Hosted by the Digital Ethnography Research Centre (DERC) at RMIT University
Convened by Sarah Pink, Deborah Lupton and Deb Verhoeven
The first symposium of the Digital Data and Society Consortium seeks to create a new forum in Australia for the sharing and exchange of research in the HASS fields that concerns digital data. Our focus for the first event will be on the social life of data, but will in doing so attend to the social as inextricable from materialities, politics and ethics. Our aim is to bring together new research in this field for consortium members to present and discuss, towards consolidating, developing and establishing key research agendas and impact relating to the future of digital data in Australia and beyond. Attendees will include consortium members and key guests invited by consortium members.
The symposium will be followed by a short Consortium members’ business meeting to discuss and plan next steps and future activities.
