Angles on Bending Lines: Brian Jefferson on geographic information systems and the war on crime and drugs
online, Boston, USA
In this conversation series, we talk with experts about why we should be careful about geographic information in modern data. How is data collected, and how does it get fixed into categories and numbers? Who gets to own data sets, and who gets to make decisions using them? What sorts of public responsibilities should shape the social lives of data?
A lecture by Brian Jefferson, associate professor of geography at the University of Illinois whose work explores capitalism, digital technology, and the state in urban contexts.
