Data Feminism

Jun 06, 2019

This book was mentioned by Kathleen Fitzpatrick during her discussion today. I haven't read it but a quick look through the chapter descriptions suggests that I should. The book captures a trend in thinking that looks at data as not abstract and based in reason alone but embodied and based in questions of context, power, community and relationships. " The products of data science are the work of many hands. Unfortunately, though, we tend not to credit the many hands who perform this work." P.S. I like the open book format with comments (even if the comment period is closed).
