Postdigital Intimacies

Focus of our research

The CPC’s research into postdigital intimacies explores the reshaping of subjectivity by digital technologies. As the digital is now invisibly naturalised in how we think, act and feel, paying attention to the postdigital has the potential to change, fundamentally, how we understand ourselves, others and the world around us. Drawing on feminist theory, the Centre’s researchers explore how this new intimacy is performed and experienced across a range of spaces and through a variety of media forms, screens and practices, from Instagram to Femtech. Our aim is to study how we value life - what it means to live a good life - when the old distinctions between the digital and non-digital, and even the public and private, no longer apply.
