Summary/Abstract: Series: Media i Kultura (1), ISSN 2719-9789 The texts composed in the monograph, however different in assumptions, in the adopted methodology, in the choice of (sometimes point) material that has become the basis for the diagnoses, enter into mutual interactions, creating a space for the participation of cultural researches and and cultural practices. The articles collected in the first part of the volume present a variety of conceptualization of cultural texts, recognize moduses and effects of joining its heritage, point out aspects of its co-creation and use, exhibit and critically analyze the variety of ways of participating in culture. The second part of the volume was dominated by reflections on the situation (and transformation) of the subject, culture, its recipients, and finally: the entire humanities in contemporary media reality. The basic context of the phenomena discussed here by the authors is the digital revolution, the effects of which are still not fully perceptible to us. This situation not only forces researchers to develop new tools and methodologies, but also provokes to ask questions about the opportunities and threats posed by new technologies in building (post) human identity, modifying social communication principles and establishing relationships between high and low culture.
