Webinar on 'Data Surveillance - People in Data'

Activity: Talk or presentation for an academic audienceInvited talk for an academic audience


I have been invited to act as headline speakers for a 90-minute webinar on “Data Surveillance,” co-hosted by the Demos Project and the Digital Scholars Collaboratory at Florida State University, in November 2019. This would be one of a series of three public webinars functioning under the broad rubric of “People in Data,” helping to launch the Demos Project at FSU. This project, a precursor to the proposed Demos Center for Studies in the Data Humanities, fosters and supports scholarship involving structured data around people (the demos) and their environment. In its fully realized form, Demos Center affiliates will examine the representation of individuals and communities in data, ask and answer questions about data in society, and apply humanistic thinking to data-driven problems.
My co-presenters are Anaïs Nony (Postdoctoral Research Associate in Social Change at University of Fort Hare) and Jonathan Zittrain (Professor of Computer Science and of International Law at Harvard University).
The event is organised by Dr. Tarez Samra Graban (Associate Professor of English, Director of Research and Fellowships at the Demos Project, Florida State University (U.S.A.)).
