Michael L. Siciliano

I am a sociologist of labor, culture, and technology. My research examines three core issues: the Future of Work; Creativity, Culture, and the Digital; and Aesthetics and Affect in Social Life.

My research has appeared in peer-reviewed journals such as Ethnography, Organization Studies, Poetics, International Journal of Cultural Policy, International Journal of Communication, and Research in the Sociology of Work.

My first book Creative Control: The Ambivalence of Work in the Culture Industries was published in 2021 by Columbia University Press.

My teaching takes a global perspective on labor, media, and culture while focusing on the social processes that produce and mediate inequality in terms of the intersections of class, race, gender, sexuality, and place.
