Project Principal Investigator Dr Ayona Datta was invited to give a presentation at the Digital Geographies Working Group Annual Symposium ‘Justice and the Digital’ at the Interdisciplinary Centre of the Social Sciences (ICOSS), University of Sheffield on July 6th 2018.
The symposium aimed to explore ideas such as digital (in-)visibilities, voice/voicelessness online, data ethics and data justice, digital divides in access and affordability, uneven digital literacies, justice and inclusion in digitally mediated/smart cities and using digital forms of protest to address social and environmental (in-)justice, featuring panels with high-profile researchers and practitioners as well as three participatory strands of talks, ‘digital shorts’, from members at all career stages, and discussions.
The strands were:
1) Citizenship, Protest and the Digital
2) Data, Justice and the Smart City
3) Justice and Global Digital Inequalities
