Welcome to season 3 of Public Books 101! This season, “Becoming Data,” is produced in partnership with Data & Society, a research institute that studies the social implications of data-centric technologies and automation.
Our host is Natalie Kerby, a media producer, editor, researcher, and currently, the digital content associate at Data & Society.
How long has human life been quantified as data, and in what contexts? What are some major implications of humanity being measured as data? How are people pushing back against the datafication of human life, work, health, and citizenship? With her guests, Natalie will be exploring these questions and more.
