Exploring the implications of the digital transformation on society, as well as demonstrating how we might use the digital transformation to further our knowledge on society, this incisive Research Handbook on Digital Sociology provides an extensive overview of cutting-edge social research on the digital turn of modern society.

Bringing together contributions from more than 60 experts spanning a wide range of disciplines, Jan Skopek explores how digital technologies inextricably permeate the ways we go about our everyday lives, from how we seek information and carry out economic transactions to how we construct our identities and pursue and maintain social relationships. Chapters investigate timely issues related to social theory and social research in the digital age, including the study of online behaviour, digital social inequalities, and the micro- and macro-level consequences of digital technological change. Covering state-of-the-art quantitative and qualitative research methodologies in digital sociology, this Research Handbook serves as a comprehensive resource for teaching and research in a continually developing field.

Cross-disciplinary in scope, this dynamic Research Handbook will be essential reading for a diverse audience of academics, researchers, students, and practitioners, particularly in the fields of sociology, demography, computer and information sciences, economics, business, and psychology.
Critical Acclaim
‘This Handbook provides a rich and wide range of research using digital tools and approaches. The chapters cover a variety of domains and provide an excellent overview of the state-of-the-art in the field.’
– Ralph Schroeder, University of Oxford, UK

‘As new digital technologies emerge and are taken into social worlds, so too, digital sociology is dynamic, changing over time. This comprehensive Handbook brings together a wide array of researchers, not only from sociology but also from cognate research areas, to ponder and work through how digital sociology might be practised today. There is much in this book to awaken the interest of academics and students; both those who are new to digital sociology and those looking to expand their horizons.’
– Deborah Lupton, University of New South Wales, Australia
