    Fellows Program


    Data & Society is assembling its fifth class of fellows to join us from
    September 1, 2018. (Please meet our current and past fellows classes here
    <;.) Data & Society works towards a
    future in which the values that shape technology are visible and
    intentionally chosen with respect for human dignity. We conduct
    interdisciplinary research and build a field of actors to ensure that
    knowledge guides development and governance of technology. Our annual
    fellows program helps ensure that new connections and perspectives deepen
    and expand our community’s understanding of the challenges and
    opportunities society faces in a data-centric world.

    Data & Society fellows have pursued academic research, written code,
    created art, brought together communities of activists and practice, run
    workshops, worked closely with Data & Society’s in-house research team and
    each other, and much more. Current and past fellows are academics and
    researchers, artists and activists, coders and technologists, journalists,
    lawyers, and community organizers concerned with the implications of
    data-centric technology’s role in reconfiguring society. We are engaged,
    individually and together, in interrogating and articulating those
    implications and developing frames that can help society address emergent

    The fellowship is intentionally broad and inclusive of a range of output
    and engagement. As we build the 2018-19 class, we’re continuing to embrace
    breadth and diversity, but we are providing some categories to help better
    guide applicants and to ensure fellows are supported within Data &
    Society’s programs and productively connected to others in the Data &
    Society community.
