The Centre for Postdigital Cultures (CPC) is a new Faculty Research Centre established in 2017. Led by Prof. Gary Hall, the Centre explores how innovations in postdigital cultures can enable 21st century society to respond to the challenges it faces at a global, national and local level: 

-        how we receive, consume and process information

-        how we learn, work, and travel

-        how we engage and regenerate our communities   

The Centre for Postdigital Cultures is a major new initiative that builds on the strong and distinctive track record of scholars at the university encompassing a range of disciplines in the arts and humanities. This is the chance for you to join the CPC team at the beginning of its journey and to play a significant role in the development of impactful research activity within the emerging field of postdigital cultures. 

What Do We Mean By Postdigital Cultures?

"The digital" can no longer be understood as a separate domain of media and culture. If we actually examine the digital - rather than taking it for granted we already know what it means - we soon see that today digital information processing is present in every aspect of our lives. This includes our global communication, entertainment, education, energy, banking, health, transport, manufacturing, food, and water-supply systems. Attention therefore needs to turn from "the digital", to the various overlapping processes and infrastructures that shape and organise the digital, and that the digital helps to shape and organise in turn. 

The CPC investigates such enmeshed digital models of culture, society, and the creative economy for the 21st century "postdigital" world. 

Research Areas covered by the Centre include: 

-        Creative Archiving and International Heritage

-        Digital Arts and Humanities

-        Post-humanities

-        Affirmative Disruption and Open Media

-        The 21st Century University and Art School

-        Post-capitalist Economies
