The global phenomenon of personalization affects many aspects of everyday life, including communication, consumption, design principles and practices, marketing and manufacturing.

This cross-disciplinary research seminar will be led by three experts in the field, presenting their perspectives on:

  • digital personalization, examining how advances in new media technologies and software development influence our perception of digital spaces, the way we communicate, and our personal devices, and the way personal data is stored and used.
  • how the principles of personalization can be found in practices of materially engaged consumption, characterised by a user empowered hands-on approach.
  • changing patterns of consumption and development in marketing and markets that facilitate individualised products and services. It will assess the convergence of both producers and consumers towards the co-creation of goods and services, and challenge the concepts of personalization, customisation, and bespoke marketing in the context of ownership and consumption.
