ARIN6903 - Exploring Digital Cultures

Semester 1, 2013  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Kathy Cleland

Description

Contemporary life puts us into constant contact with digital technologies. These technologies are implicated in many
changes in everyday practices, cultural forms, meanings and identities. Exploring Digital Cultures critically investigates
the inter-relationship of culture and technology in today's digitally networked environment. It introduces students to key
themes and thinkers in this interdisciplinary area and gives them essential concepts and skills for researching and analysing
how digital media are remediating and transforming culture.
