How are the compulsions and convulsions of late capitalism reconfiguring work, its spaces, value regimes, and political possibilities? And how are these reconfigurations of work imbricated within shifting dynamics of urban development and urbanized value formation? This AAG convening seeks to engage researchers and activists working at these intersections through a conversation on the phenomena of work outside the wage in our young, urban century. Against the individualistic orthodoxies of the neoliberal academy, we suggest that collective thinking produces better scholarship. We envision this paired AAG paper session and workshop as an opportunity to collectively explore alternative, collaborative authorship models for a special issue, or other publication, experimenting with critical comparative approaches.
