On the first day of the workshop, a curated, interdisciplinary panel of FAT researchers engages in a deconstruction exercise that aims at making visible how practices of computing are entrenched in power relations in complex and multi-layered ways. The second day of the workshop will be open to other participants and will showcase how we used deconstruction and discuss first results of the previous day.
