A monthly reading group discussing the literature and processes of platformization
Event details of Platformization Reading Group for Early Career Scholars
Start date
19 October 2023
End date
24 July 2024

Digital platforms are reintermediating all aspects of social life, all around the world. This reading group is a space for early career scholars to meet and discuss the processes of platformization, its influences and methodologies to study it. Topics discussed in the group have included gig work, platform infrastructures, geographies of platformization, and influencer labour. During each monthly sessions we discuss a couple of pieces of literature around a specific theme related to online platforms, or other members’ work-in-progress.

The platformization reading group is a monthly 2-hour discussion bringing together an interdisciplinary group of PhD and postdoc researchers. Currently, the group meets every third Wednesday of the month from 15.00-17.00, followed by drinks. As the group deals with published literature as well as work-in-progress, commitment to more than just one session as active group members is highly encouraged.

The sessions will take place on the following dates:

  • January 17, REC C3.05
  • February 21, OMHP C1.23
  • March 20, OMHP C1.23
  • April 24, OMHP E0.13
  • May 22, OMHP C2.23
  • June 19, OMHP C1.23
  • July 24, OMHP C1.23

The reading group is in person only. Readings for each session will be send to participants after registration.
