Big Data and the Power of Narrative

On March 21st and 22nd Catherine presented an early draft of the paper ‘Relating with data: stories of self-monitoring with care’ to the Anthropology of Technology network in Denmark, at their event Big Data and the Power of Narrative. As well as participating with Dorthe Brogard Kristensen and other researchers working on mundane health technologies in a panel on privacy and surveillance, enjoyed great keynotes from Joe Dumit, Minna Ruckenstein and Evelyn Ruppert on how social scientists relate to data scientists and their practices, prompting lots of methodological reflection that we will pick up again at our event in June.
