Douglas Spielman (dspielma@live.unc.edu)

B.A., Anthropology and Sociology, University of Vermont

M.A., Communication and Culture, York University

 

Douglas studies the articulations among work, finance, and everyday life.  He is especially concerned with how financial and exchange media function to (1) concretize abstract economic forms within people’s daily experience, and (2) structure projects of political intervention and resistance. His master’s thesis looked at representations of time (particularly the temporality of the labor process) in Marx’s theory of value. Douglas’s other interests include continental philosophy, and contemporary experiments in organizational and political form.
