How does the digital world look from non-Western perspectives? How do people around the world produce, appropriate, adapt, repurpose and resist digital technologies that originate from a handful of Western and East Asian countries? How do local practices of engagement with the digital circulate regionally and around the world, and how do they change during their travels? These are some of the questions that we ask in the Global Digital Cultures Research Group, approaching them from different disciplinary and methodological traditions, and focusing on different countries and regions, but also on global phenomena and their local articulations. 

These are some of our projects:

We organise a biweekly online seminar where we invite guest speakers from all around the world to discuss their work on global digital cultures, and we occasionally meet online to discuss research in this area. Get in touch if your work touches upon the digital and non-Western countries in any way, and sign up to our mailing list for talk announcements and other news (low volume list)
