In their commentary, Ruppert, Isin and Bigo propose an understanding of ‘data politics’ as a field of knowledge and power. They argue that worlds, subjects, and rights are the conditions of possibility of this field and that understanding these conditions is necessary to critically intervene in deployments of data. Towards building a critical scholarship on data politics, BD&S welcomes the submission of original research articles that engage with this framing. Articles will go through the Journal’s  peer review process and if accepted published on the Data Politics special theme page. The call will be open until July 2018.
