The Knowledge and Digital Capitalism reading group is hosted by the Culture, Politics and Global Justice research cluster in collaboration with gloknos. The aim of the group is to engage in the discussion of different ways in which contemporary forms of knowledge production in the broadest sense – from education and research, to big data and algorithmic governance – interact and intersect with the creation of value in, and through, digital capitalism. The group builds on one-month intensive Platform capitalism reading group that met during Easter Term 2018.   

This event is open to all, regardless of background, education, or disciplinary affiliation, and no prior registration is necessary. The selection of readings aims to reflect recent publications on the topic; we always welcome suggestions for additions.

Where possible, links are provided to online versions of readings available either for free or to University members via IDiscover/Raven; if you need access to any of these, get in touch and we’ll do our best to help. All queries can be addressed to Dr. Jana Bacevic
