The world is concurrently urbanising and digitising, and both phenomena are routinely admitted amongst the most important drivers of change in the 21st century. Yet, how do processes of urbanisation and digitisation affect the creation and perpetuation of everyday local culture? Are they mechanical drivers which deterministically imprint themselves on society or is the question of their efficacy a more complicated matter?

 This one-day workshop will explore these questions, contextualising them with recent research from the field. Held with the generous support of the UCL Centre for Research into the Dynamics of Civilisation (CREDOC), it will bring together researchers from the fields of urban studies, human geography, digital anthropology, finance and ICT for development. The workshop will be held at UCL on November 7th. With spaces for the workshop limited, people interested in participating as delegates should sign up as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
