Call for abstracts:

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 most recent conference in 2019 focused on the specific theme of global in/security. The 4th Data Power Conference, in June 2022, returns to some of the fundamental questions that underpinned the founding of the conference. It is conceived as a series of dialogues, dialogues about overarching concerns and with disciplines and stakeholders working with and on data. In particular, the conference will reflect on:

  *   How can stakeholders be engaged in critical conversations about data power?
  *   What constitutes rigorous methods when it comes to researching data power?
  *   To what extent does critical data power research need to focus on specific instances of data power in action? What contributions can more generalized critiques make to our field?

To facilitate dialogues across disciplines and with stakeholders, we welcome papers, panels and roundtable dialogues 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, panels and roundtable dialogues that engage with these matters.

There will be a keynote speaker on each of the three conference days, details to be confirmed.

Information on abstracts & papers

  *   Whilst we welcome papers and session proposals of all kinds, please note that this conference focuses on critical questions about data’s power and also papers that are critical and/or reflective with regards to the social and cultural consequences of the rise of data’s power.

  *   The deadline for abstracts is 15th January 2022.
