Sunday, January 31 @ 1:30pm-4:00pm: Join this online reading group and discussion of the most recent issue of Socialist Register dedicated to Leo Panitch. This first session will begin with Ursula Huws‘ essay, “Reaping the Whirlwind: Digitalization, Restructuring, and Mobilization in the Covid Crisis.” This work addresses the changes currently sweeping through global labor markets during the coronavirus pandemic, looking at the concentration of capital and expansion of market share by global corporations, bringing with it the digital management of supply chains and an exponential growth in algorithmic control and surveillance of workers.
Ursula Huws is Professor of Labour and Globalisation at the University of Hertfordshire in the UK and author of several books including Labor in the Global Digital Economy: The Cybertariat Comes of Age and The Making of a Cybertariat: Virtual Work in a Real World.
