Nights of labour (NoL) is the blog of a Marxist researcher/teacher/activist based in London and Istanbul, editor for the journal Historical Materialism and currently completing a PhD thesis in development studies on a multi-sited ethnography of the global recycling market, which seeks to understand how the impersonal and abstract power of the market is made possible by the everyday practices of its participants (including scavengers, traders and financial brokers). The title of the blog comes from Jacques Ranciere’s book, Nights of Labour where workers in the nineteenth century spent their nights to publish the magazine L’Atelier, with Saint Simonian intellectuals.
