Call for Papers: Journal of Information Ethics

A special journal issue for Fall 2023 will address how identity intersects with data and information ethics.

We welcome articles and columns that touch upon the following questions: How do issues of identity complicate, inflame, or disrupt the dissemination of information? What is the (un)ethical relationship between data and self-embodiment? How do information and data (de)construct individuality online, in business, or in everyday life?

Areas of exploration could include, but are not limited to:

  • The intersection of gender, sexuality, race, and other markers of identity with information/data
  • Algorithmic bias or technological identity politics
  • Consumerism, targeted advertisements, and neoliberalism
  • Social media’s role in misinformation and reality distortion
  • Extended, augmented, or virtual reality’s impact on self-embodiment
