Welcome to the DiSCo (Digital Studies Collective)

DiSCo detects a fading distinction between the offline and online worlds. We are not dystopian about humanity’s technological destiny, nor do we envisage a utopic future. Rather, we believe it is of critical importance to develop and deploy innovative research processes to grapple with our new hybrid reality.

Co-founded by a collective of PhD researchers from across the Arts & Humanities mix, the network is open-minded by nature and interdisciplinary by design. We are united by a curiosity for the cutting-edge.

We have a server on Discord where we share resources and we meet fortnightly to discuss important developments in our fields. In 2022, we hosted 9 weeks of Digital Methods training in collaboration with Politecnico di Milano. We are also curating the DiSCo Journal, an experimental publication due for launch in October 2022. Follow us on Twitter or Instagram for updates.
