It was a pleasure to speak with Trebor Scholz’s “Digital Labor” class at the New School about care work, affective labor, and affect itself. We had a very lively and interesting conversation around the question of “who or what ‘takes care’ of you?” and the role of the digital as an agent of potential (complicated) care. I’m looking forward to seeing these students’ project emerge over the semester. It’s a great class.
