This article has been published by Craig M Dalton, Linnet Taylor, and Jim Thatcher. ‘Critical Data Studies: A dialog on data and space’. In: In: Big Data & Society, Vol 3 (2016), Issue 1, pp.1—9.

Abstract:
In light of recent technological innovations and discourses around data and algorithmic analytics, scholars of many stripes are attempting to develop critical agendas and responses to these developments (Boyd and Crawford 2012). In this mutual interview, three scholars discuss the stakes, ideas, responsibilities, and possibilities of critical data studies. The resulting dialog seeks to explore what kinds of critical approaches to these topics, in theory and practice, could open and make available such approaches to a broader audience.
