The digital world, made possible by information technologies, is fertile ground for fascinating research on culture and society. The academic world has been addressing these questions for the past three decade. The advent of "social network" sites has increased this interest as has the growing attention to issues of privacy and civil rights in the digital domain. Students wishing to focus especially on the history and philosophy of digital culture are invited to do so. The Cohn Institute offers a special focus on the digital world and information technologies.
