April 2019


No April Fools!

This month, we welcome back Marie to the lab! We are also having our first Pitch & Play of the semester, where our Junior Researchers will present their research and receive feedback. Our GDPR: Deletion Poems chapbook has been receiving a lot of attention, and we are planning to start parcelling up and distributing the many requested, limited, copies this week. ETHOS Lab's GDPR adventure has been a long one! We are also getting ready to welcome Sarah Blacker and to celebrate IoT Day once again; this time in the company of Bear & Co.

All the best,

Decelerating Toxicology: A conversation with Sarah Blacker

Building on the ETHOS Lab theme for 2019 “Decelerate”, this discussion focuses on Indigenous Traditional Knowledge and First Nations’ approaches to data production on environmental contamination from the oil industry in Alberta, Canada. Dr. Blacker’s work explores a collaboration between Indigenous and non-Indigenous toxicologists, focusing on the intentional deceleration that took place in this collaboration in order to allow incompatible forms of data and knowledge to speak to one another.
