PhD Salon: with Cori Hayden
September 13 @ 13:00 - 14:30
ETHOS LAB, 3A30 (IT University of Copenhagen)
Cori Hayden is a leading voice in STS and anthropology. Her work has focused on the anthropology of the biochemical sciences, global pharmaceutical politics and postcolonial engagements with intellectual properties. A key theme that she has been developing for many years has been the relationship between privatization and ‘public-ization’, and the way technologies (of the law and otherwise) reconfigure notions of ‘public good’, the commons, and the public domain. Through subsequent projects like “Taking as Giving” and “The Proper Copy” she has explored how the public and private are epistemically organised. In recent years, she has been running a network called The Cloud and the Crowd, and a graduate seminar on the same name, which brings her work in biomedicine, labour and the law into dialogue with technologies of media.See more here http://cstms.berkeley.edu/special-projects/the-cloud-and-the-crowd/the-cloud-and-the-crowd-multicampus-research-group-in-the-humanities/
She is a fantastic interlocutor on themes such as ‘the invention of the masses’, speculation and inflation in market crowds, microworking and the gig economy, power and society of control, platform politics, data and health surveillance/monitoring, public and population, test bed urbanism and data cities.
