Learning Group Session #7 📚
19:00 Thursday, 28 May 2020
Tech Workers Coalition Berlin - Learning Club
Learning is central to workers’ empowerment. Without knowledge on the complex world we operate in, we are prey to the interests of those who capitalize on exploitation. Tech Worker Coalition organizes regular sessions in the form of reading groups to read and discuss articles, books and pamphlets about a variety of topics that sit on the boundary between technology critique, politics, philosophy and sociology. The role of the Tech Worker, the possible strategies and the history of worker organizations are also targets to our work.
Digitalized Workplace and surveillance
This month we are going to read an analysis from Dr. Phoebe Moore about the raise of the digitalized workplace in the last decades and the role it played in reshaping the employer/employee relationship. The focus is on how this new form of workplace enables many new and diverse forms of physical and psychosocial violence against the worker.
The Threat of Physical and Psychosocial Violence and Harassment in Digitalized Work
We expect to have the author join our conversation.
