*»spheres: Journal for Digital Cultures« is online now*

We are excited to announce that the first three issues of 'spheres:
Journal for Digital Cultures‘ have now been published, and will in the
coming months be expanded with further contributions. spheres is an open
peer reviewed web journal associated with the Centre for Digital
Cultures (CDC) at Leuphana University of Lüneburg and supported by an
international advisory board. It is concerned with contemporary
historical and emerging discussions about digital cultures and exploring
the theoretical, political and social stakes within these debates by
reassembling key concepts like public spheres, media spheres and

The purpose of the web journal is to serve as a research resource,
freely available as an open access publication, which aims to make sense
of the theory and politics of digital cultures. The journal offers an
innovative, useful and easy to access resource, combining text with
audiovisual content and enabling new narrative forms in the field of
digital cultures. spheres, therefore, seeks to promote a dialogue
between scholars, policy makers, media artists, activists and hackers,
fostering the production of new knowledge, as well as alliances bet­ween
the Southern and Northern hemisphere.

The content of our web journal is generated through open calls,
conferences, workshops, production sprints, commissioned works and
events carried out by the Centre for Digital Cultures (CDC) and its
wider network. The contributions cater both academic articles, reports
and reviews, as well as ad-hoc interventions into and hands-on experiences.
