This working group is interested in the intersection between open data technologies, digital humanities and research data practices in Kenya and working on how might we imagine more equitable and inclusive systems of knowledge production and infrastructure by/in/for Kenya. This working group was born out of an event held at McMillan Library on November 12, 2019 and is comprised of researchers, archival specialists, librarians, open data technologists, and government representatives.
