Welcome to the Cybercultures project home page. This inter- and multi-disciplinary project aims to examine, explore and critically engage with the issues and implications created by the growing adoption of information technologies for inter-human communication and focus on examination of the continuing impact of emergent cybermedia for human communication and culture. In particular the conference will encourage equally theoretical and practical debates which surround the cultural contexts within which cybermedial and technological advances are occurring.
The project will engage with a number of core themes;
~ Cyberspace and Cyberculture
~ Cybercultures, Cybersubcultures and Online Communities
~ Videogame Cultures
~ Digital and Interactive Arts
~ Cybercultures and Politics
~ Cybermedia and Innovation in Cyberjournalism
~ Education Use of 3-D Videogames and Virtual Worlds
Related themes will also be identified for development and exploration. Out of our deliberations it is anticipated that a series of related cross context research projects will develop.
