Digital Divide, Inequalities and Capital

DsWbf3cWwAEzBIrIt has been a great pleasure to present my latest research about digital inequalities and the Third Level of Digital Divide at the Department of Sociology, at the University of Istanbul (Turkey). In particular, I have introduce the new concept of Digital Capital, seen as bourdieusian capital. I am  currently carrying out an empirical investigation to measure the level of Digital Capital and to see how it interacts with the other five capitals (Social, Cultural, Political, Personal and Economic). The next step will be to carry out a comparative analysis between UK and other countries, including Turkey. This is what we have been discussing during my visit in Istanbul and we are continuing to discuss it. Similar discussions are going on with other colleagues from different Universities around the world, including Spain, Italy, Finland and Russia.
