What is a just, inclusive society? How do we live well, particularly in the post-digital age? In this all-day workshop organised by the Digital Society and Economy Interdisciplinary Research Theme, we will explore how the digital is embedded in these important questions of what it means to live well by centring the social, cultural, educational, and economic contexts and consequences of digital technologies and systems as opposed to the technologies themselves.

In this transdisciplinary all-day workshop and project development forum, we will explore the multi-faceted contexts of living well in a digital society through a series of workshop sessions. The sessions will explore:

  • Inclusive productivity
  • Participation in the cultural sector
  • Digital in/justice
  • Embedded in/equalities in social contexts

Moving away from silos within disciplines, this workshop will challenge speakers and attendees to consider the bigger questions of how to live well and new directions for research in digital society and economy. There will be time dedicated to inclusive knowledge exchange, networking, and discussions around project development to identify digital developments and challenges. Attendees are welcome to come along to any or all the sessions.
