Digital Communication and Aesthetics

The research group on Digital Communication and Aesthetics examines the theoretical and practical implications of the ongoing digitalization of media, culture, and society. The group undertakes joint as well as individual projects, has been in existence since 2002, and is headed by professor Klaus Bruhn Jensen

Activities within the research group on Digital Communication and Aesthetics include monthly seminars, in addition to conferences and workshops.

Central research questions

The ongoing digitalization of culture and society poses a number of significant challenges for media and communication research. Departing from humanistic and social-scientific traditions and methodologies, the research group focuses on new forms of communication and aesthetic expression:

  • The remediation of 'old' media, for example, the interrelations of television programs and websites, digital production and distribution of film, and internet marketing;
  • The distinctive features of 'new' media, for example, political websites, online computer gaming, and social network sites;
  • The potential of 'emerging' media, for example, mobile services, ubiquitous computing, and the Internet of Things.
