference

06/05/2017 (10:30-18:30)

The Digital Everyday: Exploration or Alienation?


This international conference aimed to explore the digital everyday, understood as the transformation of everyday life practices brought about by digital technology. Big Data is reshaping some of the most basic activities in our lives, from how we buy, walk around, get a cab, love, break up, go to bed, meet new people and sexual partners to the way we rate services, turn on the fridge, exercise, eat, use social media and apps.

The conference explored these digitally enabled transformations by looking at a number of domains affected by these shifts, for instance: of work and leisure, of friendship and love, of habits and routines. We also explored a number of overarching dynamics and trends in the digital world that contribute to these transformations, including: processes of digital individualisation and aggregation; the elisions of spatial and temporal barriers; trends towards quantification and datafication; and the dialectic between control and alienation.
