Capstone Conversations: 2022-23 Race & Technology Fellows

“Creating your own terms for how you want to be in the world always has to be done in solidarity with others. That’s why I get so much from these conversations and the fellowship.” – Sareeta Amrute


Data & Society launched these fellowships three years ago to recognize how important questions of race, and analogous concepts like caste, are to studying, developing, and using emerging technologies. This year’s fellows convened interdisciplinary groups to talk through shared analysis and points of difference in their respective fields, devising nuanced ways to engage with the intersections of tech and race.

In these conversations with Fellowship Director Sareeta Amrute, 2022-2023 Race and Technology Fellows Christina Harrington and Lindsey Cameron discuss what drew them to this work, the convenings and connections the program has made possible, and where each of them will take these ideas next.

Read more about this year’s fellows  and our fellowships over the years.

Note: As Data & Society continues to develop and change, so do our programs. We’re hitting pause on our Fellows program for the 2023 – 24 cohort year as we step back and reflect on how fellowships in general — and our fellowship program in particular — connect to our strategy and our research areas and how it might best serve our network going forward. We are so proud of our nine cohorts of fellows for all they’ve done at Data & Society and beyond as they anchor a field of researchers and practitioners that’s growing in size and influence. Stay tuned for more.
