The Center for Critical Internet Inquiry (C2i2), led by Dr. Safiya Umoja Noble and Dr. Sarah T. Roberts, announced the exciting news that they have received a $2.9M Award to launch the multi-year Minderoo Initiative on Technology and Power initiative:
“This initiative will critically investigate the social impact of digital technologies on communities and the broader public good. It will create new paradigms for the public to understand the harms of tech platforms, predictive technologies, advertising-driven algorithmic content, and the work of digital laborers.”
Congratulations to C2i2 for receiving this award; I'm so excited to be joining C2i2 as a part of their Scholar's Council, which comprises a team of "scholars, artists, activists, and leader who share a commitment to standing up to unjust technologies and systems."
I'm looking forward to working with this amazing group of people to support the development of a better future. Stay tuned!
