This program is core to Data & Society’s dual mission of producing rigorous research that can have impact, and supporting and connecting the young but growing field of actors working on the social, cultural, and political effects of data.
Fellows – current and past – are academics, coders, artists, journalists, activists, lawyers, tech industry actors, and community organizers united by both excitement and concern over the implications of data’s increasingly central role in reconfiguring society. We are engaged, individually and together, in building pathways to interrogating and articulating those implications and developing frames that can help society address emergent tensions.
