Editor's gathering for thread technocapitalism

Gathering: Editor's gathering for thread technocapitalism

Recalling that Donna Haraway’s Cyborg was never meant to be a wired, blissed-out bunny, Marc Bousquet and Katherine Wills recover the political dimension in socialist-feminist thought. Their five-volume edited series, “The Politics of Information,” brings class back into cultural studies, considers the Web as crucial to the expanding ‘informatics of domination,’ and recovers the cyborg as a key figure for an entire world of labor and lifeways.
