The aim of the Data Studies Group is to facilitate interdisciplinary research collaboration amongst faculty, postdocs, and advanced graduate students from across Penn State, around projects that take a critical perspective toward datadatafication, and digital life. Here I mean “critical” in the academic sense—i.e., taking data and datafication as objects of analysis and investigation. Everyone thinking about and working on related issues, skeptically or enthusiastically, are encouraged to participate.
Meetings will be scheduled for one hour and the format will involve a short (15-20 minute) presentation, followed by feedback and discussion. Presenters might discuss nascent research ideas, works-in-progress, technical demos and explainers, or proposals for grant funding. They will have the option to circulate drafts beforehand, but doing so will not be required.
The Data Studies Group is part of the Rock Ethics Institute’s Engineering, Technology, and Ethics research initiative. For more information, contact Daniel Susser at daniel.susser@psu.edu
