Event description

Description

Which technologies have emancipatory potential? Is human labour becoming surplus to capital or genuinely free from exploitation? What does a post-work world look like?

It is impossible to discuss work, gender or technology in isolation. Work as a social institution is, and has always been, thoroughly gendered in its inclusions and exclusions and is a key nexus between capitalism and patriarchy. With increasing automation affecting certain forms of labour and dominating the discussion, it is crucial to address technologies of work as an intersectional issue.

We invite you to be an active participant in this symposium, in which we hope to collectively develop a series of radical proposals for the future of work.

Confirmed panelists who will give expert insights and stimulate discussion in breakout sessions include:

RAMON AMARO • PHOEBE MOORE • NINA POWER • FRANCESCA SOBANDE • NICK SRNICEK • MARINA VISHMIDT
