Data Publics Conference (March 2017)

Data Publics: Investigating the formation and representation of crowds, groups and clusters in digital economies

This DEN co-funded international conference investigated the diverse ways in which publics are, and can be, constituted, provoked, threatened, understood, and represented. This included examining the role played in the formation of publics by new on- and offline infrastructures, data visualisations, social and economic practices, research methods and creative practices, and emerging and future technologies.

Specifically, the event facilitated cross-cutting conversations between designers, social scientists and creative technologists and explores the new challenges and opportunities afforded by thinking and working with “Data Publics”.
