Digital technology has become an undeniable facet of our social lives, defining our governments, communities,
and personal identities. Yet with these technologies in ongoing evolution, it is difficult to gauge the full extent of their
societal impact, leaving researchers and policy makers with the challenge of staying up-to-date on a field that
is constantly in flux.
The Oxford Handbook of Digital Technology and Society provides students, researchers, and practitioners across the technology and social science sectors with a comprehensive overview of the foundations for understanding the various relationships between digital technology and society. Combining
robust computer-aided reviews of current
literature from the UK Economic and Social Research Council’s commissioned project “Ways of Being in a Digital Age” with newly commissioned chapters, this handbook illustrates the upcoming research questions and challenges facing the social sciences as they address the societal impacts of digital
media and technologies across seven broad categories: citizenship and politics, communities and identities, communication and relationships, health and well-being, economy and sustainability, data and representation, and governance and security. Individual
chapters feature important practical and ethical explorations into topics such as technology and the aging, digital literacies, work-home boundary, machines in the workforce, digital censorship and surveillance, big data governance and regulation, and technology in the public sector. The Oxford
Handbook of Digital Technology and Society will equip readers with the necessary starting points and provocations in the field so that scholars and policy makers can effectively assess future research, practice, and policy.
