Cultural evolution in the digital age

In the last years, I became interested in how cultural evolution can contribute to the study of cultural dynamics in the digital age, and, at the same time, how new digital media impact on human cultural evolution. You can find in my blog a few posts on this. Here a paper where I present some possible areas of interest and here one where I study online misinformation for a cognitive anthropology perspective. I recently finished a book manuscript on the topic, in press with Oxford University Press (scheduled to appear end 2019, but drop me a line if interested in the manuscript!)
