Trust & Technology Initiative


Technology and New Media Research Cluster

The aim of the research cluster is to bring together academics from a range of backgrounds with an interest in technology and new media in order to explore and discuss recent and ongoing research. We welcome all students (undergraduate and postgraduate), staff, and visiting scholars to attend and participate in any/all sessions. 

The cluster aims to cover a wide range of research topics including digital media production, digital media cultures, trust, automation, digital labor, environmental impacts as well as the economic transformations unfolding through technological innovations. An overarching theme of all events will be addressing the implications for social theory that result from empirical observations of change.

Many speakers will join the research cluster exclusively for their session, and we therefore encourage anyone with an interest on the topic not to miss the opportunity. In addition, discussions welcome input and suggestions deemed of interest by the membership.

For membership enquirires, contact details and information on dates and venues, please visit the Technology & New Media Research Cluster page at the Sociology Department.
