Final day to register for

Dialogues in Data Power, 4th International Data Power Conference, June 22nd

  • June 24th 2022

Online and in person in three locations: the University of Sheffield, Carleton University and the University of Bremen

A three-day in person and online international conference organized by Data Power teams at The University of Sheffield in the UK, Carleton University in Canada and the University of Bremen in Germany.

Conference Dates: 22nd to 24th of June 2022

Venues: It will be possible to participate in the conference online or in person. Conference activities will be hosted for one day in each of these locations:

  • Department of Sociological Studies and Information School in Sheffield, UK

  • School of Journalism and Communication in Ottawa, Canada

  • Centre for Media, Communication and Information Research (ZeMKI) and Institute for Information Management (ifib) in Bremen, Germany.

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 power?
  • What constitute rigorous methods when it comes to researching data power?
  • 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 panels.
