(POSTPONED)Data Justice 2020

This two-day event explores the relationship between datafication and participation. Hosted by the Data Justice Lab at Cardiff University’s School of Journalism, Media and Culture (JOMEC), it will bring together international scholars, practitioners, activists, and community groups to discuss the possibilities and challenges of civic participation in a datafied society.

The conference will include both scholarly contributions and workshops with civil society, practitioners and impacted communities in order to facilitate and advance knowledge exchange. We therefore welcome alternative formats and ideas. Themes for submissions include (but are not limited to):

  • Citizen juries, assemblies and audits
  • Participatory data governance and oversight
  • Data commons and co-operatives
  • Data activism and resistance
  • Participatory design and design justice
  • Digital and human labour in data
  • Participation, exploitation and coercion
  • Geopolitics of participation
