    Digital platforms like Uber and Airbnb are transforming how people work, create and share value, and sustain themselves in their everyday lives. As such, platforms are becoming increasingly ubiquitous as new institutional actors that redraw relations between civil society, the market, and the state. Yet, as many scholars have shown, such relations have historically been shaped by pervasive gender, class, and racial subordination. It is therefore crucial to ask to what extent platforms, as new sites of capital accumulation, governance, and norm-making, remediate existing inequalities and if/how they also generate new vulnerabilities or tools for empowerment. Accordingly, this research project aims to determine how digital platforms are reconfiguring the gendered, classed, and racialized organization of labor and social reproduction in post-welfare societies. To achieve this aim, three objectives have to be met: • determining how on-demand labor platforms distribute new opportunities and vulnerabilities for workers along gender, class, and racial lines; • determining how digital platforms create new solutions and challenges for the gendered, classed, and racialized problem of social reproduction in post-welfare societies; • determining which policy and legal issues arise when labor and social reproduction are increasingly organized through platforms and identifying ways to tackle these issues. These objectives will be met through a cross-national comparative study that examines how platforms operate in three quickly growing and distinct tech hubs: Amsterdam, Berlin, and New York City. To organize this transatlantic study an innovative research platform will be developed and implemented, which enables (1) participatory research, (2) international scholarly collaboration and stakeholder engagement, and (3) the dissemination and discussion of research findings. The participatory research will combine ethnography and methods from software studies.

    ETHNOSCHISM traces an ambient, diffuse but influential ethnotype, that of a manly, rough-hewn North vs. a frivolous, charming South – the former framed in terms of its ‘Germanic’ ethnolinguistic roots, the latter as ‘Romance’ or Latin. It analyses the widely-ramifying discursive diffusion of this ethnotype in its continuing ‘banal’ presence as a frame for social and political relations. The subject is highly topical, raising the still-burning issue of national intra-European divisions in terms of imputed ‘national characters’ by going it back to the years of their crystallisation (1914-1929) and studying the impact of cultural representations have in the political prejudices and ideologies. ETHNOSCHISM develops a new, interdisciplinary theory of the European North-South-opposition by studying its conceptual history from a radically interdisciplinary basis, combining the latest insights in 3 related specialisms in the culture-historical Humanities: imagology, the history of knowledge production (namely in racial theorizing), the intellectual history of European nationalisms. It studies ethnotypes in a completely new and original way, using them as a common discursive factor in the cultural field of representations and the political history of international relations. The methodological toolbox includes methods and approaches from different disciplines: the transnational and interdisciplinary history of national thought, Discourse Historical Approach, Imagology. The outputs include: two articles, a commented anthology, an edited book; two academic workshops. Measures to communicate the project activities include a website on the project, a temporary exhibition, the creation of an Educational Package for secondary-school students. Research and training activities at the Dept. of European Studies (UvA) will directly benefit my career prospects, equipping me with new skills and knowledge, and placing me at the forefront of the field as an interdisciplinary researcher.
