Video Dialogue for Week 1 – Labour

The first video dialogue is up!

Anne Balsamo interviews Judy Wajcman on the “History of the Engagement of Feminism, Technology and Labor”:

The first section is mostly discussion of Wajcman’s earlier work at the intersections of Marxism and feminism, in the ’70s. They then move on to talk about shifts in labour since then related to technological change, such as the globalisation of labour markets, the dominance of tech companies, changing working patterns; the end of the discussion is about affirmative action and its effectiveness.
