Participatory Culture

Participatory Culture studies and research efforts explore the role of information and communication technologies in the current shift from “top-down” culture to a culture of participation and social engagement.

Within the social register the human/computer interface acts as both a boundary and a bridge. Participatory Culture research in DANM encompasses a range of projects in social computing, community-media activism, which involve the design of new technologies to address social problems and facilitate broader participation in culture and politics.
