Work: the digital economy and the labouring body

Tuesday 17 January 2017 6:30PM to 8:00PM

Hosted by The Forum

We are witnessing a transformation of work. From the impact of de-industrialization to the emerging forms of labour generated by technological advances, the changing nature of work reflects deeper economic and political changes. How does the digital economy influence our understanding of the human subject and of community? Does it change our perception of the labouring body? How do people adapt to shifting economies, and what are the ethical and philosophical implications of these changes?
