Comparative research on Digital disconnection

The field of study on digital disconnection is flourishing, yet comparative research is only starting to emerge. The Norwegian project Digitox ( and the comparative project Dis/Connect, in Portugal (, seek to advance the field through two cross-national qualitative studies.

On November 17th, 10-11 am CET, the research teams will present results of 'Disconnection and leisure locations', and 'Disconnection and youth', reflecting on the merits and challenges of comparative studies. Speakers include Trine Syvertsen, Ana Jorge, Patrícia Dias, Brita Ytre-Arne.

This presentation is offered in the scope of Dis/Connect project led by CICANT/Lusófona University (Portugal), a comparative project with Digitox, led by Universities of Oslo and Bergen, and in collaboration with CRC-W (Catholic University of Portugal). Dis/Connect is funded by EEA Grants (FBR_OC1_69_COFAC).
