Centre for Digital Cultures

The Centre for Digital Cultures is committed to studying the effects of digitisation in the 20th and 21st Centuries.

We foster interdisciplinary research and teaching to investigate how artefacts, practices, and communities are created, engaged, or impacted by digital technologies of all kinds.


Welcome to the Centre for Digital Cultures, based within the College of Arts and Law at the University of Birmingham. This website is a hub to showcase our research, promote upcoming events, and for members of the Digital Cultures community to discuss important topics relating to research and teaching in this area.



Play/Pause is a seminar series at University of Birmingham fuelling academic discussion of videogames and virtual reality. Click on the logo below to find out more.



The Centre for Digital Cultures is based at the University of Birmingham in the United Kingdom and is co-directed by Dr Dorothy Butchard and Dr Matthew Hayler. Please feel free to get in touch with Dorothy, Matt, and others in our community for more information about the Centre Digital Cultures.
