Digitalisation has profoundly changed the way we create and interact with images and has posed a variety of technical, philosophic, organisational, practice-related and other challenges that constantly impinge on users and producers of culture. Through the convergence of technologies, the employment of the digital medium as a tool for creative expression and communication has given rise to new paradigms within the fine arts, video, film, performance, games, design and online art fields. This phenomenon has also greatly changed the way we communicate individually and socially as well as affected heritage and cultural institutions, challenging their role in today’s society.

Ocean Governance is a topic of increasing significance and concern in the 21st century. The 1982 UN Law of the Sea Convention and other International law instruments are useful tools that safeguard the rule of International Maritime law. Notwithstanding their valuable contribution emerging international concerns, essentially based on the escalating crisis of unsustainability, instigate an urgent need to explore new trans-disciplinary approaches to ocean governance. Evidently, a more comprehensive, legal framework is required to improve the manner in which States and their nationals maintain the rule of law in marine areas beyond national jurisdiction and in regulating anthropogenic activities affecting the ocean and its resources. Emerging issues and threats, such as global maritime security, the sustainable use of the oceans and their resources, as well as linkages between natural sciences, socio-economic requirements and the law, necessitate a multidisciplinary approach for promoting learning and research on ocean governance....
