Centre of Governance & Human Rights (CGHR)


CGHR Postdoctoral Scholar

Last term was a very productive one for our Postdoctoral Scholar Sebastián Lehuedé! In November, he attended the Association of Internet Researchers (AoIR) conference in Dublin, where he received the Best Dissertation Award (photo) for his doctoral thesis on decolonial approaches to data governance. Last month Sebastián was also invited by Medialab Madrid to present latest research on digital infrastructure and environmental activism. In Michaelmas Term, Sebastián taught the postgraduate paper Technology & Global Social Justice at POLIS, in which students discussed issues such as platform labour and algorithmic injustice from decolonial, feminist, Indigenous and other perspectives. Sebastián shared the syllabus online, which you can find here. Finally, the Tapuya: Science, Technology and Society journal published Sebastián and Marcela Suárez’s (Freie Universitat Berlin) co-edited special volume on ‘The Terrestrial Internet’. You can find the introductory article here. We are looking forward to hearing more about Sebastián’s current research on digital and environmental rights in Latin America!
