Robert Porter

 

Robert Porter recently graduated from the University of York (UK) with an M.A. in Public history, which explored both private and public participation in cultural production and representation. He has since focused his research and writing on cultural, historical, and technological issues facing society. He supports his passions of photography and cultural history through work in proposal writing, communications policy with the eQuality Project, and research with Big Data Surveillance - focusing on the ways in which Big Data and the use of algorithms leads to discrimination of vulnerable individuals and groups.
