When we think about the sharing economy we tend to conjure Uber, AirBnb and other mega corporations capitalizing on and exploiting needy people under the guise of sharing and caring.

Before the rise of this "alternative" economy, however, people were already imagining new modes of gift giving. Couched within that we have the world of knowledge sharing.


This panel reflects on how information is shared on the internet and particularly in how feminist and/or alternative networks distribute this information differently.

The discussion will be held in English.
