Innsbruck Doctoral College #OrganizingtheDigital 
Relations, Publics, Societies 

Recently, the increasing transdisciplinary importance of the digital has become obvious by a growing number of PhD projects that address their respective questions from various theoretical and methodological perspectives. Across research centers, digitization poses new and relevant research questions and provides new sources of data for addressing them.

The digital permeates micro, meso and macro level phenomena in contemporary societies. The aim and unique contribution of the doctoral school and its grounding in organization theory, media- and communications studies, consumer culture theory, labor market and general management theories is its potential to bridge and transcend these levels of analysis. Consequently, our emphasis on digital relations, digital publics and digital societies represents exactly such a transversal perspective on digital dynamics.

Methodologically, the doctoral college takes a multi-method and inter-disciplinary lens and advances conceptual research, experimental, qualitative and interpretive studies, as well as related quantifications and network analyses of digital texts, visuals, and behavioral patterns of digital relations, publics, and societies in management research and the social sciences.
