Minority Identity in the Digital Age
Living in the digital age has given a new dimension to the diversity of cultural expressions on a global scale. This evolution in the quality and quantity of human expressions has also impacted individuals and groups belonging to minorities in analogous, yet understudied ways. From access to cultural expressions and creativity, to the regulation of cultural industries and civil society participation and all the way to hateful speech and the importance of the collection of cultural statistics, we are struggling to fully appreciate and understand the challenges of digitalization for minority identities. The aim of this research track is to explore and map from a variety of angles how local/national digital cultures are/can be connected to minority protection.
