Through this panel, we will explore questions such as:
1. How can we use computational methods and digital technologies to measure, map, and challenge various forms of inequality and injustice?
2. How can computational methods and digital technologies be disentangled from the infrastructures of state and financial power that reproduce social, economic, and spatial injustice?
3. How can we use computational methods and digital technologies to develop alternative visions of the future that challenge the dominant systems of power and exploitation?
