Research and Working Groups 

Center for Critical Race and Digital Studies 

The Center for Critical Race and Digital Studies brings together scholars of color from diverse disciplines to investigate and illuminate the myriad ways that digital media technologies and systems, data and dashboards, tools and platforms, users and designers, environments and economies produce new or reproduce existing forms of racial inequality.

Archivists Against History Repeating Itself 

An informal collective of archivists and archival studies scholars seeking to enact structural change and to use traces of the past to interrupt cycles of oppression in the now. Collective members: create and review activities; administer sessions in archives, classrooms and conferences that utilize the activities on the site; suggest readings and links; and help publicize the work of the collective.

STS Research Group 

An interdisciplinary research team comprised of scholars from California Polytechnic State University, Cornell University, University of Rochester, the University of Texas at Austin, and the University of Hawaiʻi. To date, this research team has tackled issues from from data science to artificial intelligence and was awarded a 2016 NSF grant (Award #1632499) to conduct a multi-day workshop on the Social Facets of Data Science.
