HFMK03303U FM, Module 1: Organizational and institutional analysis - Seminar A: Digital Media: (Infra)structure, Labour and Inequalities

Volume 2018/2019

Master in Film and Media Studies, 2016-curriculum


Digital media economies and industries pose particular challenges for institutional and organisational analysis. This seminar will address these challenges by (1) situating digital media and technology companies in their wider contexts of the platform society and surveillance capitalism. (2) Next, we will look at the material and political underpinnings of these broader structures in terms of infrastructure, policy and regulation. (3) This will bring us to operational aspects of digital media, particularly pioneer communities and digital labour. (4) We finish the course with a number of seminars on specific forms of inequality and discrimination (such as gender, sexuality and sexism, and race and ethnicity) related to digital media and their organisations.
