Humanizing Digital Culture

Fall 2021: iCourse and oCourse

  • How has culture been affected by technology and the digital age?
  • Has this created new opportunities?
  • Have these opportunities been positive, negative or neutral for the world? For you?
  • Is it important to create a people-first, collaborative culture in the digital age? If so, how can we humanize digital culture?

How can we humanize digital culture?

Lab participants consider how digital culture is (re)shaping human identity, and how humankind attempts to humanize digital culture. An ArtScienceTech lens offers interdisciplinary inquiry and creative platforms to engage with cutting edge initiatives in humanizing digital culture (HDC) through digital identity enterprises, XR and net-native art experiences, experimental publishing, and other innovations.
