Technology pervades modern life. Most of us are dependent on information and communication technology and often relate to others through it. Digital life appears to be changing experience and the way the brain is structured as well as enabling significant advances in psychology.
This conference will explore the impact of the digital world on consciousness and experience.
Themes addressed include:
The conference is open to all; we welcome psychologists and others interested in this area.

Dr Johnny Hartz Søraker (Google) on ‘Meaningfulness in the age of digital reproduction’
Dr Natalia Kucirkova (University College London) on ‘The impact of digital personalisation on children’s experiences of texts and stories
