We are happy to announce the publication of the first ReDICo e-book “Lifewide Learning in Postdigital Societies: Shedding Light on Emerging Culturalities” edited by ReDICo members Luisa Conti and Fergal Lenehan.

The inaugural volume of the “Studies in Digital Interculturality” series is based on contributions to the first ReDICo E-Co-Conference “Lifewide Learning: Transformations and New Connections in Postdigital Societies” (29 June – 1 July 2022) and centres on the harnessing of the digital sphere’s potential to foster intercultural competence.

“The Internet has penetrated material reality to such an extent that it is now often impossible to disentangle the material from the virtual. In this postdigital scenario, the encounter with ‘newness’ becomes accessible at the touch of a button, 24/7. Learning becomes a lifewide experience which allows for the emergence of new culturalities. The contributors to this volume engage with cultural changes brought about by an intensified digitalization process in the context of formal education but also shed light on unexpected contexts in which informal learning experiences take place every day, strengthening diasporas, creating new connections and transforming ourselves and our societies.”
