Oxford Handbook Digital Technology & Society

The Oxford Handbook of Digital Technology and Society
Edited by Simeon J. Yates and Ronald E. Rice

This book is a guide into the increasingly interconnected domains of digital technology and society. It presents extensive reviews into several domains affected by digital technology and media, such as health, politics, and interpersonal relationships, which are developed from the findings of the “Ways of Being in a Digital Age” project commissioned by the UK Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC). The book includes interdisciplinary, comprehensive reviews on central aspects of the current digital age. Aside from a look into the methodology of the ESRC project, the book contains chapters discussing individual and relational domains to more organizational, community, and citizenship domains, and then to more societal and governance domains. The chapters within each section provide a solid foundation for understanding the current state of research and theory in each of these areas, and for grounding future research, theory, and practice. They also bring to bear literature from a wide variety of disciplines, necessary for understanding the interrelationships between digital technology and society.

Keywords: digital technology, digital age, ESRC, Economic and Social Research Council, interdisciplinary research, society
