The Sarai Programme, CSDS is organising the Lives of Data Workshop on 5th
to 7th January, 2017.

The workshop examines the historical and emergent conditions of data-driven
knowledge production and circulation in India and South Asia. In the
context of the Data Revolution, the workshop links emerging research on the
history of statistics, new/old technological forms of inscription, digital
infrastructures, and governance after Big Data in India and South Asia.

The workshop brings together interdisciplinary researchers and
practitioners with backgrounds in history of science, anthropology, media
and technology studies, software engineering, data science, economics, and
policy-making. It is a space to parse lateral connections and mine new
ideas to explore the many lives of data, interrogating stable forms and
tracking unexpected pathways.
