Digital Justice Lab Workshop: Mapping Data Bodies

December 5 @ 6:00 pm

| Free for Members

From the apps we use on our devices to the surveillance systems on city streets, we live in a datafied world, in which information about us is being collected on a daily basis. In this workshop, we will navigate the impact of datafication to form a better understanding of our “data bodies” and how they are used, stored and shared by governments and corporations.
