Digitalisation, Networked Society and (Internet) Cultures

Working across disciplines and faculties, the University of Passau has consistently been investigating another global development since 2011: the effects of digitalisation on society. The success of collaboration in this and many other projects led researchers at the University to develop the key topic of ‘Digitalisation, Networked Society and (Internet) Cultures’.
