Public Lecture: Queer Data – Who Counts?By Dr Kevin Guyan (University of Glasgow)
Wed 19 Apr 2023
5:00pm - 6:00pm
Data has never mattered more. Our lives are increasingly shaped by it and how it is defined, collected and used. But who counts in the collection, analysis and application of data?
Dr Kevin Guyan (University of Glasgow) will discuss key themes from his book Queer Data: Using Gender, Sex and Sexuality Data for Action (Bloomsbury Academic) including the relationship between data and visibility, the politics of who and how to count, and how data biases are used to delegitimise the everyday experiences of queer communities.
