Data & Society can set the table, but what really makes things shine, what makes for this incredible feast that we’ve all been partaking in, are the fellows. What happens when you bring fellows together who have rich, deep expertise and experience in race, caste, and indigeneity?
— Sareeta Amrute
In this conversation with Principal Researcher and Fellowship Director Sareeta Amrute, 2021 – 2022 Fellows Chaz Arnett, Tamara K. Nopper, and Murali Shanmugavelan, and Postdoctoral Researcher Tiara Roxanne reflect on their experience at Data & Society during the second year of a global pandemic.
They discuss how they built an intellectual and interpersonal community beyond the contexts of institutions and identities — by honing methods, expanding frameworks of understanding, developing curricula, curating panels, and swapping recipes.
