The Culture of Ubiquitous Information

This interdisciplinary network addresses the articulation of a conceptual apparatus in cultural theory and technology studies which affords an analysis and evaluation of ubiquitous computing as a contemporary development increasingly making itself felt socio-culturally.

The network integrates researchers from cultural studies, science and technology studies, computer science, interaction design, media studies, art history and digital aesthetics.

Through seminar and conference activities, the network pursues an interdisciplinary discourse for these research fields and their research training. The network will deploy the interdisciplinary resources necessary for a critical, technically well-informed study of the socio-cultural implications of ubiquity today.
