With the spread of COVID, the terms such as “digitality”, “digitalism” , “digital culture”, “digital philosophy”, “transhumanism”, and “great reset” have started to be used in our lives. Digitalism, the condition of being locked down in our homes and living in a digital world, has had reverberations in all walks of life particularly in arts, education and literature. The purpose of this volume is to touch upon the echoing of digitalism in arts, literature and education. Hence, the topics to be covered include these terms, exploring them from various viewpoints, including sociological and philosophical aspects, and attempt to pinpoint them in a cultural and artistic context.
Themes addressed may include, but are not limited to:
• Literary representations of transhumanism
• Graphic narratives of cyborgs
• digitality in films, web series, television, popular culture
• Digital philosophy
• Enhanced bodies and spacial politics
• Challenges in virtual education
