    Breakdown in the Smart City: Exploring Workarounds with Urban-Sensing Practices and Technologies.Helen Pritchard, Jennifer Gabrys & Lara Houston - 2019 - Science, Technology, and Human Values 44 (5):843-870.
    Smart cities are now an established area of technological development and theoretical inquiry. Research on smart cities spans from investigations into its technological infrastructures and design scenarios, to critiques of its proposals for citizenship and sustainability. This article builds on this growing field, while at the same time accounting for expanded urban-sensing practices that take hold through citizen-sensing technologies. Detailing practice-based and participatory research that developed urban-sensing technologies for use in Southeast London, this article considers how the smart city as (...)

    Smart Forests and Data Practices: From the Internet of Trees to Planetary Governance.Jennifer Gabrys - 2020 - Big Data and Society 7 (1).
    Environments are increasingly becoming technologized sites of data production. From smart cities to smart forests, digital networks are analyzing and joining up environmental processes. This commentary focuses on one such understudied smart environment, smart forests, as emerging digital infrastructures that are materializing to manage and mitigate environmental change. How does the digitalization of forests not only change understandings of these environments but also generate different practices and ontologies for addressing environmental change? I first analyze smart forests within the expanding area (...)

    Practicing, Materialising and Contesting Environmental Data.Jennifer Gabrys - 2016 - Big Data and Society 3 (2).
    While there are now an increasing number of studies that critically and rigorously engage with Big Data discourses and practices, these analyses often focus on social media and other forms of online data typically generated about users. This introduction discusses how environmental Big Data is emerging as a parallel area of investigation within studies of Big Data. New practices, technologies, actors and issues are concretising that are distinct and specific to the operations of environmental data. Situating these developments in relation (...)

    Sensors and Sensing Practices: Reworking Experience Across Entities, Environments, and Technologies.Jennifer Gabrys - 2019 - Science, Technology, and Human Values 44 (5):723-736.
    This editorial examines how sensing practices are transforming through proliferating sensor technologies and altered sensing relations. Rather than engage with sensing as a project of the human mind or body as usually delineated within sensory classifications, this overview of sensors and sensing practices documents how sensing entities are emerging that are composed of shifting ensembles of multiple humans and more-than-humans, environments and technologies, politics and practices. By decoupling sensing from its exclusive human orientation, the editorial and collection demonstrate how reworked (...)

    For the World, Not of the World: Isabelle Stengers: Thinking with Whitehead: A Free and Wild Creation of Concepts. Translated by Michael Chase. Cambridge, MA: Harvard University Press, 2011, 531pp, $52.50, £38.95, €47.50 HB.Jennifer Gabrys - 2014 - Metascience 23 (3):513-516.
    The work of Alfred North Whitehead has been undergoing something of a resurgence over the last decade, and Isabelle Stengers’ Thinking with Whitehead: A Free and Wild Creation of Concepts has played a not inconsiderable role in bringing his work into wider circulation. Originally written as Penser avec Whitehead:Une libre et sauvage création de concepts in 2002, this 2011 English translation makes Stengers’ account of Whitehead available for an even wider readership. In the process of this renewed engagement with Whitehead, (...)
