CIT - Communication and Information Technology

The CIT stream explores and develops sociologies of the digital with particular reference to critical studies of information and of networks.  Social media, digital photography and surveillance are all topics researched by the group.  The CIT area draws on and develops related research in feminist, science-and-technology studies and cultural studies.  In the past three decades, participants in this stream have achieved prominence for their pioneering and award winning work on the historical sociology of communications in Canada, the critique of the "information society," investigating "digital divides" in Canada and abroad, and the rapid rise of digital surveillance.  Insights from disciplinary areas such as cultural geography, philosophy and history are vital to the CIT stream, which also has a close working relationship with the Surveillance Studies Centre.
