Datafication and Community Activism Workshop

Department of Informatics, University of California, Irvine

Data 4 Black Lives

8-9 March 2019

This working group will meet to map out new research agendas that draw on, support, and advance activist responses to datafication in minoritized communities. The forum brings together scholars, journalists, graduate students, artists, adjunct lecturers, para-academics, public scholars, community activists, and data/information professionals interested in thinking through the relationship between activism and research. The goal of the two-day workshop will be to identify an actionable research agenda that will support the interests of minoritized communities and to build an intellectual network to support this work.
