Beskrivning

The aim of this network is to strengthen the emerging research field of digital visuality by establishing an excellent researcher network in the social sciences. Digital visuality refers to the production and consumption of digitally mediated expressions of selfhood and society through visual and audio-visual interfaces (images, photos, video, TV etc). A growing number of Nordic scholars are paying attention to the role of digital mediation and multimodality in contemporary social life, the ubiquity of visual recording devices, and the convergence between computer-based and mobile platforms for communication and interaction. These research interests stem from a variety of disciplines, including anthropology (e.g. digital anthropology, visual anthropology), media studies (e.g. visual media analyses and the impact of Internet), sociology (e.g. visual sociology), and information and communication technology (e.g. human-computer interaction, media technology). Museum researchers and archivists are also documenting and analyzing visuality in past and present cultures, while professionals including photographers, filmmakers, and artists are exploring different forms of digitally mediated visual expression.
