Bio/Research

Greig de Peuter researches the political economy of digital media and cultural production, with a focus on work, employment, and collective organizing. He is coauthor, with Nicole Cohen, of New Media Unions: Organizing Digital Journalists and, with Nick Dyer-Witheford, of Games of Empire: Global Capitalism and Video Games.

His current research documents collective responses to exploitation, precarity, and inequalities within media, art, and other cultural sectors. The primary framework for this research is Cultural Workers Organize, a SSHRC-funded collaboration with Enda Brophy, Nicole Cohen, Kate Oakley, and Marisol Sandoval. Cultural Workers Organize has published on alternative worker organizations, union drives, policy reform proposals, worker co-operatives, and coworking spaces, among other infrastructures of mutual aid.

Alongside his research, Greig has frequently worked collaboratively on alternative education, public scholarship, and curatorial projects. He was a cofounder of Critical U, the Toronto School of Creativity & Inquiry, and Letters & Handshakes. In these and other collective contexts, he has co-organized several public forums, symposiums, and exhibitions.

Prior to his current position, he was a visiting scholar at New York University in the Department of Social and Cultural Analysis. He received a PhD in Communication from Simon Fraser University.
