Enacting border security in the digital age:
POLITICAL WORLDS OF DATA FORMS, FLOWS AND FRICTIONS
Enacting border security in the digital age: political worlds of data forms, flows and frictions (SECURITY FLOWS) is a five-year Consolidator Grant funded by the European Research Council. The project proposes to analyse how datafication, the process of transforming our everyday lives into quantifiable digital data, is also transforming borders today. The project develops a novel interdisciplinary framework to understand how data is generated, exchanged and contested in border encounters, and to investigate the complex epistemic, practical, political and ethical implications of these transformations.
Join OUR team
We are hiring a Research Associate with expertise in digital methods to join our Security Flows team. The project analyses the epistemic, political, practical and ethical implications of the increased production of data and data analytics for border security. The post holder will be working with Professor Claudia Aradau to use digital methods for text analysis and visualisation, and to support the development of a web app with external developers. This is an exciting opportunity for interdisciplinary research with and about data.
