The Final Programme for

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

is now available here.

Lancaster University, March 31 / April 1 & 2, 2017

This conference will investigate the diverse ways in which publics are, and can be, constituted, provoked, threatened, understood, and represented. This includes 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 will facilitate cross-cutting conversations between designers, social scientists and creative technologists to explore the new challenges and opportunities afforded by thinking and working with “Data Publics”.
