The Digital Inequality Lab is a collective of scholars at the University of Michigan committed to using feminist and anti-racist humanities and cultural studies methods to explore the interactions between social structures of power and digital technologies.
The Digital Inequality Lab was founded in the Summer of 2017. We had our first meeting in the Fall of 2017. The lab was founded as a space for graduate students of critical digital media studies at the University of Michigan to collaborate and professionalize. During lab meetings, we have workshopped job market materials, staged mock interviews, and gave one another extensive feedback on the many different types of graduate student writing from prospectuses to article drafts to dissertation chapters. Over the years, the Lab has included students from American Culture, Film, Television, and Media, English, Women’s & Gender Studies, and Communication.
