Politics of the Digital
Political and social implications of life in a digital age.
- Francesco Ragazzi
Politics of the Digital, based at the Institute of Political Science (Leiden University), brings together an interdisciplinary group of scholars and practitioners to examine the political and social implications of life in a digital age. Though we are interested in the ways in which digital tools and techniques may enhance research and practice, we consciously place the political before the digital. That is, in an effort to combat the often reflexive fetishization of technological development as an inherently social good, we place social scientific theory ahead of methodology and encourage more openly critical examinations of the ways in which digital technology impacts political practice and vice versa.
