IAS Research Seminar: Cultural and Digital Inequalities: Opportunities, Barriers and Challenges
This exciting one-day seminar aims to strengthen collaborative networks between Tampere University (Finland) and Loughborough, by developing a research stream to investigate who is benefiting from digitization of culture, why certain groups remain excluded and how those digital and cultural (dis)advantages evidence deeper social inequalities.
Seminar offers the opportunity for colleagues across Campus to showcase current research, discover new perspectives and inspire new opportunities for collaboration across fields, and it features keynote presentations by Prof. Semi Purhonen and Dr. Riie Heikkila (Tampere University).
