The Data Politics Lab explores how data is generative of new forms of power relations and social transformations.
To understand these transformations the lab investigates the social, economic and cultural implications of digital technologies and promotes critical interventions in theory and practice.
The lab’s activities are organised around the following four themes:
The areas of research and debate include (but are not limited to): algorithmic governance, data democracy, digital labour and capitalism, power asymmetries in the digital realm, prediction and the politics of pre-emptive analytics, algorithmic (in)equality, data-related activism, feminist data practices, decolonial data politics, and new forms of identity/collectivity on social media.
