transmediale Marshall McLuhan Lecture 2017 by Sarah Sharma

The 2017 transmediale Marshall McLuhan Lecture was delivered at the Embassy of Canada on 31 January 2017 by Sarah Sharma. Her recent research analyzes the male fantasy of exit as it manifests in nationalist movements, the omnipresent drive towards automation, and the concept of escaping work. In her talk, Sharma asks if a “feminist exit movement” can be established, wondering who will pick up the pieces when the robots leave and there is nowhere left to go?
