Institute of Historical and Cultural Anthropology

Digital Anthropology Lab

The Digital Anthropology Lab at the University of Tübingen is a research lab devoted to the ethnography of everyday digital cultures. Our members investigate how people live with digital technologies and how those technologies shape their lives in return. We work with ethnographic and interdisciplinary methods to shed light on everyday digital practices within wider societal and technological environments.

The Lab is part of the Ludwig Uhland Institute (LUI) for Historical and Cultural Anthropology at the University of Tübingen. There it serves as an interdisciplinary hub connecting digital anthropologists from Germany and Europe, creating synergies between different fields of research, and advancing digital anthropology as a whole. All information on research projects, members and participation opportunities can be found on the English-language website of the Digital Anthropology Lab:
