This course examines the issue of justice in regard to data and the gathering, processing, and utilization of such data. Decision-making and resource allocation are significantly influenced by the methods of data collection, visualization, and analysis.
Students will interact with important texts in media and communication studies as well as research from STS, anthropology, history, and other fields in this course. Students will explore the complex challenges surrounding data justice, such as power imbalances, bias and discrimination, privacy and surveillance, and the role of data in social and economic injustice, through a combination of theoretical texts, case studies, and interactive discussions. The importance of data as a crucial battleground for social justice and inclusion in the digital era will be critically understood by the students.
