It has been a busy few months and my updates have been lax. Travel took me to the American Studies Association’s 2014 Meeting in Los Angeles and then, just days later, to New York City for the Digital Labor 2014 conference at The New School. Both were extraordinary events and wonderful opportunities to talk about CCM, digital labor, and politics, more generally. The ASA conference was an opportunity to meet with scholars engaged in critical research of all types, and the Digital Labor conference was a chance to drill down into the issues specific to that topic, including engaging with digital laborers and activists who were present. It was an exciting and busy month.
As a part of the New York event, many participants were captured on video discussing a wide range of issues relevant to the conference topic and theme. They are collected here and can be viewed by anyone who might be interested; the conversations are wide-range and quite fascinating. My own brief interview is here, but I encourage readers to seek out the many voices of participants that are available.
