The Centre for Postdigital Cultures (CPC), a disruptive iteration of the Centre for Disruptive Media (http://disruptivemedia.org.uk), brings together media theorists, practitioners, activists and artists. It draws on cross-disciplinary ideas associated with open and disruptive media, the posthuman, the posthumanities, the Anthropocene and the Capitalocene to help both 21st century society and the university respond to the challenges they face in relation to the digital at a global, national and local level. In particular, the CPC endeavours to promote the transformation to a more socially just and sustainable ‘post-capitalist’ knowledge economy.
To this end, the CPC’s research includes projects funded by Jisc, the National Lottery Fund, the EU, and the Arts and Humanities Research Council. Members of the CPC are involved in editing peer-reviewed journals such as Cultural Studies and Culture Machine, and in developing innovative organisations such as Open Humanities Press and the Radical Open Access Collective.
