Hide and See(k) – Visibility in the Digital Age” research group

In times of digitalisation, visibility and invisibility are becoming important categories for describing and explaining communication, especially on the internet. The research group “Hide and See(k) – Visibility in the Digital Age”, founded in 2018 at CAIS, addresses the question: What is the significance of (in)visibility in the digital world, how does it arise and what consequences does it have for individual actors, organisations and socially relevant processes? It consists of researchers from German, Austrian, Swedish and Swiss universities, colleges and institutes who contribute expertise from central research fields of communication and media studies.
