It seems that data are everywhere – except the times when they aren’t there! Data can sometimes be absent, invisible, gone, not found, missing or simply dead. In a research process these absences and invisibilities can cause disillusionment, confusion, frustration, anxiety, relief, a laugh, and a whole lot of work.
ETHOS Lab will host a workshop to explore how the approaches we take in pedagogical design also tell us about the kind of digital future we want. The many decisions that go into building a learning environment for critical reflection on digital technologies include developing syllabi and learning exercises, creating spaces for formal and informal education, making choices of coding languages in coding clubs, etc.
Our thematic emphasis for 2021 is Limits. 2020, while it loomed ahead of us was a year that connoted the very idea of “the future”, of unlimited potential, of possibility. But as we reflected together as a lab on the past year (hindsight, they say, is 20/20), we saw that it was truly a year of recognizing limits.
We love data and technology in all its forms, figures and cultures. What we love even more, is to write about it. This blog is the outlet of Lab Life – our projects, challenges, reflections and arguments with traits of science and technology studies and feminist theory.
