The Digital Society Network (DSN) is a loose network of researchers examining all aspects of digital-society relations. It is part of The University of Sheffield's Faculty of Social Sciences.

The DSN aims to:

  • Stimulate and support digital society research;
  • Enable collaborations within and beyond the Faculty;
  • Host activities which result in research funding and knowledge exchange.

The DSN can support Faculty of Social Sciences academics with a small amount of research stimulation money.

The DSN funding has led to a number of successes, including an ESRC seminar series, journal special issues, follow up conferences, membership of international boards, and more.
