We are happy to announce the publication of a Special Issue of Television & New Media exploring ‘Big Data from the South’. We are particularly proud to share the news with you all because this Special Issue is one of the outcomes of a pre-conference we hosted right before the IAMCR conference in Cartagena in July 2017.

Edited by Stefania Milan (DATACTIVE, University of Amsterdam) and Emiliano Treré (Data Justice Lab, Cardiff University), it features six articles and a commentary, as follows:

Milan/Treré: 'Big Data from the South(s): Beyond Data Universalism’ (Milan/Treré) (>> open access at Nick Couldry and Ulises A. Mejias: Data Colonialism: Rethinking Big Data’s Relation to the Contemporary Subject Paola Ricaurte: Data Epistemologies, The Coloniality of Power, and Resistance
