Data, Democracy and the Human Story: A Conversation with Members of Deep Lab

November 5, 2015

In the first installment of our series, “Data, Democracy and the Human Story,” we examined how data science is shedding new light on “human” topics, like romantic attraction and racial bias. Now, join us as we discuss the ways that the arts and humanities might provide a way to negotiate some of the critical contemporary issues raised by technology.

In the second installment of this series, we’ll talk with three members of Deep Lab, a collaborative group of cyberfeminist researchers, artists, writers, engineers and cultural producers engaged in ongoing critical assessments of contemporary digital culture.

Simone Browne, Ingrid Burrington, and Allison Burtch will discuss how their work as artists, critics and members of the Deep Lab collective engages with issues of privacy, security and surveillance. We’ll also release the first issue of a three-volume chapbook set accompanying the program series, including new work from Allison alongside contributions from Simone, Ingrid and selected Chicago-area artists. Join us for a free copy of this limited-edition publication and an engaging, interactive conversation.

This program is co-sponsored by the Loyola University Chicago School of Communication, presented in conjunction with their Fifth Annual International Symposium on Digital Ethics, and is supported in part by the Robert R. McCormick Foundation.

Free, open to the public.  RSVP is required.

Funded project of the Illinois Humanities Council.  The Illinois Humanities Council is a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
