The Digital Age Research Center (D!ARC) conducts specialised, internationally visible, interdisciplinary research and teaching on digitalisation and connects respective activities of all faculties and centres of the University of Klagenfurt.
It is the core and driving force of the university-wide research area “Humans in the Digital Age” and aims not only to investigate the diverse developments of the digital age in various areas of society, but also to actively shape them.
The profile of the D!ARC is characterised by a combination of multiple perspectives. In addition to technological aspects, it also illuminates social, cultural, legal, economic and behavioural aspects in their interconnectedness and their mediation of the digital.
The D!ARC represents a consciously designed diversity of methods. A combination of different approaches and epistemic viewpoints enables critical, well-founded data expertise and innovative perspectives on current digital phenomena.
