New book investigates digital society, digital culture, and digital media objects

This edited volume, Digital Human Sciences: New Objects – New Approaches (edited by Sonya Petersson), is about the ongoing digitization and the ongoing production of new digital objects in culture and society.

This requires new ways of investigation, new theoretical avenues, and new multidisciplinary frameworks. In order to meet these requirements, this collection of eleven studies digs into several questions, for example: the epistemology of data produced and shared on social media platforms; the need of new legal concepts that regulate the increasing use of artificial intelligence in society; and the need of combinatory methods to research new media objects such as podcasts, web art, and online journals in relation to their historical, social, institutional, and political effects and contexts.

The studies in this book introduce the new research field “digital human sciences,” which include the humanities, the social sciences, and law. From their different disciplinary outlooks, the authors share the aim of discussing and developing methods and approaches for investigating digital society, digital culture, and digital media objects.
