The world (and books): Karatani's The Structure of Empire

The world (and books): Karatani's The Structure of Empire | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Here are some impressions after reading Karatani Kōjin's Teikoku no kōzō: Chūshin shūhen ashūhen (The structure of empire: Centre, margin, submargin), which is a follow-up on his Rekishi no kōzō (published in English as The Structure of History). Although covering much of the same terrain as the latter, the new work's substantial historical discussions centered on China and Japan are a welcome addition to the older work. The new book also introduces a theoretical novelty, namely the distinction between two kinds of nomadism (an idea that also plays a central role in Yûdôron, a companion piece on Yanagita Kunio and nomadism which also appeared last year). Finally, the new book is notable for its carefully celebratory description of empire, which is shown to contain utopian elements..

Growing Local - University of Nebraska Press

Growing Local - University of Nebraska Press | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

In an increasingly commercialized world, the demand for better quality, healthier food has given rise to one of the fastest growing segments of the U.S. food system: locally grown food. Many believe that “relocalization” of the food system will provide a range of public benefits, including lower carbon emissions, increased local economic activity, and closer connections between consumers, farmers, and communities. The structure of local food supply chains, however, may not always be capable of generating these perceived benefits.

Labor in the Global Digital Economy: The Cybertariat Comes of Age

Labor in the Global Digital Economy: The Cybertariat Comes of Age | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
Ursula Huws ties together disparate economic, cultural, and political phenomena of the last few decades to form a provocative narrative about the shape of the global capitalist economy at present. She examines the way that advanced information and communications technology has opened up new fields of capital accumulation: in culture and the arts, in the privatization of public services, and in the commodification of human sociality by way of mobile devices and social networking. These trends are in turn accompanied by the dramatic restructuring of work arrangements, opening the way for new contradictions and new forms of labor solidarity and struggle around the planet.… | more…

Digital Transitions - P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

"Digital Transitions explores the relationship between technological changes and the social, political, economic, and cultural contexts in which these changes occur. Digital technologies have moved into every corner of life and the classic separation between work and non-work has become obsolete. The digital economy has become indistinguishable from life in the digital age. This is a book about the merger of economy and life, about life in digital capitalism.

Stir to Action

Stir to Action | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

"As 2016 lengthens its stride, the ambivalent euphoria of the Paris agreements on climate change gives way to a sense of ‘where to from here?’ While the technicalities of the Kyoto Protocol were never easy fodder for inspiring collective action, the new terrain is arguably even more forbidding on that score."
