Data=Human. Data=Stories. Data=Justice.
CODE^SHIFT (Collaboratory for Data Equity, Social Healing, Inclusive Futures, and Transformation) is a multidisciplinary “collaboratory” research lab space for communication and data justice. Founded in 2021 at Texas A&M University, it is currently housed in the Newhouse School at Syracuse University. Its goal is to address contemporary social issues (especially relating to race, gender, ethnicity and indigeneity) using data, media, technology, art and storytelling. It is committed to research projects that are collaborative, strategic, action-oriented and equity-minded. We welcome data scientists, social justice researchers, digital humanists, critical scholars, storytellers and activists. Our activities include community-building, collaborative research projects and curriculum and training.
Dr. Srividya “Srivi” Ramasubramanian, Newhouse Professor and Endowed Chair, is the founder and director of CODE^SHIFT. Her expertise is in media literacy, antiracism, data justice, difficult dialogues, community-based research, mixed methods, critical media effects and intersectionality.
