Algorithms of Resistance

A new open-access book:
Bonini, T. & Treré, E. (2024). Algorithms of Resistance: The Everyday Fight against Platform Power. The MIT Press. electronic: 9780262377485 " While accounts of platform power tend to come across as bleak and monolithic, Algorithms of Resistance shows how people can resist algorithms across a variety of domains. Drawing from rich ethnographic materials and perspectives from both the Global North and South, authors Tiziano Bonini and Emiliano Treré explore how people appropriate and reconfigure algorithms to pursue their objectives in three domains of everyday life: gig work, cultural industries, and politics.
