Data Literacy: Reflecting on Citizenship in the Age of Big Data


I discuss the possible contributions that a model based on data literacy brings to the context of applied linguistics, focusing on the paradigm transformations it would bring about. I acknowledge the growing importance that data has achieved in our society while reflecting upon the hegemonic processes of data extractivism and surveillance capitalism. Lastly, the possibilities of epistemological resistance offered by data literacy are examined.
