NETWORKED LABOUR

Networked Labour: Rethinking labour in an age of networks and movements

See: http://www.networkedlabour.net

The upcoming international seminar, titled Networked Labour is initially supported by Networked Politics, Transform! Europe, Transnational Institute and IGOPNET (Institut de Govern the Polítiques Públiques) and it will be held in Amsterdam between 7-9 May 2013.

Networked Politics have been an open project promoted by Transform! Italia, Transnational Institute – New Politics and IGOP, and developed in co-operation with Euromovements.  To provide a space for exchange between activists, researchers and activist-researchers there were several seminars and debates held between 2006 and 2009.  Most of the encounters organised in parallel to the important movement-network gatherings like European and World Social Forums and preparatory meetings that were linked to the Forum processes. Several printed and on-line books, an on-line library, and an on-line  ’New Politics Dictionary’ were among the concrete outcomes of the Network Politics debate; along side the founding of initiatives like the annually held Free Culture Forums.

Our current work will be focusing on the changing worlds of labour and production, and emerging new movements, political actors and their politics. We will mainly be discussing these topics in relation to the accelerating developments in the ICTs. Our hope is to create new synergies by bringing together many contributors and observers of the recent changes, movements, protests, and mobilisations. We hope this will enable us to increase our collective understanding of the new possibilities emerging in front of us for a radical social change.

If you are interested in joining or following this open discussion and exchange simply register to the networked labour weblog. We are looking forward to explore the change together!
