Digital Culture

About Digital Culture

We live in a world today that is highly digital, in which technologies mediate our lives in almost every aspect of our daily living. Digital technologies, in its broader sense, and embedded and blended in our environments, often invisible yet palpable defining cultures.


DAAP Digital Culture focuses on not just the technological aspects of digital technologies but understanding that in the post-digital age, digital technologies are tightly integrated into our everyday activities—the air that we breathe shaping who we are, how we work, how we live, and how we connect. It is beyond the technological and economic issues but focusing on the social and cultural aspects of digital technologies embedded in our lives. Digital Culture is an under-interrogated area that our DAAP creative professions have a responsibility to address and act on. Our group of researchers uses digital technologies to frame insights and advance rhetorical and discursive products to map and visualize impacts. Our scholars also bring about new digital technologies and applications and platforms for behaviors and behavioral change and define digital cultures.
