The Centre for Postdigital Cultures

The CPC investigates alternative forms for society in the 21st century. Exploring issues of collaboration, community, and the commons, the Centre facilitates new articulations of culture that call for a radical rethinking of the relationship between the human, technology, economy and the environment. Along with conventional arts and humanities methods, we support PhD projects adopting a range of mixed methods, including various practice-orientated methodologies, visual argumentation, case studies and ethnography.

We encourage applications from suitably qualified candidates keen on developing a doctoral research in any of the following research areas:

  * Digital Arts, Humanities and Posthumanities
  * Affirmative Disruption and Open Media
  * Data Cities and the Politics of Care
  * Art, Space and the City
  * Immersive Cultures and International Heritage
  * AI and Algorithmic Cultures

Further information about the Centre and our staff are available on our website (
