This collection contains selected papers from the Culture, Personality, Society in the Conditions of Digitalization: Methodology and Experience of Empirical Research Conference, held in Yekaterinburg, Russia, 19th-21st March 2020.
This event was jointly hosted by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation. The conference considered how digitalization is affecting culture, individuals and society as a whole – both in Russia and more globally. The spread of technology is impacting all spheres of human activity, creating qualitatively new types of interaction between individuals and social groups. At the same time, however, there is a generational gap in the uptake of these new technologies, ease of use, and ease of access. This is creating a digital divide which is, itself, having a further impact on Russian society and culture.
This collection contains 98 peer-reviewed papers exploring various elements surrounding the themes of culture and society’s digitalization. Topics include culture digitalization; education digitalization; artificial intelligence; the digital divide; politics digitalization; mass media; everyday life; and digital society.
These papers will be of interest to academics, students and professionals researching problems involving cultural responses to the digitalization of societies.
Conference date: 19–21 March 2020
