Data Feminism Book Club Meetup

Data Feminism Book Club Meetup

About the Book Club

This interactive, dialogue-driven meetup co-hosted by UC Davis will explore applying feminist theory and critique to how we work with data and perform research. How do structures of power and oppression shape the data we collect, analyses we perform, and research insights we develop? Together we will reflect on selected chapters from the book Data Feminism by Catherine D’Ignazio and Lauren Klein. The book can be freely accessed online here: https://data-feminism.mitpress.mit.edu/. In advance of the meetup participants should read Chapter 6: The Numbers Don’t Speak for Themselves and at least skim the book’s introduction. Come prepared to apply takeaways from the readings to unpacking provided case studies from the health sciences, and your own research processes. Researchers from all domains are welcome to participate. Together we’ll brainstorm how as individuals and a community we can contribute to more equitable data-driven research.
