Interactive Data Feminism Workshop

HU Berlin:  Interactive workshop series on the topic of Data Feminism in WS 2020/21.

Following the topics and format of the book “Data Feminism” by Catherine D’Ignazio and Lauren F. Klein, the series will consist of four sessions, in which participants will be introduced to feminist perspectives in Library and Information Science.

The aim of the workshop series is to reflect and discuss feminism in information science (with a special emphasis on data science) and to create a space for exchange about our (future) work.

  • Which perspective might be missing in a statistic?
  • Whose perspective is reflected by an information collection or a technology?
  • What can we do to be more integrative in data and information science?
  • Whose voice is heard?

The interactive workshop sessions will encourage discussions on how we can make critically reflected and conscious decisions about information, data and data processing in the future.

The workshops will take place once a month in WS 2020/21 as an online event on the following dates:

  • Thursday, 19.11.2020, 6pm - 7:30pm

  • Thursday, 17.12.2020, 6pm - 7:30pm

  • Thursday, 21.01.2021, 6pm - 7:30pm

  • Thursday, 25.02.2021, 6pm - 7:30pm

Each session will focus on particular sections of the book “Data Feminism” by Catherine D'Ignazio and Lauren F. Klein. It is available as an Open Access edition at https://data-feminism.mitpress.mit.edu/. And of course we will provide additional readings and other materials throughout the semester.

The workshop series will be held in English and is supported by the Frauenförderung an der Philosophischen Fakultät.
