Digital society and capitalism
Editor: Professor Mike Grimshaw (University of Canterbury, New Zealand).
Scope: Digital society has been lauded as emancipatory and freeing individuals from the constrictions of time and place and yet also critiqued as introducing a type of techno-feudalism of data extraction. The vaunted freedom of work and leisure time, work-space and leisure-place, has occurred to some, yet for many others it has created the collapse of work and non-work time and space into a digital surveillance of work, identity and social interaction. There are also issues of technological inequality and generational differences. This article collection addresses the questions that arise concerning the impacts and challenges that digital society provides for and against capitalism.
