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

EU and if they have an MA qualification (or nearing completion), or 
relevant professional experience.

M4C PhD funding scheme, but who are interested in PhD study at the 
Centre for Postdigital Cultures, are encouraged to contact Prof. Mel 
Jordan (mel.jordan at coventry.ac.uk) and Dr. Miriam De Rosa
