The Data Power Conference hosts critical reflections on data's power and the
social, political, economic and cultural consequences of data's increasing
presence in our lives, workplaces, and societies. The most recent conference
in 2019 focused on the specific theme of global in/security. The 4th Data
Power Conference, in June 2022, returns to some of the fundamental questions
that underpinned the founding of the conference. It is conceived as a series
of dialogues, dialogues about over-arching concerns and with disciplines and
stakeholders working with and on data. In particular, the conference will
reflect on:

*	How can stakeholders be engaged in critical conversations about data
*	What constitute rigorous methods when it comes to researching data
*	To what extent does critical data power research need to focus on
specific instances of data power in action? What contributions can more
generalised critiques make to our field?

The conference includes over 130 presenters from across the globe in 35
