As a matter of fact, most of the highly alphabetically literate people in the world are, at present, data illiterate individuals living in datafied societies. They do produce data all the time, but have no idea what Open Data9 repositories can do for democracy or how social media APIs10 can be tapped into research in the social sciences or the humanities. A view of DL as a set of social practices should not trick us into thinking about neatly segregated skills and scripts that can be learned or used in isolation, though.
As was the case with the digital literacies we began to be concerned with in the s, it is important to realize that every literacy, seen as a social practice, is a network of other literacies BUZATO, ; ; To sum it up, engaging with society "through or about data" refers to organized citizens taking advantage of datafication to "change things" through access to open data, appropriation of data analytics and visualization techniques, and even managing and selling their own data, in pretty much the same way a community of organic farmers can grow and profit from food in an ethical, sustainable way.
This alluring picture is, up to a certain extent, analogous to previous naive discourses about "digital inclusion". But, as we now realize, the fact that most of us quickly got "digitally included" as computers and smartphones became 9 Open data is " data that can be freely used, re-used and redistributed by anyone - subject only, at most, to the requirement to attribute and share alike" DIETRICH et al, It abides by the same general "open" principles as open software, i.
Open or public APIs are published on the Internet and shared freely by developers who want to write programs that work inside other programs or use data collected by other applications. In fact, we are far more "BD-included" today than we realize, but mostly by unwittingly supplying data about our daily lives of which the potential meanings or worth we are not aware, and to companies we've never heard about.
This is but one reason why we should invest in "critical digital literacies" as a research object and a teaching objective.
From datafication to Critical Data Studies Critical Data Studies henceforth CDS is a young interdisciplinary field devoted to approaching datafication and BD though voices alternative to the tech-centered, marketing- oriented voices of the "Big Data evangelists".
Although many CDS practitioners are sociologists or philosophers, the field is open to practitioners from any discipline. Dalton and Thatcher , for example, are geographers who argue we must pose a series of crucial interdisciplinary questions about BD.
For instance, how do people resist aspects of BD?
In addition, assuming that "data is never raw", they suggest we need to investigate what is quantified, stored, sorted and what is neglected or discarded and why. This is, of course, analogous to our customary questions about texts, the choices made by text authors and what is silenced when a text gives voice to something else.
Dalton and Thatcher also ask self-reflexive questions that are fit for all of those involved in CDS: what, in their praxis as geographers, can contribute to a critical approach to BD? They conclude that, among other contributions, geographers are used to dealing with a broad range of approaches and mixed methods research designs that can help counterbalance the radically quantitative, neo-positivistic bias of DS.
This is another way of saying what, in their language, they put this way: DS should not be limited to studying space — i. But, since "applied" for us also means privileging place over space, an important contribution from our field to CDS would be the establishment of situated and critical data literacies henceforth CDL as a research object and an educational objective in our field. Possibly, by using the object as an instrument, experimenting with it and, then, engaging in critical reflection about the experience.
That does not mean that we are supposed to engage in research and teaching of DL subserviently nor monologically. Like geographers, the practitioners in our field have experience with mixed method designs and qualitative approaches that can not only be associated with and counterpoised to positivistic data analytics, but also help DS practitioners and ourselves develop a sense of reflexivity in their own fields BUZATO, This means that, yes, ideally, we should use what BD and DV have to offer for the purposes of our own research — e.
Apart from that, ethonographic-qualitative research on BD, DL and DV as situated social practices is needed so that we gain understanding of how, in practice, the world and the words whether actual words, of pictures, numbers, dots, colors etc. Ideally, we should be able to carry out ethnographies of data labs, interview data scientists, go to data analytics and data visualization conferences to observe the discussions and negotiations of meanings among the "natives", and so on.
Likewise, we should learn about "data agencies" in the communities of "ordinary people". What kinds of data does the community produce? To whom do the data belong? What do they mean locally and to DS team? What meanings can a community make of their data, given sufficient cognitive and technological means are available?
How do thoses meanings relate to the situated meanings of their everyday discursive practices? Final Remarks On ending this chapter, I would like to suggest possible steps towards introducing CDL both as object and as instrument in applied language and literacy studies postgraduate programs. An obvious first step is to bring BD, DV and DL to the syllabuses and research agendas, an endeavor to which this chapter itself is meant to contribute. Right now, most of the DL- related literature is authored by mathematics educators, engineers and business people, and there are often interesting language and literacy issues there which could be explored.
We should also find ways to make training in the literacies listed by Data Pop Alliance available in our postgraduate and graduate programs on a permanent basis, perhaps by designing credit validation policies and interdisciplinary courses for that purpose. These literacies should be framed as a kind of "second language learning" experience, in the sense that people should learn how to engage with and about data around relevant, real-life topics by making meanings from the new semiotic resources made available to them by their expert- peers.
More importantly, these studies and teaching initiatives will be effective and critical in the positive sense of the word only inasmuch as they sustain a respectful, but inquisitive, dialogue with the practitioners of DS and DV whose quantitative, data-centric worldviews are behind the whole process of datafication of the world. Of course, this presupposes that just like we "qualitative" people are willing to learn the basics of DS, so our "quantitative" counterparts should be open to acquire some basic knowledge and appreciation concepts in linguistics, semiotics, discourse analysis and so on.
And, likewise, this should be done in a "qualitative as a second language" fashion for them, perhaps through self-ethnographies in their own field. But I believe pursuing humans' ontological vocation, as Freire urged us to do, is crucially an interdisciplinary enterprise. Unless we define human happiness and dignity as "ontological surrender.

Erich Fromm — was a bestselling psychoanalyst and social philosopher whose views about alienation, love, and sanity in society—discussed in his books such as Escape from Freedom , The Art of Loving , The Sane Society , and To Have or To Be?
Fromm was born in Frankfurt, Germany, to Jewish parents, and studied at the universities of Frankfurt, Heidelberg where in he earned his doctorate in sociology , and Munich. In the s, he was one of the most influential figures at the Frankfurt Institute of Social Research.
In , as the Nazis rose to power, he moved to the United States. He practiced psychoanalysis in both New York and Mexico City before moving to Switzerland in , where he continued his work until his death.
