Tech and its labours: beyond false consciousness and empowerment

Dear colleagues:

I wanted to bring to your attention the details for the symposium “Tech and its labours: beyond false consciousness and empowerment” I (Juan M. del Nido, Cambridge University) am organising with Dr. Milagros Miceli (Weizenbaum Institute) on February 6th. It’s an open and free event, so feel free to circulate among your networks!

Tech and its Labours: beyond false consciousness and empowerment
Sponsored by Cambridge University, the Philomathia Foundation and the Weizenbaum Institute, this day-long, hybrid symposium will bring together scholars, activists, and platform workers to discuss the work that creates, reproduces, and sustains platform technologies. This discussion requires, as well, examining the works platform companies engage in to create, reproduce, and sustain the politico-economic, aesthetic, and ethic imagination where they and their ways of knowing make sense.

Questions that we will address include: Confirmed Programme (NOTE: all hours Central European Time): Register here:
