Knowledge in a Digital World

Project Description

Knowledge is central in today’s society and yet the conditions for attaining it are undergoing fundamental changes regarding access to and use of digital information. Understanding this transition raises complex questions of trust, credibility and relevance that are naturally pursued in a multi-disciplinary environment. The present project unites two well-established humanities research groups with strong international presence in order to address a number of issues that bear directly on how information is searched, used, communicated and assessed on the web, focusing on the role and effects of search engines, cognitive outsourcing, online monitoring and trust.
