DISTRACT

THE POLITICAL ECONOMY OF DISTRACTION IN DIGITIZED DENMARK

DISTRACT brings together social science and data science methods to explore the political economy of distraction in the post-digital age. Combining qualitative and quantitative data, our interdisciplinary team investigates the mental, social and material techniques by which attention is captured, retained, and distracted in the world’s most digitized country, Denmark.
