Socialists on Social Media /w Dr. Tanner Mirrlees
In the digital age, socialists have used social media platforms to their advantage, both for messaging and organizing. But what kind of a radical politics can really emerge from the clutches of digital capitals and the dominance of the contemporary Internet Big Tech? Dr. Tanner Mirrlees of Ontario Tech University is optimistic! Tanner helps us find some hope in the age of posting by historicizing the Internet, leftist media, and media criticism, as well as probing how leftists can navigate ‘entrepreneurial’ content creation.
