 “Data, Media, Mind” combines a long-term focus on the material culture and epistemologies of personal data with a keen interest in pushing the boundaries of history of science further towards a history of knowledge by engaging with media studies and the histories of bureaucracy, with the social, human, and cognitive sciences, and with citizen science. At the same time, the project aims to open new avenues for research in which media studies, the history of data, and the history of the social and human sciences cross-fertilize.
