  1. Doing Data Differently? Developing Personal Data Tactics and Strategies Amongst Young Mobile Media Users.Luci Pangrazio & Neil Selwyn - 2018 - Big Data and Society 5 (1).
    Large amounts of personal data are generated through young people’s engagements with mobile media, with these data increasingly used by advertisers, content developers and other third parties to profile, predict and position individuals. This has prompted growing concerns over the ability of mobile media users to develop informed stances towards how and why their data is being used, i.e. to build ‘conscious’ and/or ‘resistant’ forms of ‘data agency’. This paper explores ways of developing the critical consciousness and resistant practices of (...)

  • The Social Imaginaries of Data Activism.Minna Ruckenstein & Tuukka Lehtiniemi - 2018 - Big Data and Society 6 (1).
    Data activism, promoting new forms of civic and political engagement, has emerged as a response to problematic aspects of datafication that include tensions between data openness and data ownership, and asymmetries in terms of data usage and distribution. In this article, we discuss MyData, a data activism initiative originating in Finland, which aims to shape a more sustainable citizen-centric data economy by means of increasing individuals' control of their personal data. Using data gathered during long-term participant-observation in collaborative projects with (...)

  • From Data Politics to the Contentious Politics of Data.Stefania Milan & Davide Beraldo - 2019 - Big Data and Society 6 (2).
    This article approaches the paradigm shift of datafication from the perspective of civil society. Looking at how individuals and groups engage with datafication, it complements the notion of “data politics” by exploring what we call the “contentious politics of data”. By contentious politics of data we indicate the bottom-up, transformative initiatives interfering with and/or hijacking dominant processes of datafication, contesting existing power relations or re-appropriating data practices and infrastructure for purposes distinct from the intended. Said contentious politics of data is (...)

  • Trust and Privacy in the Context of User-Generated Health Data.Brandon Williams, Eliot Storer, Charles Lotterman, Rachel Conrad Bracken, Svetlana Borodina & Kirsten Ostherr - 2017 - Big Data and Society 4 (1).
    This study identifies and explores evolving concepts of trust and privacy in the context of user-generated health data. We define “user-generated health data” as data captured through devices or software and used outside of traditional clinical settings for tracking personal health data. The investigators conducted qualitative research through semistructured interviews with researchers, health technology start-up companies, and members of the general public to inquire why and how they interact with and understand the value of user-generated health data. We found significant (...)
