The Palgrave Handbook of Everyday Digital Life

Edited by Hopeton S Dunn, Massimo Ragnedda, Maria Laura Ruiu and Laura Robinson

'The Palgrave Handbook of Everyday Digital Life' comprehensively explores the multiple ways in which people experience digital life. It maps the transitions in human civilization generated by such digital technologies as the internet, mobile telephony, artificial intelligence, the metaverse, social media platforms and algorithms. It explores how the scarcity or abundance of digital affordances impacts access, governance and livelihoods in various parts of the world. 

The book’s 27 chapters are organised into five sections: Social Media and Digital Lifeworlds; Digital Affordances and Contestations; Digital Divides and Inclusion Strategies; Work, Culture and Digital Consumption, and New Media and Digital Journalism. The present and future of digital transitions are interrogated in the context of everyday social production and consumption. 

This book can be obtained in Hardcover and eBook (EPUB and PDF) versions.
