7,5 credits

The course introduces theories about the impact of digitalisation on health (in the broad sense of the WHO) and culture (understood as a whole way of life). The main focus is on critical and historical perspectives and addresses current examples, such as where digital culture and digital health are thematized and problematized. Furthermore, aspects of digital culture and health from critical, theoretical and historical perspectives are discussed. The course continuously considers issues of gender, gender equality, equality and sustainability.
