Anthropology and Social Change Third Annual Conference: There is No App for That: The Changing Nature of Work, Social Reproduction, and Collective Action. Friday, April 24th, 11am to 7pm @ CIIS in San Francisco, CA

Co-sponsored by PM Press & KPFA

San Francisco has become a theater of contradictions: gentrification and eviction, dispossession and injury, adjunctification of university labor, environmental destruction, exploitative sharing economies, and many forms of precarity. At the same time, forms of grassroots struggles and solidarity are emerging with surprising originality and force: rank and file solidarity unionism, anti-eviction networks, movements against police brutality and the prison industrial complex, environmental activism, and adjunct organizing.

To help examine the current conjuncture, the Anthropology and Social Change department at CIIS is proud to host a one day conference examining contemporary violence and marginalization, precarious labor regimes, and emerging patterns of resistance. Two sessions will be followed by a plenary discussion between participants.

The conference is free and open to the public; you may attend any and/or all sessions.
