Dr. Radhika Gajjala is presenting at the SMC Research Colloquium. Her presentation is titled "Digital Subaltern 2.0: Micro-finance, Affective Labor, and Virtual Empowerment?"  September 16, 2014, Tuesday, 1:00-2:15 PM, 121 West Hall.

What technologies of power, literacy, and culture play into the “internets” that weave the online and offline through the rural and urban, through the private and the public through the nation state and scattered hegemonies? How do the political economic hierarchies between the Global North and Global South play into this staging of the digital subaltern? When, how, and why do these “internets” contribute to the production of “trans” flows of capital. What kind of communicative and technical labor shapes and structures these so called “flows”? When is the subaltern brought online and for what purpose? What role might the “constituting power of the image” and the “logics of affect” play in the relationships that materialize the digital subaltern 2.0? These are interrelated questions even when they seem not to be. In this presentation, I will attempt to show how these questions link up in “digital subaltern 2.0” through an interplay of affect, digital finance and social media tools. Related publications authored by Dr. Gajjala: Books, "Cyberculture and the Subaltern"; "Cyberfeminism 2.0”
