Two days earlier, we will also be hosting this seminar on Tuesday October 24, at 4pm at the Magill Campus.
All welcome at both.

Seminar by Dr Kylie Jarrett on Online Harassment
Geek masculinity, unprotected settings and cognitive capitalism: the political economy of online harassment
Online harassment is a widespread dimension of the contemporary digitally mediated workplace, not least because networked technologies render the boundaries between work and non-work unclear and mutable. This is particularly significant for those working in creative industries where a robust online presence is essential to career advancement. Drawing on work from a forthcoming book – NSFW: Sex, Humor, and Risk in Social Media (MIT Press) co-written with Susanna Paasonen and Ben Light – this seminar will map the affective and political economy of these forms of symbolic violence, placing online harassment within the economic logics of contemporary capitalism. It begins by exploring the economic costs for its victims, before considering the individualising of those risks through the legal and policy spaces in which online harassment occurs. Finally, it considers the key prism through which online harassment is understood – geek masculinity – linking its politics to cultural tendencies within the wider economy. In effect, this seminar will explore how online harassment may be more a feature than a bug of the contemporary digitised workplace.
Presented by the Hawke EU Centre for Mobilities, Migrations and Cultural Transformations and the School of Communication, International Studies and Languages at the University of South Australia
