Keynote: Technology in Society: In Conversation with Meredith Broussard and David Nemer
In this year’s keynote, DLF Data and Digital Scholarship Working Group co-convener Sara Mannheimer will host a conversation with data journalist Meredith Broussard and anthropologist and media scholar David Nemer. The conversation will focus on how technology affects society—who creates technology, who it is designed for, who uses it, how technology benefits society, how technology can perpetuate bias and inequality, and how GLAM practitioners can support responsible technology use in our daily work.
