The aim of the research group is to study the phenomenon of participatory culture in the context of new media technologies and communication tools, from social networks and blogs to fan communities and new ways of exploring the city (street art, “digital city”, etc.). Our research will be focused not only on the study of specific phenomena of contemporary participatory culture, but on the discussion of the methodological challenges and opportunities of this relatively new research field. In 2016, we plan to hold an international conference on participatory culture.
