Infrastructural Interactions

Helen V. Pritchard, Miriyam Aouragh, Seda Gürses and Femke Snelting have been awarded a grant for £10,000 from the HDI EPSRC Network plus for “Infrastructural Interactions” a transdisciplinary research initiative working with activists (specifically groups organising with refugees and around Anti-Racist, Trans, and Queer work), artists and technologists  to ask how they are mobilising creative forms of organising and inventive methods to ensure that data infrastructures can support their practices instead of extracting from it. As part of the grant we will be welcoming Yasmine Boudiaf to i-DAT as a research assistant and Femke Snelting as a research fellow.
