Studied Melancholia

Nick Dyer-Witheford, who wrote Cyber-Marx, has a new book out called Cyber-Proletariat. I haven’t read either book, but it’s on one or other list of things to read now. I noticed the other day, he’s giving a talk at the Toronto Reference Library in March, so I thought I might go, but first needed to read up.  I came across an interview with Viewpoint Magazine in which he talks about autonomist Marxism and communization theory. Dyer-Witheford refers to the chronic optimism of autonomist Marxism, but describes communization as having a “very studied melancholia.” Love that line.

Hope he uses it during the talk.
