Digital Labor Reference Library

The Digital Labor Reference Library is a work in progress, built by four CUNY Graduate Center sociologists at different stages in their dissertation research. As such, it represents a collaborative attempt to sketch out reading lists for an emerging terrain. Collected here are things we have read, are reading, and are in conversation about. It is by no means a complete list.

Our plan is to update the library as we conduct our research, write our dissertations, and generally explore what it means to be laboring digitally in contemporary capitalism. We will also be reviewing work on our blog. If you would like to suggest something be added to the library or for us to review, please leave us a comment on this page.
