Please join us for DATA QUE/E/RIES, a public seminar focused on putting forward provocations for ways of thinking about ‘big data’. In particular, we turn to queer perspectives to help us address and unravel some of the assumptions, biases, and limitations of a big data paradigm, and ultimately, envision relations outside of its governing logic.
Brief formal presentations will be complemented by lively discussion. No formal technical training or domain specific knowledge is required. The seminar is aimed at graduate students in particular, however, faculty and undergraduate students are most welcome to attend.
