Data matters: digital tracking and communication research

Inaugural lecture by Professor Stine Lomborg.

Developments in the digital society raise urgently important questions for humanistic and social scientific research about the perceived and felt impacts of digital tracking and datafication on the everyday lives of citizens, as well as for organisations and welfare society at large. In my inaugural lecture, I will discuss the role of media and communication research in advancing scholarship on the implications of the ongoing datafication of human existence, as well as bringing empirical evidence to public understanding of digital and datafied societies. 

After the lecture, the Department of Communication will host a reception.
