(Passcode: 6804)

Faculty Reading Group led by Prof. Libby Hemphill on the book, “Data Feminism” by Catherine D’Ignazio and Lauren F. Klein. The group’s goals are to read and discuss research, develop research collaborations, and eventually seek funding for future work.
Libby Hemphill, Director, Resource Center for Minority Data, ICPSR; Research Associate Professor, Institute for Social Research; Associate Professor, School of Information:

“Following the U-M Data Science Annual Symposium 2020 keynote on Data Feminism, I’m working to start a virtual faculty reading group on Data Feminism (both the book and the broader ideas). Like the keynote, the group is co-sponsored by the Institute for Research on Women and Gender and the Michigan Institute for Data Science. The group’s goals are to read and discuss research, develop research collaborations, and eventually seek funding for future work.

If you’re interested in participating in the reading group, please join the list/group on MCommunity.  The group will start meeting regularly in January. You should buy (or download) and start reading the book if you haven’t already.”
