  • Issues in Global Studies
    Global Digital Cultures

    ​The relatively recent concept of global digital culture encompasses a wide variety of transnational communications activities and transactions including social and political activism, criminal and antisocial movements, design and infrastructure, information warfare and cyber-security, data mining and representation, gaming and virtual reality, and commerce. Digital platforms allow us to communicate and interact far beyond national and regional boundaries, profoundly changing the character, impact, and reach of daily human activity.
