The modern world is characterized by rapid and intense social and cultural change. Due to globalization and the attendant new technologies demographic and cultural changes seem more pervasive than ever before. These form the object of this research program. We engage specifically with digital culture, communication and group formation in globalized society, and the implications for the public sphere.
