Lives of Data maps the historical and emergent dynamics of big data, computing, and society in India. It brings together fifteen interdisciplinary scholars and practitioners to set up a collaborative research agenda on computational cultures. Encompassing history, anthropology, science and technology studies (STS), media studies, civic technology, data science, digital humanities, and journalism, the essays open up possibilities for a truly situated global and sociotechnically specific understanding of the many lives of data.
