UW Research




AfterLab is dedicated to critical study of information, data, and archives in times of transition, crisis, or upheaval. Thematically rooted in the overlapping domains of critical information studies, critical data studies, and critical archival studies, AfterLab members support and reflect topical and methodological diversity, with particular emphasis on humanistic and critical social scientific methods. Regardless of the domain of inquiry, AfterLab faculty, students, and affiliates approach information, data, and archives as constructed and yet indispensable to how we conceive of life in precarious worlds.
