Interchange – IU Professor David Hakken: Anthropology and Informatics

Host Dave Stewart interviews Professor David Hakken, of the School of Informatics, in the group of Social Informatics, here at Indiana University. David Hakken carried out two anthropological studies of class, culture, and worker education in Sheffield, England; one, nine years before, and the second, one year after the miners’ strike (1984-1985), arguably the watershed event in working class activism in late twentieth-century Britain. Currently there is activism in Europe (the Anomalous Wave) regarding Higher Education, and that movement and its implications are explored. A fascinating discussion of Information and how it is used, Unions and their importance in Labor, and Education and its role in the new economy.
