Digital Cultures research cluster
On 24th May, the Digital Cultures Cluster met via Teams. This research group features academics from English, Creative Writing, Drama and Performance with interests in digital texts, performances and cultures. While the first meeting was designed to explore this rich seam of research among colleagues, we began to make plans share our knowledge which will be developed at June’s meeting. We look forward to seeing how this develops and informs our teaching, research and collaborations across the School of Arts, Media and Creative Technology.
