Knowledge Work and Human Rights in the Cybercultural Age

  • Pramod K. Nayar

    ()

Registered author(s):

    The current knowledge economy in terms of their human rights component, the author argues, offers a space where demands and claims can be articulated. Websites, databases, documentation and archives about Rwanda, Bosnia or Indian dalits are ‘archives of suffering’. And this databasing of atrocity, deprivation and suffering is a counter-knowledge, an alternate view of both knowledge-work and globalization itself. Using critical theorists in new media and cyberculture studies, I explore the new domain of knowledge that online databases offer exploring a human rights website Witness (www.witness.org) and its poetics.
