LaborComm – Uluslararası İşçi ve İletişim Konferansı

Today’s capitalism rises on networked production processes that rely strongly on information and communication technologies (ICTs). Additionally, economic activities related with communication are now considered as one of the most strategic sectors for capitalist accumulation. However, current global crisis of capitalist system paves the way for questioning the system and the emergence of new approaches in communication studies as well. Among these new approaches, idealists claim that the crisis can be overcome by the expansion and deepening of ICTs and related services markets. In contrast, realists critically analyze the structure of capitalist communication industries, the qualifications of its products and the labor processes through the concepts of political economy.

LaborComm 2013 aims to discuss new approaches rising in the communication studies and to uncover their significance for labor in the context of the current global crisis of capitalism.
