Tilburg University has a focus on social innovation and contributes to solving social issues.
This is mainly achieved by developing and transferring knowledge and bringing together people from different disciplines and organizations. To do this, we have invited companies, organizations, government and citizens to develop new insights and solutions which create an added value to our society. This innovation is created by doing research, by learning and understanding.
The research and teaching at Tilburg School of Humanities and Digital Sciences focues on people in the context of globalizing digital society, on the development of artificial intelligence and interactive technologies, on their impact on communication, culture and society, and on moral and existential challenges which may arise.
The Department of Cultural Studies focused on culture, communication and art in the globalized and digitalized society by means of an interdisciplinary approach which joins anthropological, sociolinguistic, semiotic, political, esthetic and philosophical perspectives, with special attention for the role of digital media. Its core research includes the impact of digital technologies on contemporary sociocultural life in all domains of society, and it aims to understand diverse new activities, media strategies and creative phenomena in the public sphere. We see the online and offline dimensions of sociocultural life as fundamentally intertwined and inseparable.
