Looking at the world through screens

Screen Cultures brings together researchers from across the humanities to study how our screens shape our understanding of ourselves and the world around us.


We are drawn towards television and cinema screens, we chance upon digital signage advertising, we carry around smartphones and laptops, and we wear smartwatches and VR technology on our bodies. We constantly look at screens, touch, tap, tilt, swipe and caress them. Screen Cultures is an interdisciplinary research and teaching initiative that investigates the implications of our love of screens for society and our lives.


Screen Cultures, our international Master’s programme, is closely connected with our research initiative. We combine research and teaching by letting the research spring from the course, seminar and project work. Since students are involved in the teaching, they also have the possibility to become involved in the research. All courses are taught in the English language.
