CLAM/IMS-UERJ, in collaboration with Coding Rights and Tactical Tech Collective, will host an introductory workshop on how these technologies and databases relate to gender and sexuality issues. In the workshop, we will discuss how data technologies work, how they track information, what kind of personal data is collected by health apps such as period and fertility trackers.
