The Digital Anthropology Lab at London College of Fashion, University of the Arts London, is dedicated to making smarter with technology for a better human experience. We work across industry and academia through the lens of fashion and tech, challenging the material and cultures of digital.

About this group

The Digital Anthropology Lab undertakes self-initiated research projects, supported by national and international research funding bodies, often working collaboratively with other Universities and cultural institutions.

Additionally, we engage externally through bespoke contract research services in technology and social science as well as via schemes such as the Knowledge Transfer Network.
