About Wilhelm Peekhaus

I employ critical, Marxist political economic analytical frameworks to my research, which investigates social issues that traverse the boundaries between the analog and the digital, the material and immaterial. My current research agenda, which falls broadly within the field of information policy, interrogates issues such as the labour of academic publishing, and the ways that marginalized social groups in South Africa (poor farmers) harness knowledge and information and communication technologies in their struggles for development.
