About this Event
In their new book, Data Feminism, authors Catherine D'Ignazio and Lauren F. Klein outline a new way of thinking about data science and data ethics, informed by the ideas of intersectional feminism. Data Feminism is about much more than gender; it is about power, about who has it and who doesn't, and about how those differentials of power can be challenged and changed.
Catherine D’Ignazio is an Assistant Professor of Urban Science and Planning in the Department of Urban Studies and Planning at MIT, and director of the Data + Feminism Lab.
Lauren F. Klein is an associate professor in the departments of English and Quantitative Theory & Methods at Emory University, where she also directs the Digital Humanities Lab.
