Join us for our next webinar: No statistics are objective: The intersection of quantitative methods and diversity


This presentation will “riff off the shoulders of giants,” and cover a breadth of information in a short time in order to give listeners different views into this complex topic.  Drawing from scholars like Edward Bonilla-Silva, Tukufu Zuberi, Maggie Walter & Chris Andersen the history of quantification of people will be discussed. The work of such scholars as Cathy O’Neil, Safiya Noble, and Virginia Eubanks will be used to illustrate how big data and its algorithms aren’t objective. Joseph Trimble, Cecilia Fisher and others work will be used to discuss how to work more ethically with people. Finally, there will be a discussion of what you can do, now, to think about ways to analyze your data ways that honors all voices, and why quantitative researchers need both position themselves and discuss epistemologies in their writings & presentations.


This webinar is scheduled for April 8, 2019 at 12:00-1:00pm EST
