The first of two seminars focusing on a variety of papers addressing vital conceptual, methodological and practical hands on approaches to data feminism. 11th of October 14.00 - 16.00

The Coordination for Gender Research at the  University of Copenhagen is hosting two seminars focusing on data feminism in October 2021. 

The aim of the two seminars: Data Feminism I and II,  is to  provide an interdisciplinary forum and to inspire new research and research perspectives in the field from various approaches and practices. How  does provision of new data feed into existing  research practices and ideas of diversity and gender equality? Is it possible to collect and organize data collections in ways that support new forms of equality and democratic governance. All in all the two seminars: Data Feminism I and II  address  the growing interest in combining data science and gender and diversity studies as well as the emerging interest in introducing gender and diversity in data science studies. They will feature paper presentations by leading scholars in the field on vital conceptual, methodological and practical  approaches.
