Designing and operationalizing a civic data infrastructure in Atlanta's westside neighborhoods

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


My doctoral research aims to understand if civic data infrastructures can be designed and operationalized to serve the data equity and advocacy needs of minoritized communities. I do this using a combination of participatory and ethnographic research methods to investigate the infrastructural elements of the Communities Who Know Data Dashboard. This research will be useful to both designers and users of civic data infrastructures as it will account for the socio, material, political, organizational and technological elements that are necessary for a community to learn, use and build civic data infrastructures that best serve their needs.
