digital HKS is a Harvard Kennedy School initiative at the Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy that is committed to supporting students and alumni interested in exploring conversations and opportunities in digital technology in the public interest.
digital HKS events consist of either co-hosted events or one off 'special' events. An example of a one-time 'special' event is Before Algorithms: A History of Bias and Oppression in Computing (Nov 8, 2018).
digital HKS programs are developed in partnership with an HKS department, center, or community initiative. Now in it's second year, Data & Donuts is a monthly learning and discussion group that offers a welcoming space to engage critically with issues of data and society (co-hosted with HKS Library & Knowledge Services). Signup for the Data & Donuts mailing list (email Alessandra Seiter, Knowledge Services Librarian).
