CS640f Labour, Media, and Culture

This course investigates contested intersections of work, labour, and employment on the one hand and media, culture, and communication on the other. Anchored in political-economic perspectives on work and labour, the course introduces and assesses a range of concepts for theorizing labour under conditions of contemporary capitalism. Topics surveyed include: work and identity; communication as a form of labour; labour markets, work organization, and employment relationships in creative industries; cultural work and governmentality; the global division of labour in communication industries; affect and the ‘creative’ workplace; media representations of labour; the restructuring of labour through digital networks; and labour policies for sustainable creative economies.
