November 2020

At the November meeting, we discussed the theme of Data Justice. This concept comes from the aptly named Data Justice Lab at Cardiff University’s School of Journalism, Media and Culture. As a concept, Data Justice is concerned with offering a critique of the power relations which have been embedded within, created by, or exacerbated by the datafication of society. Three articles were discussed Dencik’s (2018) Surveillance Realism and the Politics of Imagination: Is There No Alternative?; Dencik et al’s (2019) Exploring Data Justice: Conceptions, Applications, and Directions; and Milan & Treré’s (2019) Big Data from the South(s): Beyond Data Universalism.

Abridged notes for these readings can be found here.
