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 inquiry into digital media theory. The journal provides a venue for publication of interdisciplinary research, developments in contemporary theory, and methodological innovation in digital media studies. It invites reflection on how culture evolves through the use of digital technology, and how conversely culture influences the development of digital technology itself. The second issue Quantified Selves | Statistical Bodies provides methodological and theoretical reflections on technologically generated knowledge about the body and the socio-cultural practices that are subsumed, discussed, and criticized using the key concept of "quantified selves".
