Event details

Professor Jodi Dean visits Winchester Centre for Global Futures in Art Design & Media at WSA for an open seminar entitled 'Exploitation in Communicative Capitalism'.

Exploitation in Communicative Capitalism

Some have suggested that networked digital media herald an age free from exploitation, that they so fundamentally change work, value, and scarcity as to make the notion of exploitation outmoded. In this lecture, Jodi Dean takes a different view, presenting six versions of exploitation specific to communicative capitalism.

Jodi is Professor of Political Science at Hobart and William Smith Colleges in Geneva, New York. Her teaching and research focus on contemporary political and media theory. Jodi is the co-editor of the international electronic journal of contemporary critical theory, Theory & Event. She is the author or editor of ten books, including: Zizek's Politics, Democracy and Other Neoliberal Fantasies, and Blog Theory.
