Center for Digital Society and Data Studies

We bring together a diverse range of scholars to tackle questions that are driven by the rapid changes in our sociotechnological, data-intensive worlds.

“Working in digital archiving to help preserve our planetary biodiversity and to give access to science research is energizing. As a data organization specialist, I recognize that this work is crucial to research repositories such as medical and atmospheric sciences.”
