Kate Crawford


I'm a Principal Researcher at Microsoft Research (Social Media Collective), a Visiting Professor at the MIT Center for Civic Media, a Senior Fellow at the Information Law Institute at NYU, and an Associate Professor at the University of New South Wales.

I research how people engage with networked technologies, and analyse the political, cultural, legal, philosophical and policy-making implications. I'm interested in how networked data becomes part of our understanding of knowledge, power, democracy, ethics and subjectivity. My first book 'Adult Themes' was through Pan Macmillan, and I'm currently working on a new book.
