Youngs G (Ed.) (2013) Digital World: Connectivity, creativity and rights. London: Routledge
This collection brings together leading academics, social innovators, policy specialists, and digital and creative practitioners to address the challenges and opportunities in the contemporary digital and creative economy. The internet and digital technologies have changed the world we live in and the way we engage with one another; this collection argues that the field of digital economy requires revised interdisciplinary thinking about communications, creativity and political agency, as detailed in Youngs' opening chapter.
Each chapter and the shape of its contents was specifically commissioned by the editor to achieve extensive cover through concepts, theories and substantive illustrations, of key outcomes of an ESRC research seminar series, Digital Policy: Connectivity, Creativity and Rights, of which Youngs is principal investigator. She undertook close work with authors through multiple editing stages to produce a knowledge exchange synthesis across academic research, social innovation, activism, policy, and digital and creative practice.
