Data and Citizenship: Critical Questions and Research Perspectives from the Margins

This Thursday we invite you to hear from Dr. Veronica Barassi and Dr. Lina Dencik on “Data and Citizenship: Critical Questions and Research Perspectives from the Margins.” Dr. Barassi (Goldsmiths University) and Dr. Dencik (Cardiff University) both study the relationships between digital media, social movements, activism, and cultural practices more broadly. This week they present us with two of their projects concerned with the incipience of “datafied citizenship.” The presentation will be at 3pm in the GSEIS Building, Room 111.

Please find attached this week’s presentation abstract and bio. We hope to see you Thursday!
