Technology and Society
Our research in this field provides insight into how technology interacts with various social agents, socioeconomic divisions, power relationships and cultures. This research is based on the relationship between digitalisation and social change processes and how these affect society, in terms of how we communicate and establish social networks, how they affect our working lives and diverse job tasks, how we access media and culture, and how we form relationships with public authorities, both as citizens and as customers/clients.
