Professor Breen will present research from his recently published book, Uprising: The Internet's Unintended Consequences. The seminar will explore the foundations of the shift in the circulation of transgressive knowledge by developing the theory of proletarianization. The analysis includes two case studies that illustrate the increased rise of transgressive knowledge due to the Internet: jihad and pornography.
