Calle Knight, born and raised in New York’s Hudson Valley, learned early on in her academic career at Poughkeepsie Day School how establish academic connections founded on serious inquiry, and hasn’t stopped since. After transferring to Eugene Lang College at The New School, she was exposed to the concept of Digital Labor, and has delved deeper into the subject through many advanced courses resulting in publications, and an Academic Fellowship. In academia, her greatest interests lie with unwaged affective labor, digital performativity, and the impact of the gig — often referred to as “sharing”— economy on inter/national labor laws and customs. In her personal life, her greatest interests lie with cooking and baking paleo/gluten-free/vegan treats, falling in love with animals, and enjoying her two homes.
