Data Power Conference 5.0 - Bangalore (India), Graz (Austria) and online
apologies for cross-posting
It is my great pleasure to inform you that we have just published the Call for Papers/Abstracts for the fifth Data Power Conference. The conference will take place from 4th to 6th September 2024 in Bangalore (India), Graz (Austria) and online. Deadline CfP: 19th January 2024
The Data Power Conference hosts critical reflections on data’s power and the social, political, economic and cultural consequences of data’s increasing presence in our lives, workplaces, and societies. The 5th International Data Power focuses on situating data practices and looking beyond data universalism. It aims to:
Situate data practices in the power relations that shape their creation and use in the world
Explore the importance of place, space, time and context in the making of data and the effects of data power
Examine the centres of data power and their infrastructures
In addition, the conference asks:
What constitutes rigorous methods when it comes to researching data power locally and globally?
To what extent does critical data power research need to focus on specific instances of data power in action?
What generalised critiques can be made from our field?
To facilitate dialogues across disciplines and with stakeholders, we welcome papers from interdisciplinary teams including disciplines incorporating aspects of data science, and papers which incorporate non-academic collaborators from a range of sectors.
As always, the Data Power Conference remains concerned with in/equalities, discrimination, questions of justice, rights and freedoms, and agency and resistance. We welcome papers that engage with these matters.
Please let us know, if you have any questions or ideas for alternative formats, making & doing sessions.
With best wishes
