At CDMI, we see digital platforms and digital media cultures as too complex, too global, and too vast to be captured by single disciplinary or solo scholar approaches. We seek to build bridges across the gaps that exist between disciplines, media, systems and people. We work across different quantitative, qualitative and creative methods.
We focus on critical and interpretive methods, social justice and anti-oppression frameworks and digital tools and tactics that enable us to question and transform dominant relations of power that are most salient in Canada at this historical moment: relations of settler colonialism, Indigenous sovereignty, racial capitalism, bias and discrimination and inaccessbility on the bases of ethnicity, gender, sexuality, disability, nationality and citizenship. We value collaborations between students, faculty and community researchers across rank and location and access to resources inside and beyond the university.
