Stephen Campbell - Border Capitalism, Disrupted

June 20, 2018

The Capitalism Workshop celebrates the publication of Border Capitalism, Disrupted, an insightful ethnography of precarious migrant labor at the Mae Sot Special Border Economic Zone on the Myanmar border in northwest Thailand. Building upon workerist and autonomist theory and grounding it in ethnographic fieldwork, Stephen Campbell highlights the ways in which workers' struggles have catalyzed transformations in labour regulation at the frontiers of capital in the global south. In this session of The Capitalism Workshop, Campbell discusses the everyday practices of migrants, the police, employers, NGOs, and private passport brokers to understand the "politics of precarity" and the new forms of worker organization and resistance that are emerging in Asian industrial zones. Please RSVP to Attend

Time: 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Venue: CSI Annex, Room #1 (2nd flr)
