Critical Data Modeling (DCMI)
In this DCMI webinar, Dr Karen Wickett will present critical data modeling: the use of data modeling and systems analysis techniques to build critical interrogations of information systems. Dr Wickett will describe the results of critical data modeling of a police arrest record dataset and discuss how conceptual modeling can help us synthesize critical information studies and identify new opportunities for modeling and critique.
Karen M. Wickett is an Assistant Professor in the School of Information Sciences at the University of Illinois, and is co-chair of the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative (DCMI) Education Committee. Her research areas include information organization, metadata, knowledge organization, and data modeling. Dr Wickett is most interested in the analysis of common concepts and data models in information systems. Examining the assumptions and models behind these systems and artifacts can reveal bias and help us understand the role of information systems in societal oppression.
