Research and Working Groups 

Critical Race and Digital Studies Working Group (2016 – )

The Critical Race and Digital Studies Working Group 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.

STS Research Group (2014 – )

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 Alabama. To date, this research team has tackled issues from from data science to AI and was awarded a 2016 NSF grant (Award #1632499) to conduct a multi-day workshop on the Social Facets of Data Science.
