Constructing the Digital: Working from the Global South

AoIR 2024 Flashpoint Symposium

Department of Communication, University of Hyderabad (UoH), India, and the Indian Institute of Information Technology (IIIT), Hyderabad • 13 April 2024

This Association of Internet Researchers (AoIR) Flashpoint Symposium will explore forms and structures of labour contributing to digital infrastructures, content, and systems, and presents an extensive opportunity for emerging and senior scholars, members of the digital/platform labour rights advocacy and activist community in the region to connect around critical questions related to the theme.

In addition to two keynote panels, this one-day symposium will feature three thematic panels dealing with the labour behind the construction of the digital—as platform, infrastructure, device, content, environment, or medium, with particular emphasis on experiences and perspectives from underrepresented groups.
