This course is unique in offering you an opportunity to develop a broad understanding of the interweaving of digital media and society from a sociological perspective.

Theorising digital society
You’ll get the opportunity to think about digital media developments in relation to a range of social issues, such as gender, race, intimacy, surveillance, science, cultural theory, and visual, qualitative and quantitative methods.
