Digital Cultures is part of the English Literature and Cultural Studies seminar series at the University of Westminster.

This seminar will explore one of the most ubiquitous and, at the same time, elusive phenomena of contemporary culture: the experience of digitality.

It will be followed by drinks at the Green Man pub.

This event is free and open to all – no booking is required. External visitors to the university will need to sign in at reception and should email [email protected] in advance to be added to the guest list.
