Niels van Doorn― Moderator
Niels van Doorn is Assistant Professor of New Media and Digital Culture at the University of Amsterdam and a fellow at the Netherlands Institute of Advanced Study (NIAS), Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW). His research interests are many but are tied together by two main questions: how do people sustain themselves and each other in precarious circumstances?; and how does the notion of value come into being at the intersection of political and moral economies? His current research examines platforms as new institutional forms that reorganize modes of production and social reproduction – particularly focusing on low-income service labor. He has published in a variety of journals, including New Media & Society, Cultural Politics, and Environment & Planning D. Together with Professor Ellen Rutten he also co-chairs the Digital Emotions research group at the Amsterdam School of Cultural Analysis (ASCA).
