Digital Culture and Communication

The Digital Culture and Communication section of ECREA

Series of seminars on digital culture research in Barcelona(Nov./Dec. 2013)

Innovation in Digital Culture Research is a set of interdisciplinary seminars and workshops that aims to explore innovative ethnographic and qualitative methodologies of social research in the field of culture, media and digital technologies and how creativity and innovation is embodied in research practices and objects of study related with digital culture and network society.

The seminars are open to researchers, scholars and phd. students interested in actualizing and debating about creativity and innovation in ethnographic and qualitative fieldwork, and the interdisciplinary ways to approach the study of social change, development and technological innovation. In the close-up workshops visiting professors will discuss in depth concrete aspects of ongoing researches brought out by the participants.

Innovation in Digital Culture Research is addressed to anyone facing the challenges associated with conducting ‘fieldwork’ in or about digital environments. This includes participants from either humanities or social sciences such as anthropology, sociology, communication and media studies, political science, urban geography, including design, informatics, and information sciences.
