"Digital East. A region in the network of data" - now online
News from Apr 21, 2022
The basic lecture at the Institute for East European Studies in the winter semester 2021/22 is now available online. How does Eastern Europe present itself as a digital region? While research has focused intensively on the socio-political transformations in Eastern Europe over the past decades, it has remained virtually unexplained how profoundly not only digital transformation has changed and continues to change the region, but also how massively digital media has been a driver of these transformations. The lecture illuminated this blind spot of Eastern European studies and undertook a first sighting of this space in the web of data.
