Scholars: @datasociety announced calls for 2019 postdocs and faculty fellows: https://t.co/RIcc3Kj8uM (and more researcher openings coming soon). These are fantastic opportunities for scholars looking to dig deep into issues at the intersection of tech and society!— danah boyd (@zephoria) November 8, 2018
Data & Society is a research institute in New York City that is focused on the social and cultural issues arising from data-centric and automated technologies. The issues that Data & Society seeks to address are complex. The same innovative technologies and sociotechnical practices that are reconfiguring society – enabling novel modes of interaction, new opportunities for knowledge, and disruptive business paradigms – can be abused to invade people’s privacy, provide new tools of discrimination, and harm individuals and communities.
