My research featured by FNR - Luxembourg National Research Fund

FNR featured my research as part of their segment Spotlight on Young Researchers! Read here how I talked about mass digitisation and the importance of empowering critical digital humanities practice


I focus both on using technology and on the processes that generate it, including the historical, social, political, cultural and ethical impact of the digital for research

I was honoured to be interviewed to talk about my research by FNR for their programme Spotlight on Young Researchers. This is a FNR initiative that highlights early-career researchers across the globe with a connection to Luxembourg. In this interview, I talked about urgent issues such as the ethical implications of AI not just for academia but for society at large.

Research has only just started to critically reflect upon the wider repercussions of the digital for society Particularly now that the reassuring promises of neutrality, objectivity, fairness and accuracy have turned out to be illusory

Within these broad challenges, I talked about the urgency of enabling a critical engagement with the digital and how through the fostering of transparency, reproducibility and accountability, humanities scholars can introduce more honest counter-narratives in the wide AI discourse of data neutrality and fairness.
