Researcher vacancies at CPC
The Centre for Postdigital Cultures (CPC), established in 2017, builds on the strong and distinctive track-record of scholars at Coventry University encompassing a range of disciplines in the arts and humanities.
Led by Professor Gary Hall, the CPC brings together media theorists, practitioners, activists and artists to explore how developments in postdigital cultures can enable 21st century society respond to the challenges it faces in relation to the digital at a global, national and local level.
The CPC is diverse, with its members hailing from more than 14 different countries, and takes an innovative stance in exploring (post)digital phenomena. It is our position that the “digital” can no longer be understood as a separate domain of culture. If we actually examine the digital - rather than taking it for granted we already know what it means - we see that today digital information processing is present in every aspect of our lives.
This includes our global communication, entertainment, education, energy, banking, health, transport, manufacturing, food, and water-supply systems. Attention therefore needs to turn from “the digital”, to the various overlapping processes and infrastructures that shape and organise the digital, and that the digital helps to shape and organise in turn. The CPC investigates such enmeshed digital models of culture and society for the 21st century “postdigital” world.
