How Do Platforms Reshape the Cultural Industries?
The widespread uptake of digital platforms – from YouTube and Instagram to Twitch and TikTok – is reconfiguring cultural production in profound, complex, and highly uneven ways. Longstanding media industries are experiencing tremendous upheaval, while new industrial formations – live-streaming, social media influencing, and podcasting, among others – are evolving at breakneck speed. What are the implications of the rise of platforms for how cultural producers create, distribute, market, and monetize cultural content and services?

GDC Research Seminar Series
The Global Digital Cultures offers regular research seminars in which work-in-progress papers from junior and senior researchers at the UvA are discussed. The monthly GDC research seminars are aimed at discussing work-in-progress on global digital cultures. During each of these seminars, we will discuss two draft texts, seeking to include a dialogue between senior and junior scholars. As usual, we will discuss two work-in-progress texts by UvA colleagues.
