Up to 2 PhD Scholarships on the theme of Data Justice may be awarded in the to commence at the University of New South Wales (in Sydney, Australia) in 2019. We welcome Expressions of Interest from qualified applicants with an interest in researching the social justice implications of datafication, with a focus on community impacts.
Expressions of Interest are due before 20 July, 2017 at the following link: https://www.2025.unsw.edu.au/apply/scientia-phd-scholarships/data-justice.
Research theme: Data Justice: Technology, policy and community impact
With growing concerns that data mining, ubiquitous surveillance and automated decision making can unfairly disadvantage already marginalised groups, this research aims to identify policy areas where injustices are caused by data- or algorithm-driven decisions, examine the assumptions underlying these technologies, document the lived experiences of those who are affected, and explore innovative ways to prevent such injustices. Innovative qualitative and digital methods will be used to identify connections across community, policy and technology perspectives on ‘big data’. The project is expected to deepen social engagement with disadvantaged communities, and strengthen global impact in promoting social justice in a datafied world.
