Date: November 12, 2019
Venue: McMillan Memorial Library, Banda Street
Time: 9 am – 3 pm

This event is led by Angela Okune and Leonida Mutuku. It brings together researchers, archival specialists, open data technologists, and government representatives to think about the intersection between open data technologies, digital humanities and research data practices in Kenya.

How might we imagine more equitable and inclusive systems of knowledge production and infrastructure by/in/for Kenya? Three panel sessions explore how diverse institutions have attempted to support student interests in research and archiving; raise questions about the genre of the academic journal article for scholarly knowledge sharing; and dive into the politics and geographies of data localisation and governance.Key discussion points from the meeting will be synthesised into a report for public dissemination and will include concrete next steps.

Participation is free and registration is open until 5 pm on 7th November 2019: here
