Book launch: “We, The Data” with Wendy H. Wong (In-person)

October 20, 2023 @ 3:30 pm 6:30 pm

As we go about our lives, we are co-creating data through what we do. And while our data-intensive world is here to stay, does it come at the cost of our humanity in terms of autonomy, community, dignity, and equality? Wendy H. Wong’s new book, We, The Data: Human Rights in the Digital Age (MIT Press, 2023), calls for an extension of human rights as current policies do not reflect our experiences in the era of datafication. Join Wong for an in-person event exploring the insights in her book.
