Everyday Culture and Digital Platforms Research Group

This research group covers a wide range of topics: digital popular culture, social media cultures, memetic cultures, algorithmic cultures, influencers, and related phenomena. Drawing on cultural studies, critical theory and platform studies, they study how social media cultures emerge from the entanglement between user practices and digital platforms’ architecture and norms. Methodologically, this research group  uses digital methods and “data donations”, as well as traditional social science methods such as ethnography, interviews and focus groups, to make sense of everyday sociability online.
