Panel 06a - Worker’s precarity: audio-visual representations of resistance

Convenors: Lana Askari (University of Manchester), Paloma Yáñez Serrano (University of Manchester), Jose Luis Fajardo-Escoffie (University of Sheffield)

Short abstract: This panel seeks to explore workers’ resistance by discussing how audio-visual methods and representations seek to communicate their precarious experiences and protests. We welcome current and past reflections on worker’s rights and resistances, encouraging feminist and political ecological approaches.

    Authors: Amanda Belantara (New York University), Emily Drabinski (The Graduate Center, CUNY)
