  • CCM Colloquium - Digital Feudalism: Creators, Credit, Consumption, and Capitalism

    Friday, February 3, 2023

    3:00 PM-4:30 PM

    Constantine Papadakis Integrated Sciences Building (PISB) Hassman Family Conference Room 103 3245 Chestnut Street Philadelphia, PA 19104

    • Everyone

    The Communication, Culture and Media graduate program welcomes David Arditi, PhD, associate professor of sociology, University of Texas at Arlington, to campus.  Dr. Arditi also serves as the director of the Center for Theory. As a gigging drummer, David became interested in the livelihoods of musicians. His research is focused on the intersection of music, culture, and technology.

    Over the past two decades, corporations and venture capitalists have adjusted business models to change the digital world. As a result, the global economy has undergone a massive shift, changing the way we work, consume and pay for things. Under this new ‘digital feudalism’, we find precarious employment via digital platforms, we buy goods and services in perpetuity through subscriptions, and we pay for it all with debt. Digital Feudalism explores this new moment in capitalism, and how reliant global economies have become on these processes of consumption, work, and debt.

    His book Getting Signed: Record Contracts, Musicians and Power in Society, explores the way musicians’ dreams become their source of exploitation. David’s other books include Streaming Culture: Subscription Platforms and the Unending Consumption, and iTake-Over: The Recording Industry in the Streaming Era. David co-edited The Dialectic of Digital Culture with Jennifer Miller. He is the editor of Fast Capitalism.

    MacAlister Hall 3025G

    • Everyone

    With the prevalence of disinformation geared to instill doubt rather than clarity, Creating Chaos Online unmasks disinformation when it attempts to pass as deliberation in the public sphere and distorts the democratic processes. Asta Zelenkauskaitė finds that repeated tropes justifying Russian trolling were found to circulate across not only all analyzed media platforms’ comments but also across two analyzed sociopolitical contexts suggesting the orchestrated efforts behind messaging.
