Al-Adala عدالة is the Arabic word for justice, fairness, and equality.
OUR LAB WORKS TO CREATE A JUST, FAIR, AND EQUAL DIGITALLY MEDIATED SOCIETY.
The Al-Adala Lab, or (ADA)LAb, accomplishes this by and through an explicit focus on understanding the everyday experiences of people who are systematically marginalized across physical and digital environments; people who are pushed to the boundaries of society based on various intersections of their identity, such as race, class, gender, or sexual orientation. Drawing on critical approaches (e.g. decolonial, critical race, and feminist science) and methods (e.g. participatory and speculative), we work to better understand the societal impacts of sociotechnical systems, critique the design of existing sociotechnical systems, and create novel sociotechnical systems that address complex and pressing social problems.
