This winter term 2022/2023 we present to you our 8th round of RUSTlab Lectures. Come and join us on-site at the RUSTlab in Bochum or tune in live via ZOOM, Thursdays from 16:15-17:45 hrs (for the last lecture 14:15-15:45 hrs) UTC+2 (convert time) for exciting talks and discussions around this term’s guiding theme: Data at work

Each professional field has its own ways in which they produce and process data. Even in the sciences, what counts as data – and when – differs highly from discipline to discipline. Data are also put to work in professional settings. They have agency and work upon work – and other – practices. The 2022-2023 winter series of the RUSTlab lectures will address data at work both in terms of data in professional settings and in terms of data’s agency.

List of the speakers for the winter term 2022/2023:
