Positionality refers to the individual, social, and political context that creates a person’s identity, e.g., race, class, gender, sexuality, ability, status, and how such markers influence the stance people take, or what they can access, in society. In a postdigital era, it becomes necessary to expand these markers of people’s positions to include numerous effects and potential bias from all forms of technological and biodigital, data-driven systems and related discourses. Postdigital positionality is a concept that develops former theoretical framings of positionality to reflexively acknowledge a complex interplay of new postdigital technologies and knowledge ecologies intersecting with human identity.
