Module overview

Digital media influence and shape the ways we live and engage with others – not least in the world of work. Mobile apps, algorithmic cultures and automated decision making have ushered in a world of influencer marketing, freelancing and gig work that is impacting industries across the economy, from critical and creative labour to the platform economy, healthcare, and manufacturing. In this module you will engage with the impact of digital media on contemporary workers, workplaces, and work practices to develop a critical understanding of the rapidly changing contours of digital labour.
