16:00 – 17:00 Keynote lecture by Lauren F. Klein: Data Feminism
Lauren F. Klein is an associate professor in the departments of English and Quantitative Theory & Methods at Emory University, where she also directs the Digital Humanities Lab. In her book Data Feminism (available online here:, together with Catherine D’Ignazio she presents a new way of thinking about data science and data ethics that is informed by the ideas of intersectional feminism. They offer strategies for data scientists seeking to learn how feminism can help them work toward justice, and for feminists who want to focus their efforts on the growing field of data science. Importantly, Data Feminism is about much more than gender. It is about power, about who has it and doesn't, and about how those differentials of power can be challenged and changed. More information about Lauren F. Klein can be found on her website,
