Learning objectives
This course intends to offer key instruments for critically reflecting on Datafication - understood as a process that is gradually affecting both market-oriented services (i.e. Airbnb, Uber etc.) and public services (such as education and health) - by pushing students to debate on what is inscribed in commercial platforms that are increasingly impacting upon our everyday lives.
