Martin Arboleda

On living labor and automation in the new planetary extraction zone.

Martín Arboleda explores the new politics of labor and capital on the frontier of transnational resource extraction - as advances in technology and finance transform mining, we need a new framework to understand 21st century capitalism as global form of social mediation, and new theorizations of the state.

Martín is author of Planetary Mine: Territories of Extraction under Late Capitalism from Verso.
