Coming out soon: Platformisation of Urban Life

Platformization of Urban Life Since mid 2021, I have been working on a chapter together with Kiley Goyette, PhD researcher at the University of Toronto, Canada, entitled

Second Shift 2.0. Intensifying housework in platform urbanism

In this chapter we examine how Airbnb hosts manage the demands of hosting while balancing this labour with the other duties in their lives such as housework, childcare, and paid employment.

The chapter will be part of the book Platformisation of Urban Life. Towards a Technocapitalist Transformation European Cities soon available here open access. Edited by Anke StrĂ¼ver and Sybille Bauriedl and published by Transcript/Columbia University Press/Gazelle Book Services.
