Now (finally) available as paperback: Reconsidering Value and Labour in
the Digital Age, ed. Eran Fisher & Christian Fuchs.
How do labour and value-production change in the age of Facebook,
YouTube and Twitter?
The labour theory of value is one of the core tenets of Marx’s theory of
historical materialism, and of his understanding of capitalism. It is
the theory that connects value to class structure, and that unveils the
exploitative social relations that lay behind prices of commodities.
This volume explores current interventions into the digital labour
theory of value, proposing theoretical and empirical work that
contributes to our understanding of Marx's labour theory of value,
proposes how labour and value are transformed under conditions of
digital and social media, and employ the theory in order to shed light
on specific practices.
