Untitled-11 Anna Lauren Hoffman

Anna Lauren Hoffmann is a trans woman and scholar working at the intersections of information, technology, culture, and ethics. She is currently a postdoctoral researcher with the School of Information at the University of California, Berkeley. Anna’s work explores issues in information, data, and ethics, with particular attention to the ways in which discourses, design, and uses of information technology can promote or hinder the pursuit of social justice. In particular, she is interested in how the standards and categories imposed on the world through data, information, and technological systems (or the ways we talk about them) can discriminate by supporting the development of self-respect for some and hindering its development for others. In addition, she is interested in the history and development research ethics and professional codes of ethics.
