Media, connection, happiness and identity in contemporary urban society


How does online culture influence the physical city and vice versa? Are we happy with all the choices that are available nowadays? Which factors create an identity?

Erasmus School of History, Culture and Communication, Erasmus School of Social and Behavioural Sciences and Erasmus School of Philosophy collaborate in research on media, happiness and identity in the modern urban environment.
