    Led by activist and educator Stephen Haff, "The Adventures of Kid Quixote" — a student play — is an adaptation of the original "Don Quixote" translated and performed by the Latina/o students of Still Waters in a Storm (Brooklyn, NY). The students retell and perform "Don Quixote" as their own, reimagining the story of an old man in Spain in the late 1500s as a story of Latina/o children living in Brooklyn today.

  • N of Many Ones: Imagining Alternative Data Flows’

    Wednesday, February 20, 2019

    12:00 PM-1:30 PM

    Smart Classroom in the Social Science and Humanities Lab 3101 Market st, room 224

    • Everyone

    Please join the Center for Science, Technology, & Society for the next installment of the Science, Technology & Society Colloquium series for the Winter 18-19 quarter!

    Our visiting guest Dawn Nafus, PhD will be joining us from The User Experience Innovation Lab to present "N of Many Ones: Imagining Alternative Data Flows"

    Ordinarily we think of data aggregation as large stockpiles of data accumulated across vast populations by corporate or state actors. However, data can conceivably aggregate in many ways, along many dimensions that are in fact qualitatively different. This talk draws on ethnographic research on self-tracking practices, where people collect data about themselves and their environment, and practical experience in building an infrastructure for handling self-tracking data. It proposes that when we slow down our imaginations about how data aggregates, we can see glimpses of possibility for multiple forms of knowledge production, politics, and notions of the individual and scale. We can also see how even computationally dense datasets might be reconfigured beyond “large N” populations if appropriate conditions are made available. The talk examines one such possibility, “N of many ones” research, where the relationship between the one and the many--the individual and the population--is explored by expanding the middle ground between intra- and inter-individual data aggregation.

    This event is free and open to the public, lunch will be provided!
