In our latest podcast Professor Simeon Yates, Director of the University’s Centre for Digital Humanities and Social Science, discusses digital exclusion and its financial, cultural and social impacts.
As the world around us grows increasingly digital, education, shopping and social service programmes go online, who is being left out? Who is being excluded?
Professor Yates recently led a major initiative to develop a new digital culture policy in the UK. This highlighted one of his chief concerns about digital policy: the serious and growing problem of digital exclusion.
