DescriptionRecognition plays a crucial role in cross-boundary identity formation of individuals and groups and it is a central feature in social struggles. What social theories of recognition overlook though is the role of media, technology and communication. Therefore, this pre-conference aims to (1) update social theories of recognition by acknowledging its mediated and datafied nature and (2) to advance post-disciplinary debates on identity formation and (mis)representation, metricised and datafied recognition, and questions of social justice.
