Transcript-Verlag

Digital Culture & Society is a refereed, international journal, fostering discussion about the ways in which digital technologies, platforms, and applications reconfigure daily lives and practices. It offers a forum for critical analysis and inquiries into digital media theory and provides a publication environment for interdisciplinary research approaches, contemporary theory developments, and methodological innovation. This special issue discusses theoretical and artistic investigations on citizen engagement, digital citizenship, and grassroots information politics. Articles reflect on the role of the digital citizen from the perspectives of (digital) sociology, science, technology and society (STS), (digital) media studies, cultural studies, political science, and philosophy.
