Platform Capitalism (Seminar)

Dozent/in: Milan Stürmer

14-täglich | Donnerstag | 09:45 - 13:15 | 24.10.2022 - 03.02.2023 | HMS D22

Inhalt: From AirBnB to AWS, from Facebook to Siemens' MindSphere, from Rolls Royce's jet engines to India's Aadhaar, few major economic players and even nation states have not, in some way or another, embraced "the platform-model." But what do we mean when we call something a platform? In this seminar, we will try to make sense of a range of phenomena hiding behind the broad term "platform" by looking at their history in car manufacturing, the economics of some of today's major platforms, as well as their political implications for both party politics and workplace organizing and the "epistemic chaos of platform capitalism" (Carrigan and Fatsis, 2021) in public discourse. At the end of the seminar, we will try to evaluate the affordances of the platform model and discuss its possible futures.
